Real Madrid - Barça >> Match Report


FC Barcelona managed to get a good 2-2 result from the Barnabeu stadium in the away match of the 2011/12 Spanish Supercopa.

I didn't like the first half at all, with Barça unable to control the ball as they have over the last few seasons. Pep Guardiola left Xavi, Busquets and Pique on the bench which didn't help in terms of possession. As a result, Ozil scored pretty early in the game.

Despite this fact though, the team kept fighting well and got their reward: David Villa scored a cracking goal from outside the area, Leo Messi dribbled Pepe The Psycho and friends to get our second before the halftime break.

The second half started better, with Thiago and Keita wanting the ball a bit more and players like Iniesta applying more sense in midfield.

Real Madrid, as usual, didn't give up and Xabi Alonso got the second goal for Los Blancos.

All in all, a good result for the return match at the Camp Nou.

REAL MADRID: THE BLAUGRANA FANS WILL PUSH OUR TEAM TO WIN THE TROPHY, WE CAN AND WILL WIN THIS SUPERCOPA!!!!!

    Real played well but half of our players were doubtful to even play so a draw 2-2 will be good we will be prepared for a rematch. Just wanted to say that psycho pepe should have been sent off

  13. The first game of the season is always tough, and now it was at the bear pit of Bernabeu. Keita's not up to the task, Adriano was -- well, and the match fitness was not top class, but the new kid Sanchez worked his butt off and Masche was AWESOME! ♥ and he only got back from his holiday on MONDAY.

    Madrid were a better syd since they managd 2 disrupt our play bt mo so it was our unecesarily givin away possesion n a jittery unfamiliar defence than madrid's brilliance. We stil suck at defendin set pieces. Since we were away n 4 most playrz 1st game playin 2getha ths seasn i thnk we luk alright

  16. And Madrid played ANTI-FOOTBALL like Uruguay in the Copa America. Dirty players! Pepe should have gotten TWO red cards. How come he was still on the pitch at the end of the game?!

    Marcelo's foul on Pedro should have resulted in a penalty! And both Pepe and Ramos really should have ATLEAST been booked for their aweful tackles (on Alves and Pedro, respectively)! But it's ok. Villa's superb strike brought us back into the game, and Messi played like Messi. :)

    Ive definitely seen us play better but we are still in preparation mode. A good result with our boys only occasionally showing their class but always competing. Valdes made some good saves and Sanchez looked encouraging. A step in the right direction.

    Barca was too weak without Xavi in first 11...could not push them,had a lot of mistakes in defence. The only thing i appreciate is the result and Sanchez debute. He was really good... I like his style ...it's close too Big Ronaldo's style ...and he works a lot. He'll become a great player . Let's wait the second match ..i bet it will be an other game , other attitude...seriousness and courage, that's what we need today.

    well first i ave notice that Sanchez has alot to offer Barca
    secondly keitha cannot manage the DM position
    thirdly Messi jus got bac and lots fantastic.
    fourthly Thiago can hold is own in the mid for us (barca)
    fifth we kept playing our way even thou madrid tried very hard to kill our tempo..
    six Xavi is crucial to our midfield area

    I would like to say that Barca has made a wonderful purchase of Alexis Sánchez. He is a wonderful player and i wish him all the best he is really good and only played one game with Barca he will get used to the way we play and will be amazing

Why the Barcelona board should be concerned about the #BartomeuOut Twitter campaign

Josep Maria Bartomeu is under huge scrutiny in recent times, and deservedly so. The humiliating 5-1 aggregate defeat against Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa was a terrible blow for Barca's morale but to think the club's problems are all a direct result of a poor result during preseason is far too simplistic.

Bartomeu, together with his predecessor and close friend Sandro Rosell, has brought Barcelona into a disheartening situation which not even the most pessimistic fans could have possibly predicted five years ago. Years of neglecting La Masia, countless signings that have struggled to make the starting lineup and the inability to connect with club members are only some of the reasons why the social media campaigns #BartomeuOut and #BartomeuDimiteYa have become a worldwide trend that show how concerning the current situation is.

We talked about the Bartomeu situation in much more depth, as well as El Clasico, Luis Suarez, Paulinho, Samper and Betis in our Episode 25 of …

Why Sergio Busquets' criticism of the Barcelona board is fully justified

Sergio Busquets is a player who prefers to stay away from the spotlight and do his talking on the pitch, ensuring Barca's engine continues to tick with his vision, positioning and charisma. However, in the rare occasions in which he decides to speak to the world's media, his words are loud and clear.

Following Barca's frustrating home defeat (1-3) against Real Madrid in the first leg of the SuperCopa, Busquets did not hesitate to demand much-needed new signings in order to reinforce the Blaugrana squad after the unexpected departure of Neymar:

"We try to improve the team regardless of the result of the Super Cup match. Those who come will be welcome. After Neymar's departure, we know that we need mostly offensive players, but we need to improve in all positions and aspects. With Neymar's departure evidently the team lost an attacking level, because you realise the footballer that is Neymar, there everyone will agree. About that we have Messi-dependence, in the…

Signing Paulinho for €40M is utter madness from Barcelona

Barcelona have signed Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande after paying €40 million for his transfer, as speculated in his release clause, according to multiple sources.

The Brazilian international midfielder, who would sign a four-year deal worth a reported €5M per season, would have completed a very unusual career path after being rejected by Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League, then coming back to form in the Chinese Super League before landing at the Camp Nou at 29 years of age.

To say the signing of Paulinho is puzzling is a huge understatement. While it is disappointing to see the current Barcelona board struggling to bring world-class talent such as Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele to the Camp Nou, it is in fact much worse to see them having to pay the release clause of a player that has not been linked with any other major club in recent times.

Sure, it is clear that Paulinho has been a major contributor to the current leaders of the Chinese Super League but, h…
