Sergi Roberto scored the second of the two goals against LA Galaxy / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

On the eve of Barça’s clash with Man United, Sergi Roberto has spoken about how important it is to play such high profile matches in the preseason. "We could face bigger difficulties than we did against Los Angeles Galaxy” he said. “But we’re grateful to be able to play against teams like United and Chelsea. You play top level teams like this in the Champions League where every game is like a final. It’ll be good for us.”

Speaking after training for the last time before the United match, he added that “more important than the result is to continue getting into our rhythm for the new season and the European Super Cup.”

The session was held in the venue for Saturday’s fixture, the Levi’s Stadium. “It’s a spectacular stadium” said Sergi Roberto. “They tell me it’s new and it’s amazing. It’s the first time I’ve been inside an American football ground and it’ll be a pleasure to be able to play here.”
