The first game of the Champions League group stage is against the very same side that Barça faced in the first preseason friendly this summer. The International Champions Cup match on July 30 was played in Dublin, and Barça won 3-1.

With most of the big international stars still not back from their vacation, it was Arda who opened the scoring, but the Scots equalised through Griffiths. An own goal put the Catalans back in front and then Munir finished the job. In this video you can enjoy highlights of the game in the Irish capital.

But we don’t just have images of the game. This video is a reminder of everything that happened behind the scenes that lovely day in Ireland – from the flight to Dublin and the arrival at the team hotel to the warm-up inside the Aviva Stadium and the atmosphere after the final whistle.
