Spanish football giant FC Barcelona bid farewell to 2015 with the club in tremendous form and on the blink of breaking more records.

 

The Catalans won the eighth 'treble' of European Cup plus domestic league. Luis Suarez and Neymar scored second-half goals to give Barcelona a 3-1 Champions League final victory over Juventus as the Spaniards became the first team to twice win the European treble denying the old lady of Turin of winning a treble.

Luis Enrique capped his first season as Barcelona's head coach by matching Pep Guardiola's feat from the 2008/09 season when the Catalans captured the European, Spanish league and cup titles.

Barcelona crowned their 2015 campaign as  the champions of The FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2015 closed with spaniards becoming the first club to be crowned champions for a third time.

One of the greatest moments for the team in 2015 would be Xavi’s farewell; Xavi Hernandez came on in the final of Champions League for his final game in the Barcelona shirt in the dying stages as he made history with a record 151st Champions League appearance before joining Qatari side Al Sadd.

The match was the Midfielder’s final appearance for Barcelona after a 24-year relationship with the club. Xavi is the most successful player in the history of Spanish football, and was quick to thank everyone involved in making him the player he became.

An emotional Xavi was reduced to tears on stage at his farewell event after Andres Iniesta paid tribute to his 'captain, team-mate and friend.

Barcelona won five trophies in 2015, and in 2016 they can become the first team to defend the Champions League title.
