  • 1. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Andres Iniesta. A complete performance from the midfield maestro, always looked calm on the ball, distributed the ball with intelligence and accuracy. His pass for Rakitic's opening goal was perfect. Points: 9 (AP)

  • 2. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Neymar. Sealed the victory in injury time and was instrumental in the first goal, holding up play on the right before slipping Iniesta through to set up Rakitic. A constant threat on the left for Juve. Points: 9 (AP)

  • 3. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Lionel Messi. A quiet game by his own lofty standards but gave ample displays of his skill in an unselfish performance. Danced through a host of defenders on a true ``Messi-esque'' run at the end of the half. Will be disappointed not to score. Points: 8 (AP)

  • 4. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Luis Suarez. Looked dangerous throughout the game and was in the right place at the right time to convert the winner from Messi's rebound. Missed several other chances to score, however. Points: 8 (AP)

  • 5. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Jordi Alba. Combined well with Neymar and Iniesta to cause Juve major problems on the left side of the pitch. Also made a crucial header to prevent Vidal scoring in the second half. Points: 7 (Reuters)

  • 6. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Gerard Pique. An early mistake conceded a needless corner but didn't put a foot wrong thereafter. The 28-year-old also made several headed clearances in an assured performance. Points: 7 (AP)

  • 7. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Sergio Busquets (Left). Worked hard in midfield and did the simple things well. Points: 7 (AP)

  • 8. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Marc-Andre ter Stegen. The German goalkeeper was perhaps was to blame for spilling Tevez' shot and allowing Morata to equalize. Otherwise had little to do and played the ball with intelligence to his defenders. Points: 6 (AP)

  • 9. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Daniel Alves. Supposedly a right back, the Brazilian spent most of his time high up the pitch, attacking. Involved in several mighty tussles with Pogba and was lucky not to concede a penalty for dragging down the Frenchman before Suarez scored Barca's second. Points: 6 (Reuters)

  • UEFA Champions League final FC Barcelona vs Juventus FC

    10. Barcelona vs Juventus: Champions League final Top 10 list: Ivan Rakitic. Made a fine run ahead of Pogba for the opening goal. A busy game from the Croatian. Points: 6 (PTI/AP)
