Barça delight a packed Camp Nou

Jordi Clos

FC Barcelona produced an excellent five-goal performance against Inter Milan on Wednesday night in front of almost 100,000 spectators.

The 42ª Joan Gamper tournament was a complete sell-out, with 98,599 spectators enjoying a spirited Barça performance. However, there was also a sombre side to the evening as the fans paid tribute to the recently deceased former Barça vice-president Nicolau Casaus and Sevilla player Antonio Puerta.

A colourful sight

On entering the stadium, the fans were given the first ‘Diari Camp Nou’ newsletter of the season – devoted to the evening’s match – plus the ‘Member’s Guide’. The new official shirt was much in evidence on the terraces alongside the shirts from the previous two seasons, making a mosaic of blues and yellows.

A tribute

A buzz went around the Camp Nou every time that Henry received the ball, Deco was applauded every time he took a free kick, while former Madrid player Solari was greeted by a hostile reception. By the 30th minute the first Mexican wave appeared and was subsequently followed a number more. Barça flags were to be seen everywhere and the noise of the claxons was deafening. A tremendous tribute to two great figures of the football world - Puerta and Casaus.
