Match Commentary

90' FT: Not a vintage performance from Barca, but there were certainly hints of what they'll be capable of this season. Villa and Pedro were heavily involved on the flanks and the combination of Messi, Xavi and Iniesta dominated the central areas. Fabregas is off the mark with a goal and Sanchez looked very effective in his brief cameo. Porto worked hard, but the gulf in class was too big and they ultimately grew frustrated.
90' And there's the final whistle. Barcelona are the 2011 UEFA Super Cup winners and thoroughly deserving of it. Goals from Messi and Fabregas did the damage tonight, with Porto losing their heads late on to finish with nine men.
90' Iniesta almost makes it 3-0, but his drive is well saved by Helton.
