Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid, 2012 Spanish Super Cup: Ronaldo And Pedro Exchange Goals

Oh hi there Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid were outplayed by their hosts in the first half, but they've got the lead against Barcelona now. A fast break eventually leads to Jose Callejon winning a corner on the right side, and Mesut Ozil's inswinging delivery picks out Ronaldo perfectly, and the Portuguese bullets a header past Victor Valdes for the 1-0 lead.

How would Barca respond? By scoring, actually. Javier Mascherano sends in a through ball for a possibly offside Pedro, and a perfect first touch takes Fabio Coentrao out of the picture. The second slots past Iker Casillas to make it 1-1. That lead lasted about thirty seconds. We can't not be drawn in this game, apparently.

After the leveller, Karim Benzema attempts to restore the Madrid lead with a sidefooted volley from an angle that would make Marco van Basten blanch. It doesn't work.
