Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid (Agg. 1-1, Barcelona wins on away goals): Messi misses penalty as Simeone's men see red in Supercopa defeat

Barcelona has claimed the Supercopa de Espana with thanks to an away goals victory over Atletico Madrid following a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana enjoyed the lion's share of possession at Camp Nou and Lionel Messi missed a penalty late on, but in the end Neymar's draw-rescuing away goal a week ago proved to be the difference.

The game was void of clear-cut chances for much of the opening 45 minutes, with the best opportunity of the half falling Atletico's way in the shadows of halftime.

Atletico left back Filipe Luis burst down the wing and squared a ball for Turkish attacker Arda Turan, who turned Gerard Pique inside out, galloped into the box and lashed a blistering shot -- only kept out by a brilliant reflex save from Barca custodian Victor Valdes.

There was much more action in the second period as both teams upped the ante to find a winner.

But as the second half went on, tensions flared -- and Atletico bore the brunt with two red cards, one to Filipe for lashing out with an elbow at Dani Alves off the ball. Turan then saw red, but only after he had already been substituted 20 minutes earlier.

Messi had the chance to end the game from the spot, but he fired his penalty into the crossbar after Pedro was crashed into inside the area to earn the spot kick.

With the final whistle, Tata Martino claimed his first silverware in charge of Barcelona just one month into the Camp Nou job.
