Aston Villa have won the UEFA Youth League after a 1-0 win over Barcelona in Arnhem, the second English winners of the reformed competition in the last three seasons (after Chelsea in 2013).

20 year-old striker Callum Robinson scored the only goal of the game in the 73rd minute as Villa matched their much-favoured Catalan opponents throughout. Villa ‘keeper Martin Latchford won the man-of-the-match award after three smart saves in the final ten minutes kept the Birmingham-based side in front.
