The higlights showed that FC Barcelona had a good first half with DAVID VILLA scoring early & even hitting the bar later. Barça Coach Guardiola then made up to 11 changes & that "experiment" allowed the Mexicans in & in a huge way. Some magnificent goals from all angles & all very acrobatic lifted the entertainment element for the spectators. However, no team likes losing & definitely not in this fashion to which Coach Guardiola acknowledged that their preparation relative to "others" is not going so well as he would like, but then added that he will solve it.
What was not mentioned that the first official Spanish Football new season clash starts on the 14th of August against Real Madrid in the 1ºst leg of the Spanish Super Cup. Although both teams say its a "minor" title a win here would give a psychological edge & put doubts into the minds of the losing Club. This loss today by FC Barcelona is just a pre-season Friendly preperation game defeat that serves to learn & fix mistakes, but the Super Cup is 10 days away & will give food for thought.
