Freshly crowned European champions FC Barcelona returned Sunday afternoon from Berlin, where on Saturday they won the Club's fifth UEFA Champions League title and completed an unprecedented second treble with an exhiliarating 3–1 victory over Juventus. Just shy of 6.00pm CET, the squad's plane landed at Barcelona-El Prat Airport. The two-hour flight was filled with happiness, jokes and plenty of smiles.

Team captains Xavi Hernández and András Iniesta, along with Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi, personally ushered the European Cup off the aircraft.

After that, the new Champions got ready for this evening's parade, certain to turn the streets of Barcelona and Camp Nou a deep blaugrana.
