I think that game showed exactly where these two teams are.
Real Madrid missed a cutting edge that would certainly have won the game for them. They showed that they are capable of beating barcelona and arnt far of developing into a team that can do damage in both spain and europe.
Barcelona showed they still have quality when it matters, but clearly missed an out and out striker until Ibrahimovic came on.
As for the goal, forget Ibrahimovic. All he did was stick the ball in the net. its all about Pique
He started the move then jogged forward, and forward and forward until he was on the edge of the box (this happened because he was obviously instructed to by Pep to have 2 big men in the box when they could) When the cross came in pepe only had eyes for pique and practically forgot about the big man at the back post.
Genius is, that pique had no reason to go forward if he was a conventional centre back but he's better than that. if he hadnt, the logical place for ibrahimovic to be in when the cross came in would be Piques thus he probably wouldnt have scored
favourite quote of the night. Talking about Barcelona, "There are plenty of wonderfullly talent players and then theres Carlos Puyol.... That was meant as a compliment."
