Barcelona through to Clubs World Cup finalDecember 17, 2009
FC Barcelona are through to the final of FIFA’s Clubs World Cup after defeating Mexico’s Atlante FC in Abu Dhabi yesterday.
In what seems to be standard pattern, Barça went one goal down early on, but bounced back in the 35th minute when Busquets scored. It had been unclear as to Leo Messi would actually play thanks to an ankle injury sustained against Dynamo Kiev. However, as usual he shone and his moment came 10 minutes into the second half; and Pedro sealed the victory 12 minutes later.
The final will be played against Estudiantes on Saturday at 17:00 CET.
0-1, Rojas (min 4)
1-1, Busquets (min 35)
2-1, Messi (55)
3-1, Pedro (min 67)
