71 mins: Barcelona have a goal ruled out! Neymar had the ball in the back of the net, but his header came off his own arm before beating Buffon. Now Barcelona’s turn to show their fury at the officials.

More on the goal: Just seconds after Juventus could have had a penalty, Messi surged forward down the middle, easing past a defender before firing in a low shot at goal. Buffon was able to block it, but Suarez showed great anticipation to get there first and fire high into the roof of the net.

68 mins: Suarez scores! Barcelona 2-1 Juventus

67 mins: Big penalty appeal by Pogba. The French midfielder tried to take a cross and turn in the box but went down under a challenge from Dani Alves. The Barcelona full-back a little lucky there.

61 mins: This match reminiscent of the semifinals second leg against Real Madrid, when Juventus went behind and were firmly on the back foot at the Bernabeu, only to fight back and level through Morata. This Juventus side continuing to show some incredible resilience.

Here's a video of that Morata goal:

More on the goal: Marchisio played a key role with a clever back-heel and Barcelona were caught cold, allowing Tevez to turn in the box and hit a low shot that Marc-Andre ter Stegen could only parry right back into the danger zone, where Morata was on hand to apply the finish. Juventus were under real pressure at the start of this second half, but against the odds they’re now level.

55 mins: Juventus make it 1-1, Alvaro Morata!

51 mins: Close from Messi! The Argentinean plays a one-two first with Neymar and then with Suarez on the edge of the box, but just can’t keep his shot down. That would have been something special.

48 mins: Big chance for Barcelona! Rakitic streamed forward from a Juventus corner and bided his time before finding Suarez, but the Uruguayan’s shot with the outside of his right foot was denied at the near post by Buffon.

46 mins: The final is back underway in Berlin, with 45 minutes for Juventus to find an equalizer -- and stop Barcelona from scoring again.

3:38 p.m. EDT: And here's a video look at how close came Barcelona came to getting a seocnd goal, only for Dani Alves to be denied by a sensational save from Gianluigi Buffon.

3:36 p.m. EDT: While waiting for the second half to get underway, take a look at the highlight of the first half -- that fine team goal rounded off by Rakitic

Halftime summary: It appeared Barcelona were going to run away with this Champions League final after Ivan Rakitic gave them an early lead against a Juventus side that took a long while to settle and get to grips with their task. But after that initial 20 minutes, Juventus have come into the game well. Looking much tighter without the ball and showing they carry a threat when going forward.

45 mins: Almost another magical moment for Messi as he cleverly skips past a couple of Juventus defenders before running out of room. But that brings the first half to an end. Barcelona still leading 1-0.

40 mins: Luis Suarez was just inches away from giving Barcelona a 2-0 lead with a poked shot from the edge of the box and then seconds later he forced Buffon to parry over the bar with a fierce rising effort.

35 mins: A strong appeal for a foul on Paul Pogba right on the edge of the Barcelona box, but Jordi Alba appeared to get enough of a touch to the ball first and the contact was definitely outside the area, regardless.

34 mins: when Juventus do go forward, their main joy is coming down their left side, where Paul Pogba and Patrice Evra are linking up well.

33 mins: There’s certainly a bit more of a solid look to Juventus now than the wobbly early stages. Allegri will be relatively happy with the response of his team.

25 mins: Juventus threaten again through a cross that just fails to find a black and white shirt in the penalty box, before Claudio Marchisio drives a shot not far over the crossbar.

24 mins: Juventus’ clearest sight of goal so far sees former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata curl a shot well wide on his left foot.

22 mins: It was Vidal who switched off for the first goal and his mind appears to have gone since then. The Chilean has already been booked and has come close to seeing another yellow on a couple of occasions since. If he fails to calm down, he’ll leave the referee with no choice but to send him back to the dressing room.

20 mins: Juventus starting to settle now after a horrid opening. Allegri’s men are enjoying some better possession, but Barcelona still look incredibly dangerous every time they go forward.

13 mins: Incedible save from Gianluigi Buffon to deny a point-blank effort from Dani Alves. Buffon reacts by screaming at his teammates, who are leaving him horrible exposed in the opening stages.

4 mins: Barcelona lead! With their very first attack, Barcelona go in front inside four minutes. Lionel Messi started the move by firing the ball out to the left for Jordi Alba, before Neymar found Andres Iniesta, who laid it inside for a free Ivan Rakitic to fire home first-time.

2:43 p.m. EDT: The familiar Champions League anthem sounds for the final time this season to welcome the Juventus and Barcelona players out onto the pitch.

2:40 p.m. EDT: The opening ceremony is coming to an end and the players now in the tunnel with kickoff in the Champions League final only five minutes away.

2:16 p.m. EDT: Kickoff now just under 30 minutes away in Berlin’s Olympiastadion.

2:10 p.m. EDT: Among the substitutes tonight, of course, is 35-year-old Xavi. The legendary midfielder will make his final appearance for Barcelona should he come on, having already agreed a move to Qatar this summer. And if Barcelona were to triumph he would become a four-time European Cup winner.

1:36 p.m. EDT: So no surprises then in either lineup. Luis Enrique has fielded a consistent XI through the crucial final months of the season, and he hasn’t altered from that for the big game. Meanwhile, as expected, Andrea Barzagli replaces the injured Giorgio Chiellini. While Chiellini is a loss, Barzagli is a hugely experienced replacement, with the 34-year-old having won more than 50 caps for Italy.

1:32 p.m. EDT: The starting lineups are in:

Preview:The biggest club fixture of the year will carry even more significance on Saturday as both Barcelona and Juventus compete not just for the Champions League title but to complete a rare treble. Barcelona, already the Liga and Copa del Rey winners, can take a clean sweep of major honors for the second time in their history with a victory, while Juventus, winners of a fourth successive Serie A title as well as the Coppa Italia, are on the verge of landing the full set for the first time ever.

But even Juventus have been willing to conced that the final in Berlin’s Olympiastadion will start with Barcelona as firm favorites to get their hands on the European Cup for an incredible fourth time in nine seasons. The Catalan giants have been near faultless in the second half of the season as Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar have rapidly blossomed into one of the most devastating front line’s the world has ever seen. Between them the all-South American trio has already fired 120 goals in all competitions, with Messi leading the way with 60.

Barcelona have overcome significant doubts over coach Luis Enrique in his debut season in charge, and that is true, too, for their opponents with manager Massimiliano Allegri. The former Milan coach was an unpopular appointment when he took over following the sudden departure of the hugely successful and widely loved Antonio Conte last July. But while continuing Juventus’ dominance in Italy, Allegri has led them back to the elite level in Europe. Saturday will mark Juventus’ first Champions League final since they lost on penalties to AC Milan in 2003, and notably their first since the Calciopoli scandal that led to their relegation from Italy’s top flight for the first time ever in 2006.

Juventus’ preparations have been disrupted, though, by a calf injury that ruled out experienced defender Giorgio Chiellini on Wednesday. Check back here for confirmed lineups at around 1:30 p.m. EDT and then get live updates of the Champions League final from 2:45 p.m. Until then, here’s how the teams are expected to line up.
