DTotD: Fabio Coentrao climbs on top of Leo Messi

Dirty Tackle

Barcelona beat Real Madrid 3-2 in the first leg of the Supercopa de Espana. As expected, the match was filled with heavy challenges and delicate dives, but one of the most graceful and odd examples of Clasico physicality came early on when Leo Messi and Fabio Coentrao tangled.

The incident really sums up the whole dynamic at play in a Clasico -- Barcelona try to fly over Real Madrid, but Real counter by rolling over on top of Barca and sticking their face in their butts.

Anyway, the mustachioed observer was pleased...

"Yes..." (AS)
