Barcelona got their first pre-season win, as they inflicted the Los Blancos a whopping 3-0 defeat in Arlington, Texas.

15 minutes into the game, Barcelona threw the first blow, with Ousmane Dembele scoring from a Pedri assist.

Vinicius Jr will fail to score from the spot five minutes later, as Real Madrid were awarded a penalty.

There were a number of chances in the first half for both sides, but the score remained the same, as Barca took a 1-0 lead into the break.

The second-half witnessed more of the same, as Real Madrid pressed for an equaliser, while Barca tried to increase the gap.

It was Barcelona who would get their wish, as substitute Fermin Marin scored an 85th minute goal to increase the lead for the Blaugrana.

Marin would then assist fellow substitute Ferran Torres who scored a stoppage time goal to increase Madrid’s woes.

Up next for Barca is a pre-season tie against AC Milan on August 2, before the start of the 2023-24 campaign.
