Barcelona 3-2 Real Madrid | First Leg Spanish Super Cup | August 2012

In the First Leg of the Spanish Super Cup FC Barcelona secured a 3-2 win vs Real Madrid in a pulsating match. Real superstar Cristiano Ronaldo first headed in a corner, which Pedro levelled immediately from the kick-off. 

Lionel Messi sent in a penalty from a foul against Andres Iniesta, then Xavi slotted home a sublime third to take a two-goal lead. Angel Di Maria then pounced on keeper Victor Valdes' mistake to cut the lead to one before going into next Wednesday's second leg.
