Inter Miami vs Barcelona: Barca Wins 6-0 As Raphinha Strikes On His Debut
FC Barcelona defeated David-Beckham-owned Inter Miami 6-0 in a pre-season friendly, with new signing Raphinha scoring on his debut.
In their preseason friendly in Miami, FC Barcelona beat David Beckham’s Inter Miami 6-0, with Raphinha scoring on his debut.
The other goal scorers were the Brazilian, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ansu Fati, Gavi, Memphis Depay, and Ousmane Dembele.
The La Liga heavyweights traveled to the United States for their preseason matches, where they faced Inter Miami, who is owned by David Beckham.
With six goals past the hosts, the Catalans proved to be too much for the Major League Soccer (MLS) team.
In the 19th minute, Aubameyang lobbed the opposing goalkeeper from short range to give Barcelona the lead for the first time.
Raphinha, a £50 million summer acquisition by Barcelona, quickly acclimated to his surroundings and scored after 25 minutes.
The third goal, which Ansu Fati scored with a stunner from outside the area, practically sealed the victory.
