Video Report: Highlights Of CL Finals Barcelona Beat Manchester United 2-0

The Champions League trophy went to Barcelona, who had outclassed holders Manchester United to win their third Champions League crown with a 2-0 victory.

Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi gave the Catalans a deserved victory and denied United from becoming the first team to win back to back Champions League trophy tonight.

It gave the Spaniards a unique treble having already won their domestic league and cup and meant they repeated a feat United achieved in 1999, which Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson had then claimed would never be matched.

This win crowned a marvellous debut season for his Barcelona's manager Pep Guardiola, who at 38 becomes the youngest coach to take European club football's greatest prize.

It was a special night for Thierry Henry too. The first CL medals in his illustrious career.

"Finally I have won it! I have been waiting for so long for this moment," said the France great, whose daughter celebrated her birthday as well on Wednesday.

"The last five minutes were the longest of my life.

"Even if we were 2-0 up we were playing the best team in the world."

The best team won tonight. Barcelona, the Champions Of Europe.
