Barcelona legends started well with Ronaldinho at the heart of most moves as the unmistakable Brazilian hit the crossbar in the first half. The Barcelona team took the lead through Ronaldinho when he scored a penalty in the first half.
Real Madrid legends didn’t take long to put together some impressive moves of their own and were level in the second half when Pedro Munitis scored from a rebound.
Amavisca’s shot was too hot to handle for goalkeeper Codina, and Munitis had the goal at his mercy for the rebound.
The veterans in white then took the lead through an Alfonso Perez goal after some brilliant work by Munitis on the right. Perez’s shot was not the most convincing, but the Real Madrid legend will probably tell you that he meant it.
Barcelona legends went in search of an equalizer and found one when Jofre Mateu took on two Real Madrid legend defenders and slotted the ball past the goalkeeper.
Real Madrid legends eventually won the game through a strike by Ruben de la Red, who slalomed past the Barcelona legends defense to place a perfect shot into the far corner.
Ronaldinho shows plenty of flair for Barcelona legends against Real Madrid legends
