Barca win UEFA Youth League

Barcelona have been crowned UEFA Youth League champions after they overcame Benfica on Monday.

The Blaugrana beat their Portuguese rivals to win the inaugural Under-19 version of the Champions League.

A solitary strike from Tarin, and two from Munir El Kaddouri – including one from the half-way line – gave Jordi Vinyols’ men the title.

The trophy comes amidst the ruling that Barcelona can’t buy players for the next two transfer windows after breaking rules regarding the purchase of under-18s.
