Ronaldinho was back at the Camp Nou once again on Friday evening, and dazzled the crowd as part of a legends game with Barcelona taking on Manchester United.

While the result may not have gone Barca's way, with the Reds Devils winning 3-1, there was no doubting who was the star of the show.

Perhaps the highlight of the game was Ronaldinho leaving Jesper Blomqvist in a heap after a superb backheel nutmeg.

Ronaldinho also got the chance to link up with Rivaldo in a star-studded lineup that also included Edgar Davids and Gaizka Mendieta.

Goals from Blomqvist, Karel Poborsky and Dwight Yorke gave the visitors the win, with Frederic Dehu grabbing a late consolation.

Barca will be out for revenge in the return leg which is due to take play at Old Trafford on September 2nd.

Barcelona: Angoy (Guzman); Belletti (Dehu), Nadal (Andersson), Edmilson (Amor), Goikoetxea (Juan Carlos); Giuly (Kluivert), Davids (Estebaranz), Mendieta (Popescu), Simao (Ezquerro (Salinas)); Rivaldo (Carreras), Ronaldinho.

Man Utd: Van der Gouw (Pilkington); Brown, Johnsen (Martin), Silvestre; Poborsky (Thornley), Park, Smith, Djordjic (Beardsmore), Blomqvist (Blackmore); Yorke, Saha (Webber).
