East Rutherford (USA) Brazil’s Neymar Jr. led Barça’s 1-0 victory against Juventus in their first game on the US tour, a match that lost steam in the second half after renewing all Headlines.  The friendly, which is now New Jersey’s most-watched football game – with 82,104 attendees and sold-out tickets was a litmus test for Ernesto Valverde, a recent coach of the Barca team, and for the players themselves.

Neymar leads the victory

A Barca full of stars dominated the first part of the game, where the Brazilian attacked the current runner-up of Europe with his speed and signed the two goals that earned him the victory to Barca and, therefore, a successful debut to Valverde. The azulgrana set had already created two goals in the first two minutes, but the first so much did not arrive until minute 15: assisted by Alcacer, Neymar dodged the defenses of the Turin and signed the play.

The nervousness before the 0-1 stepped on the heels of the Italians, who accumulated several failed attempts, among them an occasion in the minute 19 that Lemina could not take advantage of. Yes, he took advantage again, Neymar, who was not harassed by Juve.

In the 25th minute and surrounded by four of his rivals, the Brazilian received a pass from Messi  who, with 500 goals behind him, has never scored one against Juventus and kicked a goal that cleanly entered goal.  Massimiliano Allegra’s team had no choice but to play a defensive game against the danger created by the striker, although in the last minutes he tried to dodge the hands of Cillessen,

Who saved a little in the 40th minute created an expectation and unleashed the cries of the fans during the first half, but after the break, the intensity of the game came down with a completely renewed lineup in Barcelona.  That was how the Italian side, also with their starters replaced, came back and planted Barca face, managing to destabilize the score thanks to a header by Chiellini, who was assisted by Dybala (m.63).

Both teams looked for the opportunity and the tension escalated in the last ten minutes, when Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto, especially, tried to pull Barcelona FC, which failed in up to 9 times.  Among the incidents of the game, Luis Suarez was briefly absent from a knee injury, But returned hard and fought for a superior victory that could not be against a Juve revitalized by Dybala and Costa.

Those of Turin overcame in a second less intense half and had more possession of the ball against Barca, but also did not achieve any milestone that was worth at least the tie. The match was the first of the preseason that Barcelona FC plays in the International Champions Cup, a competition in which the best teams from Europe participate and is held in the United States and Asia.
