Round 1: Barcelona beat Espanyol

June 5, 2007

Barcelona beat Espanyol tonight to win the Copa de Catalunya. With the full time score 1-1 the match went straight to penalties, where Barcelona pipped their local rival 5-4. The team was very much reduced, with many B team and youth players and so certainly not at full strength. Ronaldinho won’t be playing on Saturday due to the red card suspension he received against Getafe, but psychologically this must be an important victory ahead of Saturday night.
