If we’re being honest, this game is no contest. Barcelona, even in preseason form, is eating Inter Miami for breakfast. It’s total domination, and that’s reflected on the scoreline. Raphinha, in his Barcelona debut, is the star with a goal and two assists, but the entire attack is sizzling. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ansu Fati, and Franck Kessie all have “wow” moments through the first 45 minutes. Inter Miami hardly have a dangerous kick in the entire match.
42nd min: GOAL, Barcelona! It’s a rout. Barcelona add a third via Ansu Fati, who finishes off a fabulous buildup with a glittering strike. Raphinha is the creative force again, flicking a wonderful ball in Fati’s path, and he whips it top shelf under pressure from a defender. What a goal!
26th min: GOAL, BARCELONA! This time coming down the left flank, Barcelona attacks again and it’s a poor showing from Inter Miami goalkeeper Nick Marsman to let the visitors double the lead. A little flicked cross from Alex Balde on the left edge of the penalty area comes to Raphinha’s feet and he fires from a tight angle. Marsman got a hand to it, but still allows the ball to squeak across. From that tight of an angle, there’s no way a shot should find the inside of the far post.
19th min: GOAL, BARCELONA! Aubameyang opens the scoring with a delightful chipped finish. The Inter Miami defense is all over the place, and it starts with a Pedri backheel to Raphinha who finds Aubameyang while falling down. The striker turns to face Marsman and clowns him with a fantastic chip.
