Barcelona 2-0 Porto Highlights

24-year-old midfielder Cesc Fabregas scored a brilliant volley to keep Barcelona's non-stop victory parade going with a UEFA Super Cup triumph over Porto.

Two official games, two trophies for Cesc, who won just one FA Cup and one Charity Shield in all his eight years with Arsenal.

Lionel Messi’s first goal was splendid and Fabregas’ second was expertly taken, and brilliantly made by Messi.

Barcelona vs Porto Lineups :

Barcelona: Victor Valdes, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Eric Abidal, Adriano (Sergio Busquets, 63), Xavi Hernandez, Seydou Keita, Andres Iniesta, Pedro Rodriguez (Cesc Fabregas, 80), Lionel Messi, David Villa (Alexis Sanchez, 61).

FC Porto: Helton, Cristian Sapunaru, Rolando, Nicolas Otamendi, Jorge Fucile, Freddy Guarin, Joao Moutinho, Souza (Fernando, 77), Cristian Rodriguez (Silvestre Varela, 69), Hulk, Kleber (Fernando Belluschi, 77).

 

Barcelona and Porto met each other in UEFA Super Cup 2011 final at the Stade Louis II in Monaco on Friday 26 August 2011. This is the 14th UEFA Super Cup since the event was changed from a two-legged affair to a one-off game in Monaco.

Barcelona vs Porto highlights :

Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez had seen a 25-yard shot tipped over before Messi's goal came six minutes before the interval when Fredy Guarín played a catastrophic pass straight into the Argentinian forward’s path. Messi could hardly believe his luck when the ball landed at his feet, and he strolled around Porto keeper Helton for an accurate finish.
Fabregas eventually arrived with 10 minutes remaining, and was promptly felled by Guarin. The former Arsenal midfielder was again used in a more attacking role, pushing on to support Lionel Messi and Alexis Sanchez.
Porto cynically tried to stop Barcelona, and Rolando departed for two yellow cards, both fouls on Messi.
Before Guarin also departed, for a straight-red offence on Javier Mascherano, Barcelona had added a second, a thrilling moment for Fabregas. When Messi crossed from the right, Fabregas chested the ball down and finished with a neat volley.
