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: 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).

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.

Barcelona fantastically team wins 2011 UEFA Super Cup after beating nine-man FC Porto 2-0 on Friday in Monaco. It was a night to remember for both substitute Cesc Fabregas as he scored his first goal for Barcelona and Lionel Messi collected the second goal from a misplaced backpass from Porto’s Freddy Guarin. Especially, Messi was recently honored the Best Player in Europe on Thursday. The trophy brings back coach Pep Guardiola the title as the most decorated coach in Barcelona’s history with 12 trophies in just his fourth season. The European champions FC Barcelona also makes the eighth appearance in the UEFA Super Cup this year.

The Portuguese Porto first put pressure on Barcelona in all over the field on the first leg. Their compact style keeps Lionel Messi apart of other players. However, an individual mistake led to the opening goal for Barcelona just before half-time. In addition, the absence of the now transferred Falcao became the most seriously trouble for Porto when the game went on. Porto defender Rolando unluckily got the second yellow card for bringing down Messi just before the 88th minute.
