JimmyGuitaristLine-ups after 20 minutes in the match. Barcelona started with there usual formation, but after about 20 minutes, Guardiola moved to the line-up I put up. He moved Alves to right-wing, Puyol to right-back and Busquets to left-centre-back but usually moved to his usual defensive-mid role when Barca were in-possession. Puyol nullified Ronaldo, & plus with the extra help of Alves bombing up-&-down the right.
Madrid pressed excellently in most of the first half and that's how they got there first goal, but I personally think that was just a dreadful pass from Valdes. He had other options, but chose a pass which wasn't even an option. As ZonalMarking says though, A tactical victory for Guardiola.


nvrFabregas was just too ineffective before the tactical change. Real Madrid dominated the midfield and Fabregas looked helpless.
