After slumping to a disappointing loss in the final of the Challenge Trophy, manager Batigol was left with a choice after a tight game. Continue and hope for a 50/50 chance, or change something and take the risk that it might just work. Bayern, who had been the victors, would be their opponents once again!
Batigol chose to change it up slightly and although Barcelona conceded possession to Bayern this time around, they carved out better chances and made the most of them, scoring two goals, a thumping header from Falcao, which was followed by a pot shot from Gareth Bale, all of which meant they were cruising at half time. A reply from Dante on the hour mark brought a tense finish, but Barca held out to lift the European Super Cup!
The same week however, celebrations bubbled over into their DC Final game with Inter, and they were thumped 3-0!! With little to no chance of a comeback, Barca were left to concentrate on sewing up the league title, which was mathematically confirmed in an exciting 4-3 win at Tottenham. In 3 weeks time, there will be celebrations once again for the double!
Barca will not be relaxing though, as they still have the chance to finish the league season unbeaten!
