In his absence, the Blaugranes got the game underway quickly and aggressively, working Milan in the opening phases.

Although there is still much for Xavi to improve, the Rossoneri gave Barca a respectable preseason workout. Xavi may be satisfied with several areas of team play during the encounter.

Three discussion points from the game are included below

Marcos Alonso out of his depth

That didn’t help him much when he had to switch to holding Christian Pulisic back since otherwise the American would have easily passed him.

He was also fortunate that a chance for the Serie A team that left him still due to a straightforward ball played in behind resulted in nothing.

Too predictable down the right side

Although Ousmane Dembele was many things, he wasn’t predictable.

Abde on the left now possesses that unpredictable nature, whereas Raphinha on this particular night was a touch too one-dimensional.

Raphinha’s attempts to advance were quickly foiled by Milan, who quickly realised what they were doing and brought over another defender in assistance.

The kids are alright

Once Alejandro Balde and Ansu Fati were introduced, notice how the pendulum swung.

Balde once more made the difference. While his final pass might use some finessing, Milan’s defence was constantly troubled by his pace and dynamism down the left side.

It’s unfortunate that a lethargic Robert Lewandowski in the midfield wasn’t frequently on the same wavelength as the attacking centre of Barcelona’s assaults in the second half.
