Match Report

Eto'o honoured

Samuel Eto'o was named as the Man of the Match against Bayern Munich. The Cameroon striker scored twice as he netted his first two goals at Camp Nou this season. Eto'o also scored in Houston onthe pre-season tour.

Gamper Delight

All the players were delighted after the 4-0 victory against Bayern Munich in the Gamper Trophy on Tuesday as Barça produced another display of entertaining football against the Bundesliga champions.

Frank Rijkaard's side are warming up for the new season in style and their performance in the annual invitational match proved that they are, once again, ready to challenge on all fronts. The focus now turns to the European Super Cup on Friday against Sevilla in Monaco and the squad are all hoping that they can continue playing in the same manner.

Below are what some of the players had to say after the Bayern match, a game that saw Samuel Eto'o score twice and Ronaldinho and Javier Saviola net one apiece:

"My relationship with Frank Rijkaard is good, we talk openly about things."

"When I went on I felt very emotional, it was incredible because I felt immeditately that I had the support of the fans."

"The team has a lot of quality with great players. Today we showed that we can field two competitive teams. That is very important in what will prove to be a long season."

"The people who came to the ground had a good time and that is important."

"We will have to keep our feet on the ground so that we do not panic when a bad result happens."

Albert Jorquera

"We are in good physical shape and can be confident ahead of the game on Friday against Sevilla."

"It was a great sensation to be able to wear the captain's armband and to be able to lift the trophy."
