Barça opens pre-season against Bayern MunichJuly 25, 2013
FC Barcelona played their first pre-season friendly yesterday evening when they travelled to Munich to play against Pep Guardiola’s new club.
The match was the first in which they showed off their new away strip, in the red and yellow colours of the Catalan flag, and while during the first half a number of familiar faces made the lineup including Leo Messi, the second half saw the Catalans fielding their B team.
In the end it was the Germans who won the match but given the number of B team players acquitted themselves well against the European champions. Goals came in minutes 13 and 85, but as a first match it wasn’t a bad result.
1-0 Lahm (min 13)
2-0 Mandzukic (min 85)
