    • - Real are the winners of the 2012 Supercopa. Thanks for joining us this evening, what a Clasico!
    • 90'+3 FULL TIME! REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA... Real claim the Supercopa and the first trophy of the season thanks to away goals, as it finishes 4-4 on aggregate after two legs!
    • 90'+3 Real fans sensing glory....
    • 90'+2 Messi whistles one just wide of the post from the edge of the area!
    • 90'+2 Barca break and Montoya has a chance but Casillas stands firm!
    • 90'+1 Modric almost scores! Great shot from the Croat but it comes back off the post!
    • 90' Modric's every touch being applauded. The crowd loving his movement and fluidity, and he looks in great shape despite not having trained regularly with his new team-mates...
    • 89' Ronaldo tries a shot from a tight angle which Valdes smothers and he immediately sends the ball up the other end.
    • 88' Tello goes for goal from 25 yards but it takes a deflection for a corner. Barca throw men forward...
    • 87' Free kick for Barca now, a good delivery required... Messi whips it in, Ramos nods it behind for a corner...
    • 85' Into the final five minutes...
    • 83' Modric comes on to make his Real Madrid debut, as Ozil comes off exhausted.
    • 82' Change for each team. Higuain makes way for Benzema for Real Madrid, and Pedro comes off for Tello for Barcelona...
    • 80' HIGUAIN HITS THE POST! The Real Madrid man races through, curls the ball past Valdes but hits the right post... Chance to put the game and tie to bed, but no!
    • 79' Di Maria makes way for Callejon as Jose Mourinho makes a change...
    • 78' Mistakes starting to creep in now and Barca in the ascendancy... Song announces his arrival with a cruncher on Ozil that leaves the German in a heap.
    • 76' CHANCE FOR BARCELONA! Alba runs in off the left and takes the ball past Casillas, but Ramos manages to cut the Barca man out!!
    • 75' Song comes on for Busquets as the former Arsenal man makes his Barcelona bow...
    • 73' Ramos collects a yellow card, as the card count reaches six for the evening...
    • 71' Alonso takes Messi out of it off the ball, the ref sees it but lets play roll on as Barca are attacking and Real then counter...
    • 70' Modric has been sighted warming up on the sidelines...
    • 68' SAVE FROM VALDES! Khedira goes on a run and draws a great save from the Barca keeper! The chances keep flowing at both ends...
    • 65' Pedro gets in down the right and tries to nutmeg Casillas at his near post, but the keeper is well aware. Barca just starting to pick a few holes...
    • 63' Khedira booked for a late challenge on Messi.
    • 62' GREAT SAVE FROM CASILLAS, GREAT PLAY FROM BARCELONA! Mascherano picks Pedro's perfectly-timed run out with a great long ball over the top, and a fantastic first touch brings it under control for a shot. Casillas is alert and pulls off a superb save...
    • 60' An hour into the game and the pace of things has calmed considerably. Still a real sense that anything could happen here however...
    • 59' Real win the ball back and break down the left, Ronaldo fires a low ball in but Pique launches it clear.
    • 57' Barca continuing to thread the passes together, Real Madrid fans whistling their disapproval...
    • 55' Barca starting to string some passes together on the halfway line, in true Barca style. Can they start making some inroads though?
    • 54' Di Maria tries to find Ronaldo at the far post but the delivery is overhit.
    • 53' Alba makes a super run down the left but Mascherano's pass is poor. When that clicks, Alba will be a real threat down that flank...
    • 51' Barca a little more lively than they were in the first half. Well, they needed to be.
    • 50' Booking for Pique for a pretty clear handball...
    • 49' Di Maria advances at pace after another poor pass in midfield from Barca hands possession cheaply to Real...
    • 47' Ronaldo pulls Pedro down with a rather comical wrap around the face!
    • 46' Tell you what, the stadium announcer has been kept busy tonight. Seems like there's a call out for a parent of a lost child every five minutes...
    • 22:34 KICK OFF! We're back on at the Bernabeu...
    • 45'+2 HALF TIME! Real Madrid 2-1 Barcelona at the interval. Goals, a red card, sublime play, just another Clasico... I'm going to lie down for 15 minutes, see you for the second half shortly!
    • 45'+2 Chance for Higuain, but he shoots wide! The Argentine runs wide right, cuts inside and tries to curl the ball inside the left post but is off target...
    • 45'+2 RONALDO SO CLOSE!!! He lets rip with a stunning strike from all of 35 yards and it shaves the outside of the right post. Valdes nowhere near...
    • 45'+1 Alba breaks in off the left but can't quite get in on goal. Barca pushing...
    • 45' GOAL FOR BARCELONA! My word! What a free kick from Messi. Incredible strike from the dead ball. Curls it around the outside of the wall and inside the left post. Brilliant! REAL MADRID 2-1 BARCELONA, 4-4 on aggregate...
    • 44' Barcelona retaining possession in the middle for a couple of minutes, and Alonso gives away a free kick about 30 yards out and very central. Can Barca make anything of this just before the teams go in for half time?
    • 42' Iniesta breezes past a challenge and unleashes a shot, which is deflected behind for a corner... Barcelona just starting to find a little something inside the final five minutes of this first half...
    • 41' Messi pounces on a loose ball and tries to feed Alba in, but Pepe holds him off brilliantly...
    • 39' Scary to imagine how much more destructive Real Madrid could be with Luka Modric in the starting XI...
    • 38' Yellow card for Arbeloa, who I think had a bit of off-the-ball fun with Alba...
    • 37' Flash from Barcelona... Iniesta whips a pacey ball across the face of goal and substitute Montoya is not far off making contact with that!
    • 36' Iniesta sets off from midfield but is stopped short. Barca struggling to play their keep-ball game with only 10 men...
    • 34' Totally breathless stuff at the Bernabeu... Hard to even keep up. Typing so fast the old fingertips are nearly worn down, not sure I can keep this up for the full 90 minutes!!
    • 33' GREAT CHALLENGE FROM MASCHERANO TO DENY HIGUAIN! Ronaldo cuts Barca's defence in half with a superb pass, Higuain bears down on goal and looks set to score before an excellently-timed sliding tackle from Mascherano saves the day!
