Ten man Madrid finished off by Messi

Leo Messi finished off Real Madrid last night with a beautiful goal that was eclipsed by more antics from both sides. Pepe was shown the red card after a harsh tackle on Dani Alves and Barcelona seized the opportunity. With 20 minutes still to play it was a stalemate until Pepe was sent off. In the 78th minute Messi struck via a lovely cross from Ibrahim Afellay and then later on in the 86th minute with a gracious solo run.

Mourinho was also sent off to the stands for complaining to the referee and Pinto, Barça’s number two keeper was also sent off for fighting at half time going into the tunnel.

After the match Mourinho said that it all made him sick and he would be embarrassed to win a Champions League in this fashion, reminding Guardiola of the Stamford Bridge farce which Barcelona won. As usual Pep refused to be drawn into Mourinho’s game and refused to comment.
