barcelona 1-0 shakhtar donetsk

August 28, 2009
Yes, I suck.

Yes, I suck.

An extra-time goal sealed a third Super Cup for Barcelona over a resilient Shakhtar Donetsk side in Monaco.

The UEFA Cup champions held the Champions League winners for over 115 minutes before Pedro Rodriguez scored the winner. The young subtitute for a very poor Zlatan Ibrahimovic played a one-two with Lionel Messi and slotted the ball inside the bottom-right corner of the goal five minuteds before the end of the game.

Shakhtar didn’t threaten Barcelona much until Nigerian Julius Aghahowa came in as a second half substitute for the Ukrainian side when he forced a great save from Victor Valdes.

FYI. It was a boring match. Can’t believe I’ve wasted 2 hours of good sleep to watch the UEFA Super Cup. Super Cup? Sucky Cup more like.

In Barca’s defence for a rather poor performance, the Stade Louis II pitch wasn’t right for their kind of intricate passing as it was cut up badly. Oh, and they had Ibrahimovic on their side.

    Meh, well. At least you were able to feast during sun down hours whilst watching this hot mess. Not a total loss.

    Its going to be very hard for Ibrahimovic to prove the exorbitant amount of money spent on him including trading him in for Eto. I’d rather keep Eto and let him run his contract out than trading for a poor replacement. Bcos if Ibra doesn’t work out, then Barca will still have to fork out money for a striker come January!