    • 32' Change for Barcelona, as Tito Vilanova throws Montoya on in place of Alexis...
    • 30' SAVE VALDES!! So hard to keep up!! Marcelo cuts the ball back for Khedira who lashes a volley straight at Valdes which the Barca keeper manages to hold on! Real absolutely dominating Barcelona here, who look completely lost...
    • 29' Not even half an hour in and we've had two goals and a red card!
    • 28' RED CARD!!!! BARCELONA DOWN TO 10 MEN!!! Adriano lunges in on Ronaldo to deny the Portuguese going through one on one. Last man, and he's gone!
    • 26' Pepe gets caught by Messi and the Barca man goes in high and late. Free kick, no doubt, and he's lucky to get away with that without a booking. The Real fans sing some choice words to the Argentine star....
    • 25' Alonso pounds a free kick in from the left and Valdes has to come and punch clear!
    • 24' GOAL DISALLOWED... It's not too clear why. A free kick comes in and it's nodded past Valdes by Pepe, but whether it's disallowed for offside or a foul is unclear. Nobody looked off so it must have been for a push. Wasn't obvious... Barcelona all over the shop here, Real dominant.
    • 23' Really uncharacteristic stuff from Barcelona, who are losing possession regularly...
    • 22' SAVE VALDES! Higuain again gets through and is denied by the Barca keeper's feet. Real tearing through Barca like warm bread!
    • 21' Pepe gets booked. He brings down Pedro, but the booking is more for the verbal tirade that follows after the whistle is blown... This really is getting tasty!
    • 20' Well well well, 2-0 on the night, 4-3 on aggregate, all in favour of Real Madrid. Ronaldo takes the ball past Pique with an outrageous backheeled flick over the head, races onto the ball, takes a poor first touch but managed to steady himself before firing low past Valdes! Just brilliant!
    • 19' GOAL FOR REAL MADRID! Incredible scenes! Ronaldo makes it 2-0!!
    • 17' Little bit of off-the-ball goes on in midfield as Barca win a free kick.
    • 15' Real really pressing hard and Xavi loses possession inside his own half... Marcelo hammers a drilled cross-cum-shot across the face of goal.
    • 13' Mascherano booked! A poor evening rolls on for the Barca man who is completely stripped for pace again by Di Maria. The body check draws a yellow card... Thin ice, one might say, for the rest of the game. To be honest Di Maria went down like an extra in Swan Lake. It was a foul nevertheless...
    • 12' Someone needs to have a word with Alexis. The guy is diving all over the place! Pepe gets animated at the Barca forward as he goes down way too easily under Ramos' challenge. Tut tut tut...
    • 11' GOAL FOR REAL MADRID! Higuain is gifted the opener by Mascherano who completely misses the ball! A hit and hope ball forward from Pepe is hacked at unsuccessfully by Mascherano, and Higuain races through and tucks the ball past Valdes. REAL 1-0 BARCELONA! Game on!
    • 10' Barca try and break through but Adriano's pass down the right for Alexis just has a touch too much on it...
    • 9' Barcelona just being pinned back in the early stages by Real, but they're so capable of turning defence into attack...
    • 7' SAVE VALDES! Higuain is put through one on one with the keeper as Mascherano and Pique are cut in half by a great through ball. Good chance, saved....
    • 6' Xavi puts it in but Ramos heads clear and Real try and mount a quick counter break...
    • 5' First corner of the game goes to Barcelona...
    • 4' Pedro fires in a cross from the left after Iniesta feeds him down the left. Alexis goes down next to Marcelo at the far post, only because he couldn't get anywhere near the ball. The ref has a word. Tempers heating up already!
    • 3' Barca knock it around at the back with Madrid pressing hard. First real foray forward comes for the away side, as Pedro tries to get into the area but is tackled.
    • 1' A last-minute change in the Barca line-up... Jordi Alba has replaced Dani Alves after the Brazilian felt a twinge in his left leg prior to kick off.
    • 21:31 KICK OFF! We're underway... Real Madrid kick off.
    • 21:25 Five minutes to kick off now...
    • 21:20 If Barcelona win the Supercopa this evening then Xavi will become the player who has held the trophy the most times. He's won all five finals he's played in before for the club.
    • 21:15 Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova: "If we had not won in two or three games and we were playing at home, we would try to change the dynamic as quickly as possible. But in themselves Madrid are already dangerous with the number of players they have, and in the Bernabeu. It is impossible to think about going to Madrid and having an easy game. They are very good. You just have to look at what they did last year."
    • 21:11 Mourinho referring there to his side's 2-1 defeat to Getafe in La Liga on Sunday...
    • 21:10 Here's what Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho had to say in the lead-up to the game yesterday: "Win the Super Cup, not win the Super Cup. Beat Barca, not beat Barca. None of that is important to me right now. My priority right now is to know whether the attitude we had against Getafe was a chance happening or whether it's a situation that has had consequences on the psychological profile of some players. That for me is the fundamental thing for tomorrow."
    • 21:05 Luka Modric is on the bench for Real, having missed pre-season and the start of the Liga campaign after completing his move from Tottenham late. For Barca, Alex Song also starts this one in the dugout...
    • 21:00 No Carles Puyol for Barca then as the club captain doesn't even make the bench for the visitors. He's out with a fractured cheekbone.
    • 20:55 Team news! The starting line-ups are in... REAL MADRID: Casillas, Arbeloa, Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Khedira, Alonso, Di Maria, Ozil, Ronaldo, Higuain... BARCELONA: Valdes, Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Adriano, Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro, Alexis, Messi...
    • 20:50 This one comes at you from the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, where home side Real carry a 3-2 deficit from the first leg at Camp Nou one week ago. Can they overturn it? We'll be one step closer to finding out when the game gets underway in around 40 minutes...
    • 20:45 Good evening one and all, and welcome to LIVE coverage of the second - deciding - leg of Real Madrid and Barcelona's Supercopa encounter. Kick off is at 21:30 UK time...

