Barcelona again showed their recent supremacy over rivals Real Madrid following a 3-2 win at the Hardrock Stadium, Miami in their International Champions Cup (ICC) clash.
Argentine superstar Lionel Messi gave the Nou Camp giants the lead as early as the 3rd minute before midfielder Ivan Rakitic added a second goal three minutes later.
Real Madrid, who were without their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, however battled back through first half goals from Mateo Kovacic and Marco Asensio but it was the controversial Gérard Pique who turned out to be the matchwinner for Barcelona as he netted early in the second half off Neymar’s freekick.
The game was new Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde’s first game against Real Madrid in the el-clasico and he would have taken a lot of confidence
from his side’s display ahead of their Spanish Super Cup clash (first leg) scheduled for August 13.
