The Argentinian was the big star of the match with two goals and one assist
Barcelona beat Sampdoria 3-2 in the Gamper trophy. Leo Messi was the man of the match with a perfect first half, where he assisted one goal and scored another two. Sampdoria were great in the second half and reduced the scoreline.
Luis Enrique gave Digne his first start in the left-back, as Jordi Alba didn't perform due to physical issues. Barcelona's first goal was one to remember. Messi with an overhead kick assisted Luis Suarez, who just needed to put the head to score. Then Messi with an incredible free-kick showed once again he is the master of this speciality.
In the second half the match lost some pace. Umtiti and Andre Gomes made their debuts. The three goalkeepers also performed, 30 minutes each. Masip was the only one who didn't concede.
Barcelona's next match is an official one. They will travel to Sanchez Pizjuan to face Sevilla in the first leg of the Spanish Supercup.
