MIAMI (AP) – Marco Fabian scored twice within a two-minute span midway through the second half to lead Chivas of Mexico to a 4-1 victory over Barcelona before a record South Florida soccer crowd of 70,080 at Sun Life Stadium Wednesday night.
Chivas broke through with three goals during a 12-minute sequence against the Champions League winners and erased a 1-0 halftime deficit.
Fabian tied the match in the 60th minute with a blast from 30 yards out. Two minutes later, Omar Arellano's centering pass from the right wing found Fabian open near the far post. Fabian jumped and converted on a scissors kick from eight yards.
Chivas went ahead 3-1 on Giovani Casillas' goal in the 72nd minute. Jesus Sanchez sped past the Barcelona backline and centered a pass to an open Casillas, who beat Pinto with a shot just inside the 6-yard box.
Jose Luis Verduzco scored Chivas' fourth goal in the 90th minute.
David Villa scored Barcelona's goal in the third minute. Gerard Pique sent a long pass to an open Villa, who dribbled a couple of yards into the area and blasted a shot that landed under the crossbar and past Chivas goalkeeper Luis Michel.
