Spanish Supercopa / Matchday 1
King Fahd International Stadium / 12.01.2022
BARCELONA TAKE ON REAL MADRID IN SUPERCOPA DE ESPANA - FERRAN TORRES STARTS
End of E.T 2nd Half
COURTOIS CLAIMS AND IT'S ALL OVER
Barca come back twice but can't come back again. They grew into the game but didn't have quite enough.
REAL FLUFF ANOTHER BREAK
Rodrygo puts it wide when it should have been beyond doubt.
DEMBELE CAN'T FINISH WITH THE OVERHEAD
He just misses the spectacular.
FINAL FEW MOMENTS
Getting desperate now for Xavi's men.
BENZEMA HEADS FOR THE CORNER
The experienced France striker looks to eat some seconds at the corner flag. Up the other end, Militao eats some more seconds after being fouled in his own box.
REAL MADRID BREAK AGAIN
The chance evaporates as Camavinga's ball is poor. With all this practice on the break, that should have been a fourth.
FATI TAKES A DIVE
He is toppled in the box, but fairly as he loses the ball.
Fresh legs in midfield.
REAL MADRID CHANGE
Vinicius Jr comes off.
ABDE LOOKING THREATENING
He looks a handful. A young player with the freedom to take people on is just so thrilling.
Vinicius goes down with cramp to eat up some seconds. Then hops up as the game continues.
CASEMIRO WITH A CLEAR CHANCE
The defence-minded player looks shocked to find himself so advanced and his shot is tame.
Just 15 minutes for Barca to force penalties.
End of E.T 1st Half
END TO END AT THE END OF EXTRA TIME
Real Madrid should extend their lead but fluff their lines. Barca break. Then Madrid break back. The ref has seen enough and blows up.
FATI DANCES THROUGH
The number 10 has been brilliant since coming on. His quick feet make it through a couple of challenges before Real Madrid smother.
BUSQUETS FORCES THE SAVE
Courtois does well to parry a drive from Busquets, then does even better to get to his feet to deny Dembele.
GOAL! BARCELONA 2 - REAL MADRID 3
What a goal that was. The break has been on all evening and Madrid pour forward with a four on two. A clever dummy from Vinicius drops two defenders and the ball rolls to Valverde who slots home.
ABDE SHOULD SCORE
He finds himself with a free header at the back post but watches his effort loop over.
DEMBELE FORCING THE ISSUE
Dembele grabs the ball after being toppled over and is judged to have handballed it. He looks dangerous already.
REAL MADRID MAKE A CHANGE
