Game #3 of 3: Barcelona vs. Chivas de Guadalajara

9 August 2009 No Comment

The main event of the soccer doubleheader was between FC Barcelona and Chivas Guadalajara – a match that I attended at Soldier Field on August 3 last year. With Leo Messi and Thierry Henry playing for Barcelona, the first half of the game was exciting even though neither team scored a goal. After all of the star players were removed in the second half both teams scored a goal – Barcelona in the 49th minute and Chivas in the 63rd minute.

During the second half the Mexican fans lighted flares, which I do not believe I have never seen in a U.S. stadium, but have seen plenty of times in European soccer stadiums.
