Beautiful goal by Adriano Correia who was panned just last week for that mindless challenge on Cristiano Ronaldo earning him a red card. Ten man Barca went on to lose the Spanish Super Cup on Real’s away goal advantage.
But the story is the plummeting form and minutes of Cesc Fabregas under Tito Vilanova. Against Valencia, he missed two fairly open chances. His former Arsenal team mate, Alex Song made his debut and managed to meet the high expectations of the Catalunyans playing all 90+ minutes.
