Barcelona won the first trophy after parting ways with Messi

Barcelona beat Juventus and won the Joan Gamper friendly at the Johan Cruyff Stadium. The Catalans won 3-0 and the goals were scored by Memphis Depay, Martin Brightway and Ricky Puch.

Although the bet was a trophy, the two coaches used the match for experiments before the start of the seasons in Spain and Italy.

The hosts took advantage of their first good opportunity in the match and took the lead with 1: 0. In the 3rd minute Juve made a blunder, Yusuf Demir brought Memphis Depay behind the defense and the Dutchman scored.

In the 7th minute Serginho Dest broke on the right flank and made a dangerous shot, which, however, did not find the target.

Two minutes later, Depay fired dangerously, but he wasn't accurate either. A quarter of an hour after the start, the Bianconeri missed a good opportunity to equalize. Cristiano Ronaldo found himself in a clear shooting position, but his shot in the near corner was saved by Neto.

Half an hour after the start, the Italians organized a good attack. Ronaldo took control of the edge of the penalty area and combined with Matthias De Schilio, who shot powerfully, but over the crossbar.

In the 37th minute Brightwight again escaped from the defense of Juventus. He found himself face to face with Schwesny, but could not overcome him. An accurate addition by Antoine Griezmann followed. However, the Frenchman's goal was disregarded due to an ambush, and the repetitions confirmed the rightness of the referee's decision.

In the counterattack, a great save had to be made by Neto, who reflected a strong blow from Morata's volley. Shortly before the break, the Brazilian guard intervened properly and with a direct direct free kick by Ronaldo.

After the break, Juventus picked up the pace in search of a goal, but never managed to score. Instead, in the 58th minute, the Catalans doubled their lead. Brightwhite intercepted a cross from a corner kick and scored for 2: 0.

Juventus failed to push Barça to reduce the gap, and the point of contention was finally put in the second minute of added time, when Ricky Puch made the result classic - 3: 0. He broke and sent the ball into the net with a nice shot.

For Barcelona, ​​today's test was the last before the start of the new season. In the first round of La Liga, the Catalans meet Real Sociedad. Juve will have another control - against Atalanta on August 14.
