It is pre-season and all what perceives has to be analysed with a lot of caution, because the players still are far of his physical level. But the first feelings of the Barça after two friendly are more than positive. There is intensity, there is impudence, there is ambition. Valverde Seems to have built a very clear philosophy. 

The Barça went back to show an image more than remarkable in the first-half. Physically it saw him very whole to the team of the 'Txingurri'. The defence, very reliable -very Semedo-, the centre of the field dominated -destellos of Aleñá- and the MSN went back to show lethal up. When they take the balloon smells the danger and the holidays has not done them lose connection. 

The United proposed very little, by not saying at all. Shut backwards, the ones of Mourinho looked for the speed of Rashford and Lingard to surprise to the Barcelona team, but all the centres were intercepted by Umtiti and Mascherano, flawless backwards. The ones of Valverde carried again the initiative in the game, with a Rakitic timer and an Aleñá proactivo, leaving samples of his soberbia technical. 

Had Messi several opportunities to open the tin, but his shots toparon with Of Gea or the stick. It was Neymar, in the minute 31, the one who would open the tin after an action rocambolesca in the English area. The Brazilian, pícaro and skillful, took advantage of of the error of Valencia and beat to Of Gea with a shot almost to a short pleasure two metres of the goal. 

The first half hour could have been perfectly an ode to the British football. A taking and daca constant, high rhythm -any one would say that it is pre-season- and few pauses. For the viewer, a delícia. It could expand the difference the Barcelona group, but Of Gea went back to take part when Suárez already smelt the blood. 

A second half insulsa

If in front of the Juventus the acting offered an image more than remarkable -and surprising-, this time did not go like this. It burn, Denis and Iniesta were slow and, in the case of the second, practically non-existent. It showed his physical power Roberto, doing of Busquets, and Alcácer moved well in attack, failing a clear opportunity to sentence the meeting. The defence, flawless, with Hammered exerting of leader. Vermaelen Fulfilled, although it neither was very demanded. 

The most positive, keep the goal to zero -Cillessen was sublime- and hold the type in front of an eleven very competitive of the United, that in few days will have to face a Supercopa of Europe in front of the Madrid. 

In the last minutes tried it desperately the English group, but the shots of Rashford left to the clouds. The Barça adds the second victory in this pre-season and already leads the International Champions Cup. Good feelings. The Saturday expects the Madrid.
