The Blues easily defeated the Catalans, who played without Messi, Suarez and Cottinho. Tami Abraham and Ross Barkley were captured by the Englishmen. Grisman and De Jong were the first to make the blaugrana
The city of Saitama in Japan today hosted Barcelona and Chelsea, who met an intriguing preparation game that ended in a 1: 2 English victory. Barca, still without the players who played in the American box like Messi, Suarez and Cotinho, seemed naturally uncoordinated and with plenty of rust. On the other hand, the Blues, along with Frank Lampard on the lines, came up with an interesting ensemble that included several names worth keeping an eye on. Maisen Mount, Christian Polisic and Tammy Abraham started the attack with Pedro, who met his youth team, which is actually the only team he played except for Chelsea.
In the 35th minute we received a rare play when Sergio Busquets made a serious mistake when he lost a ball to Gorzinho and Tammy Abraham used it to conquer the first. Ross Barkley doubled in the 80th minute and Ivan Rakitich set the score for the game with a beautiful goal with a long-distance kick plus time. On Tuesday, Barça is expected to play another intriguing preparatory match against Wisl Cuba, the team of the two Exes that they won in the Champions League - Andres Iniesta and David Vieux.