  1. #$%$ BARCA & MESSI

    From David, on Sun 6 Jan 21:17
  2. Real up the pace. You guys could do better more things­ with the ball and make more goals. You have a wonderful­ coach, we all in Nigeria follow him. But you guys the­ players need to put in your very best in attacking,­ winning balls back and making good passes for plenty of­ assist to net in the goals. Get the goals first thru­ assist b4 trying to increase your tally. We are not at­ war. There should be unity amongst players to achieve­ this feat. Jose wants the best from you guys and we­ the fans are really behind you. Take this game and­ other games to the next level. Your rival ain't­ doing magic it's just the pace in which they take­ on all the games. You guys can do better than them. ­ So go out there and do the winning for hot tram and­ fans. Like seeing you guys in your white shirt and­ shorts. Nzeribe leo(from port Harcourt ,Nigeria)danke­ chao, gracias, amigo ,

    From nzeribe, on Tue 6 Nov 6:40
  3. Does anybody know what time the game is gonna kick off­ in German Time.Sorry i am a visitor in Germany and do­ not know the time w.r.t GMT

    From Anthoni, on Thu 30 Aug 4:45
  11. Song said he is in Barca to win everything just like­ tonight. By now, he should have known that trophies­ are not free and automatic. You have to fight for it. ­ He will later know what qualities madrid is made of -­ Ronaldo, Higuain, benzenma, Di Maria, Modric, Ozil,­ Marcelo, Khedira, etc. Madrid will kill Barca this­ season

    From Sere, on Thu 30 Aug 3:46
  12. With REAL MADRID'S Supremacy, I think the case is­ now settled. RONALDO is now the EUROPEAN FOOTBALLER OF­ THE YEAR 2012!

    From MouWins, on Thu 30 Aug 1:20
  13. As this is now no longer about football, and youngest­ one now home, I am going to bed. Until next time. ­ Play nice, and no need for the mum stuff Amir.......not­ good to bring us mums into it!!

    From Amir, on Thu 30 Aug 0:13
  18. @KING: Well said. They should support their Jihad­ United.

    From MouWins, on Thu 30 Aug 0:12
  19. Thank you for that, many men have had to do just that­ on the subject of football. Can I ask though, or­ perhaps suggest that you stick to the same, all the­ stereotyping stuff just makes you look stupid when I am­ sure there is more to you than that, plus it gives the­ rest of us from the UK a bad name............see now­ you can tell I am a woman

    From Laura, on Thu 30 Aug 0:10
