1991/92: FC Barcelona 1-0 UC Sampdoria
"Go out and enjoy yourselves," were Johan Cruyff's last words to his orange-shirted players before they stepped out beneath the Wembley Twin Towers and made it third time lucky for the Spanish club, hitherto twice runners-up. After Andoni Zubizarreta had foiled Attilio Lombardo with a brilliant save, a tight game exploded into life in extra time as a Barcelona side featuring 21-year-old Josep Guardiola pushed for a winner. Hristo Stoichkov hit a post before Ronald Koeman's spectacular free-kick flew past Gianluca Pagliuca with eight minutes left.
2005/06: FC Barcelona 2-1 Arsenal FC
If Frank Rijkaard's men gained a numerical advantage with the 18th-minute sending-off of Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann, that seemed to count for nothing when Sol Campbell headed the Londoners in front before half-time in Paris. Future Barcelona forward Thierry Henry missed a chance to double Arsenal's lead before the introduction of Henrik Larsson turned the match, the Swede helping set up Samuel Eto'o's 76th-minute equaliser and Juliano Belletti's winning strike four minutes later.
2008/09: FC Barcelona 2-0 Manchester United FC
Guardiola crowned a superb first term in charge at Camp Nou by becoming the sixth man to lift the European Cup as both player and coach. For the Blaugrana it was sweet revenge for their semi-final loss to Manchester United 12 months earlier as they dethroned the holders comfortably in Rome. Eto'o fired them in front on ten minutes and they underlined their supremacy with a collectors' item from Lionel Messi – a towering header from the little Argentinian with 20 minutes to go.
2010/11: FC Barcelona 3-1 Manchester United FC
"We put on a show for everyone who is passionate about football and loves football," said Messi after Barcelona's 3-1 defeat of United at Wembley – the same venue where they had first scaled football's greatest continental peak. Messi was man of the match and, as in Rome two years before, he scored his team's decisive second goal nine minutes after the break, restoring the Azulgrana advantage from distance after Wayne Rooney had cancelled out Pedro Rodríguez's opener. David Villa then sealed victory.
