Barça 2-2 Porto Alegre (FCB win 4-2 on penalties) (MATCH REPORT and VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS)

FC Barcelona qualified for the Audi Cup final in Munich after beating Internacional de Porto Alegre 2-2, then 4-2 on penalties.

The Blaugranas were well led by Thiago and Iniesta during the first half, who were in control of the possession and made the Brazilian midfielders run behind the ball in classic FCB style. Mr Alcantara managed to convert a brilliant set piece cleverly masterminded by Pep Guardiola during training.

The second half was pretty strange, with Pinto being terribly clumsy in several occasions, allowing Porto Alegre to score 2 easy goals thanks to careless defending mistakes. Dos Santos scored but the final score was only 2-2.

FC Barcelona then won on penalties, goals by Villa, Jonathan dos Santos, Carmona and Armando.

Still early days, but yet another draw for Barça in this pre-season.

    Dos Santos had a great game aswell, actually all of our youngsters delivered. Only disappointment was Pinto

  8. Tom Rogers26.7.11

    Pinto is one of the worst goalkeepe in professional football i`ve ever seen in the last years. I don`t know why Barca took this loser as their second goalkeeper.

  9. Drago Robert Meze27.7.11

    In fairness to Pinto, I have seen him keep very well in previous games when he has filled in for VV. However, his performance in this game leaves one wondering about the quality of the Barca B goalkeepers. Lets hope this effort was just an aberration.
