Giovanni lifts Barcelona to win over Red Star

BARCELONA, Oct 17 (Reuter) - Barcelona hardly noticed the absence of
striker Ronaldo in their European Cup Winners' Cup match against Red Star
Belgrade on Thursday thanks to another matchwinning Brazilian -- midfielder

He scored twice in as many minutes as the Catalans came from behind to take
a comfortable 3-1 victory into the second leg of the second round tie.

Red Star had taken the lead after 21 minutes through a freak goal by
Bratislav Zivkovic, and Barcelona appeared subdued without top scorer
Ronaldo, who missed the game to join the Brazilian squad for a friendly

Zivkovic broke down the left and slid in for a challenge with Barcelona
midfielder Luis Enrique, causing the ball to balloon over Portuguese
goalkeeper Vitor Baia into the net.

But 12 minutes later Giovanni chested home a fine left-foot volley by
Bulgarian striker Hristo Stoichkov, and moments later he made it 2-1 by
heading home a cross by Luis Figo.

Barcelona came out strongly in the second half and Figo put them further
ahead after excellent work down the right by former Real Madrid player Luis
Enrique, who had a superb game.

But Bobby Robson's side missed a chance to seal the tie midway through the
second half when keeper Zvonko Milojevic saved a Gheorghe Popescu penalty
after a handball during a scramble in the Red Star area.

The Yugoslavs were forced to defend in strength in the closing minutes and
were reduced to 10 men when Vinko Marinovic picked up his second yellow
card for pushing Giovanni.
