Barcelona: Italian side Sampdoria beat Spanish giants Barcelona to win the Joan Gamper Cup at the Camp Nou on Monday night.
Roberto Soriano scored in the 2nd minute to put the Italians ahead. The Catalans did their best to get the equalizer but they couldnt manage it.
Barcelona, who thrashed Real Sociedad 5-1 in their La Liga opener on Saturday, looked a pale shadow of that team.
The Italians fielded a very experienced team that defended exceptionally after getting the early goal. The Catalans coach Tito Vilanova on the other hand went in with an inexperienced side. The most players from the Real Sociedad match were rested.
