Just a couple of days after their Copa del Rey final win over Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona played Barcelona in a charity futsal match in aid of the fight against poverty.
Resplendent in the new home and away kits for season 2012/20123, one team was managed by outgoing coach Pep Guardiola with the other led by the new man in charge, Tito Vilanova.
Guardiola managed the away team which included Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets whilst Vilanova led Gerard Pique and Xavi in the home strip.
The match finished 8-8, with Guardiola seeing off his assistant coach on penalties.
Two main highlights stood out. Gerard Pique showing off some fancy footwork whilst using a mobile phone and reserve keeper Jose Pinto scoring a quality goal, starting from the back, both can be seen on the video report below.
