Defeated FC Porto (winner of the UEFA Europa Cup) 2 goals to 0. Messi scored in the 39th minute, and Cesc Fabregas in the 88th to secure the victory.

Congrats to FC Barcelona .

Think this was already confirmed! They won the champions league, the Europa league is a tier below!

Yes; CL is above EL but this Super Cup is always important, it determines the supreme champion of European football for the season.

Put it this way, if Porto won they sure as hell wouldn't be 'the supreme champion of European football' everyone knows that's the Champions League winners. No one really remembers these games, teams are preparing for the long season ahead. It is treated as a friendly really, a bit more important but not by much. Obviously it would be nice to win it but I don't think teams will be to upset if they didn't.

Yes i know, the world doesn't pay attention to the Super Cup, but Barcelona's mission is to DOMINATE every match and that's what they do. Even if the match holds no value (exhibition, friendly matches etc.).

The super cup isn't anything important. Everyone knows Barca are the best around
