Pep Guardiola leads tribute to victims of Barcelona attack

Pep Guardiola leads tribute to victims of Barcelona attack

Casemiro added a second goal seven minutes later, and Bale assisted Toni Kroos to round off the victory in the 63rd.

Messi writes: 'I want to send my condolences and all my support to the family and friends of the victims of the bad attack on our beloved Barcelona, as well as totally rejecting all forms of violence.

Barcelona got their La Liga season off to a winning start on Sunday, beating Real Betis 2-0 at a emotional Camp Nou following a pair of terrorist attacks in Catalonia. Barcelona won the Miami game, 3-2.

The front pages of the sport papers in Spain on Friday were dominated by the events on the streets of Barcelona, with Marca writing: "Today, we can not speak about sport" and Mundo Deportivo leading with "Horror".

President Trump to outline Afghanistan strategy in primetime address
Mr Tankel said outsourcing the battle in Afghanistan was the "worst of all options" open to the Trump administration. The White House said Friday that Trump was "studying and considering his options" for a new approach to the regions.

A huge security operation will be put in place for Sunday's match against Real Betis (kick off 1815GMT) at the club's 99,000 capacity Camp Nou after the attacks this week killed 14 people and left hundreds injured.

Spanish and European champions Real Madrid tweeted a picture of their first-team squad holding a minute's silence at their training base, with the likes of newly promoted Catalan club Girona, Granada, Levante and Real Mallorca posting similar images of their players and staff.

Lionel Messi was the fulcrum of most of Barca's creativity and more responsibility was placed on his shoulders due to the absence of Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta.

Nelson Semedo also looked lively on his debut for Barca, but Real Betis were never able to test the Catalan side defensively.

Huddersfield beats Newcastle to make it two in two
They hung with Tottenham for the first half, but Jonjo Shelvey picked up a red card three minutes after the restart. Huddersfield will be still on a massive high but can come crashing down here with an early goal to Newcastle.

The former Everton man created both goals - an Alin Tosca own-goal and Sergi Roberto's strike - as Barca responded well to a hard week.

Newcastle's former Real Madrid and Valencia boss Rafael Benitez called friends in Barcelona when he heard news of the attack. Deportivo were left to rue two big opportunities missed by Florin Andone in the first 10 minutes, whilst the Romanian worldwide also saw a late penalty saved by Keylor Navas. However, he should be even pleased if they manage to secure a point at Camp Nou, which has always been a hard place for away teams.

Barca were rampant, but their Argentinian superstar's luck had for once deserted him with the woodwork coming to Betis' rescue for a third time with nine minutes remaining, this time repelling his blistering rising drive.

Athletic Club and Getafe fought out a scoreless draw.
