Barça, playing with the likes of Rivaldo and Kluivert, couldn't overcome Madrid in Panama Torrential rains made play difficult in a game decided in the home stretch
Coached by Charly Rexach, a team of Barça legends and former players were in Panama on Saturday night for the Legends Cup against Real Madrid. The game was won by Real Madrid with a lone goal by Congo six minutes from time. The exhibition match, played at Rommel Fernandez stadium, featured many former Barça players like Sergi, Rivaldo, Kluivert, Belletti, and Ludovic Giuly.
The first and second halves were polar opposites. Madrid was superior in the first half, while Barça took control of the second. Field conditions were less than ideal as torrential rain fell throughout the encounter and made even the simplest acts look difficult.
The following players played for Barça: Roberto Bonano, Quique Martin, Edgar Davids, Francesco Coco, Gaizka Mendieta, Jon Andoni Goikoetxea, Juliano Haus Belletti, Ludovic Giuly, Lluis Carreras, Luis Garcia, Luis Milla, Miguel Angel Lozano, Patrick Kluivert, Robert Fernandez, Santiago Ezquerro, Sergi Barjuan, and Rivaldo.
