Spanish Supercup: Bilbao 1-2 Barcelona

Table of Contents
Barcelona hit back from a half-time deficit to win 2-1 at Athletic Bilbao in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup on Sunday.

Oscar de Marcos gave hosts the lead with the last kick of the first half as his deflected effort beat Víctor Valdés, who had already gone down in anticipation.

Barcelona drew level in the 58th minute when Seydou Keita's cross beat everyone before reaching Pedro at the far post, and he cleverly feigned to shoot before sliding the ball inside to Xavi, who coolly slotted into the net.

The same two Barça players combined to put their side ahead ten minutes later with Xavi returning the favor with a short lead to Pedro, who sliced a long shot beyond goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz.
