Barcelona won the first official trophy of the new season, beating Athletic Bilbao by 5-1 on aggregate to take the Spanish Supercup for the eighth time.
With Guardiola putting out a full-strength side and Caparrós saving his best players for the midweek Europa League qualifier, the hosts were expected to build on their first leg lead. But although Ibrahimovic, Henry, Messi and Xavi all tried their luck, they were unable to beat Iraizoz and his defence before the break.
Four minutes after the restart though Messi picked up a pass from Ibrahimovic and turned past Ustaritz before clipping a shot over the keeper from a wide angle, and the League champions were on their way.
Puyol powered a header against the bar before his side were awarded a hotly disputed penalty after Alves fell under a challenge from Ustaritz, and Messi stepped up to score his second of the night from the spot.
And substitute Bojan wrapped things up just a minute after coming on, nipping in to round the keeper and run the ball in to the net after some sloppy defending by Iturraspe and Ustaritz.
