Goals from Luis Suárez and Sergi Roberto
Barcelona started well the pre-season with a good victory over LA Galaxy (1-2). Luis Enrique's men were solid on both halves and showed a good version against the MLS team. Luis Suarez and Sergi Roberto scored the goals.
1st half XI: Masip, Douglas, Bartra, Mathieu, Adriano, Rakitic, Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Pedro, Luis Suárez, Rafinha.
Luis Enrique used a very competent eleven in the first half. Galaxy deployed Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard upfront, but they didn't touch many balls. Masip didn't have much work to be honest. Sergi Roberto and Suarez tried with long range efforts before the Uruguayan, in the 44th minute, scored the first pre-season goal with a great shot with his left foot. Classic number 9 goal.
2nd half XI. Masip (69' Suarez), Douglas, Bartra, Piqué, Vermaelen, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto (60' Gumbau), Samper, Iniesta, Munir, Sandro, Rafinha (69' Halilovic).
Barcelona were also better in the 2nd half, with Sandro and Munir trying to show they deserve a place in this year's squad. Sergi Roberto, who has been under scrutiny recently, scored the second.
Douglas has been the only player who completed the 90' minutes, as Dani Alves is still on vacation and Aleix Vidal is not available until January. Barcelona conceded some chances in the last minutes and Galaxy take one to reduce the score. Meyer, with a header, scored the last goal of the match. Barcelona will now face Manchester United in the next pre-season match next Saturday.
