Excellent play by Barcelona, who work the ball out wide before cutting back into the area for Lionel Messi. The Argentine forward should shoot first time, but doesn't, leaving Pepe with just enough time to nick it off his boots ten yards away from Iker Casillas' goal. The attack continues, however, but Sergio Busquets eventually wastes it with a very poor pass to Xavi on the right, and eventually the hosts can hack clear.
Substitute Emmanuel Adebayor, meanwhile, is already having a positive effect for the home team, winning an aerial ball int he middle of the pitch before being bundled over by Javier Mascherano. Xabi Alonso tried to catch Victor Valdes off his line with a long range shot, but completely misses, and for some reason Wolfgang Stark doesn't give the hosts a free kick after all of that. How strange.
