FC Barcelona notches up another trophy
Match report Monday, August 24th, 2009
Sunday night’s 3-0 defeat of Athletic de Bilbao gave Barça a 5-1 win on aggregate and meant that they pocketed the Spanish Supercup in spectacular fashion.
However, while Barcelona clearly dominated the match, it seemed to take a while for the team to really get into its stride. When it finally happened – after the break – things really started to happen, with Messi scoring the first goal and taking the trophy one step closer to being won.
Barça kept up the pressure, with some spectacular football taking place in front of a packed Nou Camp. And when Messi was brought down in the penalty area he was able to capitalise again, with his second goal in the 67th minute.
Still the pace kept up and five minutes later it was the turn of Bojan to score – he collected the ball, took it past the keeper and then teasingly stopped it inches from the line before tapping it over.
Some great football in what looks like it will be another stunning season for Barcelona.
1-0, Messi (min 49)
2-0, Messi (pen, min 67)
