Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid, 2012 Spanish Super Cup: 2nd Half Underway

We're back at the Camp Nou! Aren't you excited? I can feel your excitement. It's palpable. It's beautiful. Much more beautiful than this game, anyway. The first event of note that happens is that Raul Albiol gets booked for flying into a tackle on Sergio Busquets, who is 'injured' by his studs. Mmmmmhmmm.

Anyway, that should be Albiol's second booking (or his fourth), but the referee apparently takes the first yellow card he showed him back and give it to Xabi Alonso instead. This is all highly nonsensical.

Barcelona are playing a lot of long passes forward, which seems silly as they have a cumulative height of one Sergio Ramos, and it's not really working very well. Oh, and Alexis Sanchez tries for another penalty with another dive. It doesn't work this time either.
