The rout began after just a few seconds after Lieke Martens hit the bar and Chelsea failed to clear, with the unfortunate Melanie Leupolz getting the last touch.
And it was the Germany international who gave away the penalty to allow Alexia to double Barca’s lead in the 14th minute.
Barca were cruising goal from Aitana Bonmati and a spectacular fourth before the break, Martens flew down the left, nutmegged Millie Bright and put the ball on a plate for Caroline Graham Hansen to tap home.
Barca continued to threaten and had the ball in the back of the net again late on through substitute Asisat Oshoala but saw it disallowed for offside.
It didn’t matter though because moments later the final whistle blew and Barca were crowned European champions for the very first time.
PLAYER OF THE MATCH – Alexia (Barcelona)
