Barcelona capped off their pre-season friendly series in fine style on Tuesday, as the Blaugrana won the Joan Gamper Trophy, coming from behind to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in an enthralling match at the Olympic Stadium in Montjuic.

Ronald Araujo seemed to have suffered an injury scare against Tottenham Hotspur, as the Uruguayan left the pitch as a precaution in the first-half.

Araujo who started out at right-back, seemed to have suffered some muscle problems in the first half, and after a sprint down the right wing, he asked to be subbed off.

Reports have it that the defender suffered no injury nevertheless, and Xavi also confirmed it after the game.

Barcelona will kick off their La Liga campaign, with a first game of the season on Sunday, August 13, away against Getafe.
