Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona: Supercopa Live Score, Highlights, Recap

Samuel Marsden@@samuelmarsdenFeatured ColumnistAugust 20, 2013

Neymar appeared from the bench to earn Barcelona a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa on Wednesday night.

David Villa, facing the club he left in the summer, fired the hosts into a first half lead at the Vicente Calderon, connecting with a volley that left Victor Valdes no chance.

Cesc Fabregas replaced Lionel Messi, who was carrying a slight knock, at half time, but it was the arrival of Neymar which would prove the turning point just before the hour.

Dani Alves' far post cross was met by the head of his Brazilian colleague, and it ensured the two sides head to Camp Nou for the return leg next week with all to play for.
