Barca 6-0 Pumas: new Barcelona signing named man of the match after a top performance against Pumas.
Barcelona hosted Pumas at Camp Nou as the two teams compete for the Joan Gamper trophy.
The game ended in a 6-0 victory for Barcelona and the team did everyone proud with their performance tonight.
The Catalans have unveiled their lineup for this next match, which includes well-known players like newly acquired Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele.
While players like Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie are both starting on the bench, even Raphinha has been given the opportunity to play. They are anticipated to appear later in the contest, possibly in their maiden game at Camp Nou.
Martin Braithwaite and Samuel Umtiti are the two significant omissions from the Barcelona team, though.
Umtiti’s absence validates earlier this week’s rumors that he wouldn’t be present for either the reveal or the match because he’s still looking for a transfer away from Camp Nou.
In the meanwhile, Braithwaite has slipped in the lineup, particularly after Lewandowski was added. Memphis Depay and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are also on the roster, but neither forward will take the field against PUMAS.
3 talking points from today’s game
Robert Lewandowski and Pedri link-up
I think that we’ll see more of Pedri and Lewandowski master class on the pitch this season. Both players link-up well and they understand each other.
The Barcelona new man registered two assists while he scored one goal. He is so calm and composed. He is definitely the right man for Barcelona and he has been given the man of the match award.
He got three goals involvement against Pumas tonight and it’s a performance to remember as he scored his first ever goal for the club.
Frenkie De Jong second half master class
The Dutch midfielder left the fans shouting after his second half cameo against Pumas. He did extremely well and the fans doesn’t want him out as he want to stay.

De Jong is happy with the project and he always want to stay at the club, but the economic situation could force him out of the club. His performance tonight shows why Manchester United needs him.
Ousmane Dembele scoring form
Ousmane Dembele’s improvement in the front of goal is not being talked about enough. The French winger has improved in this season and he is not afraid to shoot from outside the box.
He link-up well with Raphinha for the second goal against Pumas. He has scored in the last three games and he will help the team this season.
