The team were awesome against Roma in the Gamper match / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

Luis Enrique and his team have had four weeks of training and five friendly matches since returning to duty on July 13 and getting down to double training sessions each day. They’ve been on tour in the United States and now they’ve played their first game of the season at the Camp Nou in the Joan Gamper Trophy. Some of the players have not yet hit their peaks, but the feeling after the five games played so far is that things are on the right track. The record so far, in games against top quality opposition, is two wins, two draws (one followed by a penalty shootout defeat) and one loss, with nine goals for and eight against.
