Barça defeated by Man UtdJuly 27, 2015
Saturday saw FC Barcelona face Manchester United in the second match of their US tour, where they are participating in the International Champions Cup.
Following their straightforward victory against LA Galaxy Barça’s second match was to prove a tougher game and the English side got down to business early on with Rooney scoring in the seventh minute. While that was disappointing, not disastrous, the Catalans failed to make any headway against United and fell further behind nearly 20 minutes into the second half, when Lingard made it 2-0.
Both sides were looking lethargic under the sunshine and with poor turf, Barcelona had some good attempts on the Man Utd goal that came to nothing. Finally with the clock counting down tot the final whistle Rafinha clawed back some dignity for Barcelona to make it 2-1. However, while the squad may have hoped to score a second in the remaining seconds of the match it was instead Januzaj for Man Utd who scored the final goal of the match to end on 3-1.
0-1 Rooney (min 7)
0-2 Lingard (min 64)
1-2 Rafinha (min 89)
1-3 Januzaj (min 90)
