Barcelona jumped out a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute of the 2015 Champions League Final in Berlin when midfielder Ivan Rakitic scored off an assist from Andres Iniesta. Barcelona lead Juventus, 1-0.
The Croatian was able to drill the left-footed shot home as Barcelona attacked with Neymar on the left side. The Brazilian found Iniesta, who provided a perfectly placed touch pass to the trailing Rakitic. It was vintage Barcelona, as they used team work to score on their opponent, and even against a collection of star defenders.
Since the strike, Luis Enrique's squad has had several opportunities to increase their lead. Heading into halftime, Barcelona have taken seven shots, with four on target. As always, Barcelona has dominated possession, with roughly 70 percent through much of the first half.
However, Juventus has maintained quality play since the goal, pressuring the Barcelona defense with some impressive attacks and denying Lionel Messi from penetrating up the middle. Massimiliano Allegri has two players who have been booked with yellow cards: Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
