FC Barcelona 2 – FC Porto 0 (UEFA Super Cup Highlights)

FC Barcelona won its second trophy of the 2011/12 season when it lifted the UEFA Super Cup on Friday with a 2-0 win over last year’s Europa League winners FC Porto.

Lionel Messi gave Barca a deserved 1-0 lead in the 39th minute when he collected Porto midfielder Freddy Guarin’s errant backpass and rounded hapless goalkeeper Helton before slotting the ball into an empty net.

Cesc Fabregas sealed the win for Barcelona in the 88th with when he volleyed in Messi’s well-placed chipped pass.

FC Barcelona: Valdés; Alves, Mascherano, Abidal, Adriano (min.63); Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Pedro (Cesc Fabregas, min.80), Villa (Alexis, min.61), Messi.

FC Porto: Helton; Sapunara, Rolando, Otamendi, Fucile; Souza (Fernando, min.77), Guarín, Moutinho; Hulk, Cristian Rodríguez (Varela, min.69), Kleber (Belluschi, min.77).

Goals: 1-0: Messi, min.39. 2-0: Cesc, min.88.
