European Super Cup - Barcelona vs. Porto

Post by fcb on Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:37 pm

Starts in a few mins. Starting lineups:

Valdés
Alves, Mascherano, Abidal, Adriano
Xavi, Keita, Iniesta
Pedro, Messi, Villa

Keita as DM Doh


Helton
Sapunaru, Rolando, Otamendi, Fucile
Guarín, Souza, Moutinho
Cebolla Rodríguez, Kleber, Hulk


Should be a comfortable win for Barça, Porto have lost Falcao and also left out Chelsea target Pereira.

P.S.: Shouldn't this thread be in the European Cups section?

The pitch is terrible.

Porto doing well so far, preventing Barça from building from the back.

Pretty solid defending as a team by Porto and some early aggressive pressing.

Hulk pretty close!

Barca look a bit clueless and rather vulnerable at the back so far.

He is right tho, very soft free kick for Porto. But wasted by Hulk anyway.

Pedro and Messi earlier with some good chances. Decent game so far but both teams still playing in 2nd or 3rd gear.

Barca hardly creating any chances so far, Porto still rather comfortable and with the occasional promising push forward.

Game has settled down into the usual pattern of Barça possession - they're attacking but so far Porto are holding firm and Helton hasn't had to make too many saves.

Good move down the left from Adriano and Helton saves Xavi's shot after the cutback.

Bad luck Porto. Mistake in posession allows Messi to score.

What a huge mistake by a Porto player, direct assist to Messi, who scores. Smile

Now Abidal with a mistake, Kleber should have been through, instead he bizarrely dithers, seems to look across at the linesman...and this allows Mascehrano to get across and make the clearing tackle.

1-0 HT

Despite the lead which was a real gift, not a convincing match by Barca so far IMHO. Should still win the match comfortably though, as scoring first helps, of course.

Like they dont care at all, or a certain win for us attitude.
Even Abidal looks like he just started to play football. No passion at all in the game.

I think the attitude is ok, but yes, the intensity is a bit lacking. It's disappointing how often they are going back to Valdes. Porto are doing well defensively though, credit to them, the whole team is working hard, even the strikers.

Good chance for Porto, close by Moutinho. Porto increasing the pressure on Barca.

Great defending by Keita there. Alves' mistake could have been costly.

Hmm...good block by Helton there. But it looked like hand ball by Barca in their own box prior to that chance.

Messi scores an offside goal that was at least a pretty close call.

Great 'no look' through ball by Iniesta, pretty close.
