After two months of holidays and friendlies, the season officially started. FC Barcelona beat Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercup 5-4 on aggregate, performing brilliantly in both matches, with Messi getting three of the goals. A week later, Barça added the European Supercup by beating Porto (2-0) with goals from Messi and the other big summer signing, Cesc Fàbregas. That made it 12 out of 15 titles for Guardiola. Astounding.
