WATCH: Lewandowski’s dazzling flick sets up Pedri goal for Barcelona in Joan Gamper Trophy
Barcelona demolished Pumas in their final pre-season outing
Barcelona newcomer Robert Lewandowski gave Camp Nou a dazzling first-half performance on Sunday in the Joan Gamper Trophy that saw him score and register two outrageous assists – the pick of the bunch being a lovely flick into the path of Pedri. The Spaniard sent the defender the Pumas wrong way before powering a strike into the bottom corner and scoring Barca’s fourth of the night.
Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele also linked up nicely in the rampant first-half showing, with the Frenchman hammering the ball home from just inside the box.
Barcelona ultimately emerged 6-0 winners in the historic exhibition fixture.
