Barcelona wins Super Cup

Share |

Ronaldinho's team, who claimed a sparkling 3-0 win in the first leg in Seville last weekend, looked on course for another victory when african striker Samuel Eto'o put them ahead with a trademark opportunist strike on 15 minutes.

But King's Cup winners Betis, who decided to field a shadow side ahead of next week's Champions League qualifier against AS Monaco, shocked Barca crowd when reserve striker Dani grabbed two goals in the space of five first-half minutes.

Barca had the better of the play after the break but, despite several dynamic attacking moves involving Ronaldinho and Eto'o, they were unable to find a way past an inspired Pedro Contreras in the Betis goal. The rare home defeat took the shine off the Catalans' sixth victory in the Super Cup.

I'm trying to do a good deed, using the "next blog" button, to identify Blogger blogs that have been hit by the recent rash of "comment spam". The previous comment is an example.

To avoid this, you can change your Blogger comment settings to require "word verification". This will make it impossible for the automated spambots to leave comments (which typically link to their sites selling various things).

Here's a post by a real human on how to change the settings.
