Barcelona will be ending the year 2015 on a very high note after the Spanish club clinched its fifth trophy of the year by defeating Argentine club, River Plate in a one-sided final.
Messi scored the first before Luis Suarez added two more to make it an impressive 3 – 0 win for the Catalans.
Messi missed the semi-final against Guangzhou Evergrande because of a kidney stone issue, while Brazilian Neymar had also missed the 3-0 win over the Asian champions through injury.
Barcelona were totally dominant in a match they didn’t look like losing.
Meanwhile Japanese side Sanfrecce Hiroshima claimed third place at the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2015 after coming from behind to defeat Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande 2 -1 in the third place match.
