Hleb is not playing well on the right flank, he's hindering Dani Alves. Xavi and Iniesta are combining, but like last season, Barcelona seems to lack quality in the final third. Valdes looks tired; the defenders shaky. Iniesta is the only one who's shown some class going forward. First half's about to end...Iniesta wins a penalty! Eto to take it I suppose...Hold your breath. 30 seconds into stoppage time. Could be Eto's 100th for Barcelona...Another substitution for Real Betis. Poor Lima's going off, after having come off the bench in the first place. Eto shoots. Ricardo saves. Ball bounces back, Eto is first to react, picks up the rebound, scores. Barcelona 1 - 2 Real Betis. Half-time. Bring Messi on, Guardiola. He can work fairytales.
