Barcelona to the World Club FinalBarcelona fell just short of his sixth title of the year by beating Mexico's Atlante 3-1 to advance to the final of Club World to Students.

In the Zayed Sports City Stadium, Abu Dhabi, the Barca goals were scored by Sergio Busquets (35 '), Lionel Messi (55') and Pedro Rodriguez (67 '), going up even initial disadvantage.

Barça began playing and trying the ball well, while Atlante showed respectful.

However, the Atlante surprised to open the scoring after five minutes with a bit of Guillermo Rojas. A long ball released by the Mexican defense to beat the Catalans, and the little midfielder passed the ball over goalkeeper Victor Valdes and scored almost at will (1-0).

CONCACAF champions took refuge in their area and successfully stopped the attack of Barcelona, and even had another opportunity to increase the lead on a counterattack in which Carles Puyol cleared the shot from Fernando Navarro.

El Barcelona controlled the ball and did so without much dynamic movement, looking for a change of front, while the Aztecs are hinted at by the left wing backlash because, curiously, the right was deserted.

Andres Iniesta hit a sharp shot in the 25th minute but the ball went by. The domain Barca continued, but his men lacked imagination.

And in the 35th minute after a corner kick from the right, Yaya Toure headed in a deflected toward the left and the ball got it Busquets for ordering the equalizer with a low shot (1-1).

This goal calmed the wards of the strategist Pep Guardiola, who, with the audience on his side, followed by rotating the ball.

Messi arrives. The second half of the first game in a stadium half full so far this tournament began with the same vein as the first. At 53 'Leo Messi and Toure tore entered an ovation from the stands, while Gerard Pique replaced by Rafael Marquez.

The Golden Ball received his first ball to the edge of the goal area, he went to Vilar scored from the right and left-footed free arch with the 2-1 (55th minute), the stadium seemed to fall. The Argentine star came from an ankle injury.

Pedro Rodriguez sealed the victory at 67 ', in a dubious goal. But the youth squad became the first player in club history to score goals in all competitions played his club officers (Liga, Copa del Rey, Spain and European Super Cup, Champions League and World Club).

The result was fair, however, the club of Barcelona's shirt had to sweat to get it. Try their sixth trophy of the year, an unprecedented achievement after winning the Champions League, the Spanish tournament, the Copa del Rey, Spain Super Cup and European Super Cup.

Atlante will play next Saturday at South Korea's Pohang Steelers for third place.
