Then Messi scored from the penalty spot, taking Barcelona into the lead. Barcelona solidified its position with a close range goal from Xavi for a 3-1 score. And yet in the last 5 minutes, against the run of play, De Maria scored for Real, earning them a crucial second away goal.This means that a 1-0 win in the second leg will be enough to make them champions.After the match Barcelona defender Gerard Pique spoke of his expectations for the return game:[Gerard Pique, Barcelona Defender]:“I think it will be a very open match because after the 3-2 everyone can win.
