Barcelona thrashed MLS side Inter Miami 6-0 in a preseason friendly in the United States of America, on Tuesday.

Raphinha, who joined Barcelona from Leeds United this summer, was among the six different goalscorers for Barcelona.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raphinha and Ansu Fati scored the first-half goals as Barcelona led 3-0.

Oscar Hernandez made 11 changes at half-time, and the play from Barca was still beautiful, as three more goals were added.

Memphis played a clever low corner for Gavi to smash into the top corner for the fourth.

The fifth goal came from a piece of genius from Memphis, as he left his marker for dead before tucking home.

Returnee Ousmane Dembele got the sixth goal, as he smashed from the edge of the box.

Speaking after the game, Barca defender Eric Garcia was pleased with the team’s start.

He said: “I think that starting our preseason tour like this is important. We’ve had great opportunities for everybody. we have to continue this way to be at our best for our debut in LaLiga.

“It’s a pleasure. It’s amazing and it tells us just how great this country is… I hope we have the same support in Las Vegas.”
