Valdes helps Barca to Super Cup victory

MADRID - Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes conjured two stunning saves to deny Atletico Madrid and help the La Liga champions secure a fourth Spanish Super Cup in five years on away goals after a scrappy 0-0 second leg draw at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

After last week’s first leg at the Calderon ended 1-1, expectations of an entertaining spectacle were high when new signing Neymar, who came off the bench to head the equalizer in Madrid, was put in the starting lineup for the first time since joining from Santos. World Player of the Year Lionel Messi was also back from injury but both struggled in the match.
