The Best Images From Barcelona's Champions League Victory

 After finishing up the match report of Barcelona's 3-1 win over Manchester United in the Champions League final, I realized that this amazing victory deserves two posts. And so, because my "Best Images from..." compilations (Manchester City's FA Cup win and Real Madrid's Copa del Rey win) were so popular, I've decided to make one for this Barcelona victory.

Here are some of the best images from Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Manchester United. Congratulations to FC Barcelona for winning the trophy in beautiful style. I hope you enjoy this latest set of photos.
