Barcelona Upset by Newly Promoted Numancia, 1-0

Primera Liga favorites Barcelona began the new season with a shock 1-0 loss against and at newly-promoted Numancia. Pep Guardiola's side dominated for long periods but were surprised by a defensive lapse after just 12 minutes, when Mario was left unmarked in the area and struck home the winning goal. It was the usual Barca line-up, with Samuel Eto'o in the centre forward position and French national Thierry Henry on the left.
