The Miami Clásico ended in a 3-2 blaugrana victory. The team won their last match on their US tour. The goals from Messi, Rakitic and Piqué helped defeat Real Madrid in the third friendly of Barça’s preseason. Valverde’s men played excellently and the blaugranas dominated but both teams had plenty of chances.
This was the first of the three matches between Barça and Real Madrid before the start of La Liga. The two rivals will compete for the first official trophy of the season, the Spanish Super Cup on the 13 and 16 August.
