Live game thread for the second leg of the Supercopa de España between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid
Barcelona wasn't able to lift the Joan Gamper Trophy for the fourth consecutive time as the silverware didn't remain in Barcelona for just the third time since 1994. The early goal by Sampdoria's Roberto Soriano was all the Italians needed.
There was a win for Argentina featuring Messi and Mascherano against ten-men Germany, and also for Brazil and Dani Alves against Sweden. But there was disappointment for Afellay as Holland were beaten by neighbours Belgium in Brussels.
The pre-season finished on a high note for Tito Vilanova’s team with both David Villa and Andreu Fontàs taking part in the team’s 0-2 win over Dynamo after their long injury layoffs. Leo Messi got an early goal, whilst Ibrahim Afellay got the second.
