Madrid 2 Vs 2 Barcelona

Madrid and Barcelona shared 4 goals in a thrilling 1st leg of the Spanish Supercopa.

Having hogged the headlines for a number of bad-tempered clashes last season, the 2 played out a game refreshingly void of late challenges and mass-brawls.

Another surprise saw Madrid adopt the character of the cultivated passing side out of the 2, opening the scoring through Ozil and then levelling through Xabi Alonso.

In between times, Barca occupied the smash-and-grab style frequently used by Real Madrid last season, with David Villa and Lionel Messi netting.

Josep Guardiola, who continues unbeaten as manager in the Santiago Bernabeu, remained cautious over Wednesday's 2nd leg. "We desire that with our crowd we'll have an advantage," he told. "I am satisfied with our efforts this night, but they were dangerous.

"We have had a limited time together with some players only back training a matter of days. Alves, Abidal and Adriano kept us in it at times so I'm particularly pleased with them."

Madrid captain Casillas was delighted with Madrid's performance. "We have played good, passed the ball around and we are happy, little by little we are getting there, we will go to Barcelona to try and win the trophy," he stated.
