Barcelona won the Supercopa without applying their usual philosophy. They won without being better than their rivals and without scoring. Defending a 0-0 and with their keeper as the hero. A keeper, Valdes, who won his last Supercopa with Barcelona, and showed the club that they are going to miss him. For some time now Barcelona’s triumphs in the big finals have been built on the saves of their keeper. In this final he prevented an Atleti who were tactically better than Barça. Simeone’s lot had a plan. Martino’s just the players. They won because of them. And because one of them was Valdés.
