BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona won the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday after being held to a 0-0 draw at home by 10-man Atletico Madrid, claiming the trophy on away goals following a 1-1 tie in the opening leg.

Lionel Messi had a chance to secure the win for Barcelona in the 89th minute, but fired his penalty kick off the crossbar.

Atletico's disciplined defense stifled a Barcelona's attack featuring Messi, who recovered from injury, and Neymar, making his first starting appearance for his new club.

Atletico enjoyed the best scoring opportunities other than Messi's penalty attempt, but it wasn't able to get the critical goal. Atletico's chances were hurt in the 81st when Filipe Luis was given a red card for apparently hitting Dani Alves.

The scoreless draw meant Neymar's first-leg goal was the difference.
