The Catalans played some magical football in the first half and kept the fun going throughout the 90 minutes, and the home crowd were treated to an incredible show in the pre-season finale.

FIRST HALF

The first 20 minutes of the game was an absolute thrill ride: Barça played some magical attacking football, scoring four amazing goals in a stretch that we might see very few times this season. It was truly impressive, with combination play and movement of the highest level regardless of how weak the Pumas defense looked.

Robert Lewandowski started the game, scoring his first goal for the club in stunning fashion after a great assist from Pedri and an incredible finish from an unlikely angle; Lewa then returned the favor just one minute later and assisted Pedri who rounded the keeper before scoring against an empty net.

Five minutes after that it was time for Raphinha and Ousmane Dembélé to join the party as the Brazilian came up with the assist and the Frenchman fired the ball home with a powerful low shot. Barça continued to attack and created a nice attack, with Raphinha and Lewandowski both hitting the post before the fourth goal, which came with a wonderful backheel from Lewa and another excellent finish from Pedri.

Barça ran out the clock in the final 20 minutes of the period, and at half-time victory was in the bag thanks to a sensational performance.

SECOND HALF

Despite seven changes at half-time Barça continued to attack and play loose and fun football in the final period, and they made it 5-0 just four minutes in when a nice passing combination ended with an assist for Franck Kessie and a tap-in for Pierre. -Emerick Aubameyang

Although the speed has slowed down quite a bit Blaugrana continued to dominate possession and create chances, and the sixth goal came when Frenkie De Jong stole the ball from a Pumas player in midfield and found the back of the net with a beautiful finish.

The final whistle came a few minutes later, and Barça won the Gamper with their best performance of this pre-season and look very, very good ahead of the new campaign. The signings look like perfect, and this team is pretty strong right now.
