Barcelona have won the International Champions Cup, after beating Real Madrid 3-2 in a thrilling El Clasico on Saturday night. The US edition of the pre-season tournament went to Ernesto Valverde’s men, thanks to goals from Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Gerard Pique in Miami.
Rakitic and Messi netted inside the first seven minutes to put the Catalans 2-0 at the Hard Rock Stadium.
Mateo Kovacic reduced the deficit shortly after and Marco Asensio equalized nine minutes before half-time. Defender Gerard Pique restored Barca’s lead in the 50th minute, as Barca beat Manchester City to the ICC trophy, while Madrid ended the tournament without a victory.
