FC Barcelona

Barcelona will enter the match off of a Tuesday 2-2 tie with Juventus. They began their preparations with a 1-1 draw against Olot. In their first two matches of their American tour, they defeated Inter Miami 6-0 and Real Madrid 1-0. Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha, and Robert Lewandowski have all joined Barcelona this summer, bolstering their roster despite their financial difficulties. A deal for Sevilla's Jules Kounde has also reportedly been reached.

Prediction

Barcelona have scored nine goals in three preseason games played in the United States this summer, and I anticipate them to score again on Saturday night as we back the Catalan team to defeat their MLS opponents by a wide margin.


Pick: Over 2.5/3 Goals

Final Result: 1-3, 1-4
