Well Real Madrid will be feeling in a happier mood now. They're 2-0 up and leading 4-3 in the Spanish Super Cup after yet another defensive mistake from Barcelona. The hosts are playing well, smothering the Catalans' attacks and then hitting them incredibly hard on the counterattack, and they're reaping their rewards.
Another long ball over the top sees Cristiano Ronaldo isolated against Gerard Pique, and it looked as though the big defender would be able to get there first. But a slight deflection gave Ronaldo a chance, and he took it brilliantly, popping the ball way into the air with a backheel and racing past Pique. The Portuguese's second touch wasn't particularly great, which allowed Victor Valdes to get set, but the goalkeeper couldn't stop the blistering shot, and it was 2-0.
Then Gonzalo Higuain managed to get through the defence again, and Valdes is forced into yet another save. Good grief, Barcelona are getting torn apart here.
