Barcelona won their first Youth League final since 2014 on Monday as they Chelsea 3-0 in a comfortable victory over the Blues in Nyon.

The opening goal was pretty special as Barcelona played it out from the back before finding Abel Ruiz who teed up Alejandro Marques to head home just past the half hour mark.

Check the goal out below:

Marques grabbed his second of the game just after half-time. He stole possession from Marc Guehi before keeping his composure to fire home.

Ruiz then secured the win late on as he rifled home Barcelona’s third of the game to complete the win.

It’s been a pretty good few days for Barcelona so far. The Copa del Rey on Saturday, the 2018 UEFA Youth League on Monday and potentially La Liga at the weekend.
