Barcelona suffer defeat in the Spanish Super Cup Final, losing 3-2 to Athletic Club, in really poor fashion. Barça found themselves in front twice, but failed to hold on to both leads, giving up sloppy goals, and defending poorly. By the end of extra time, Athletic had the lead, and Lionel Messi was sent off. Another tragic evening for Barcelona.
This was yet another devastating night for us Barcelona fans, as in such an important match, with a trophy on the line, we collapsed. Barça never really got going, despite Griezmann’s sharp finishing, and were punished for their sloppy performance and abysmal defending in particular from Jordi Alba and Clément Lenglet.
We must now pick ourselves up again, fight for the Copa Del Rey and wait for a new President. But tonight was a big opportunity missed for this Barcelona side, and yet again we are left hurting.
