Minute 12: Eric Abidal tries his luck and shoots from a distance as Van der Sar stands a bit away from his goal. The ball goes over though.

Minute 11: Messi shakes off two defenders and finds Eto’o, but the latter can’t really shoot as there are too many defenders in the way.

Minute 10: The goalkeepers haven’t been active in the last minutes, as the ball mostly stays in midfield. The teams are testing each other.

Minute 5: Barcelona are the more attacking side in the opening phase. The Catalans clearly want a quick goal, which would force United to score two.

Minute 2: The free kick was caused by a Paul Scholes tackle on Lionel Messi just outside the area. One second later and it would have been a penalty.

Minute 1: A free kick for Barcelona, on the right side just outside the penalty area. Lionel Messi’s effort hits a defender.
