Barcelona recorded a comfortable 3-2 win over arch-rivals Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of the 2017/18 season to be crowned as the winners of the International Champions Cup.

Ernesto Valverde’s first El Clasico started in the perfect manner with Lionel Messi scoring the opener within the first 3 minutes of the game. It didn’t take the Camp Nou outfit much longer to double their lead with Ivan Rakitic scoring the second in the 7th minute.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring within the first 3 minutes, with Ivan Rakitic adding to the tally only 4 minutes later. The Camp Nou outfit could have added a couple more to their tally if not for some poor finishing by Messi and Neymar.

Barcelona were on fire in the early exchanges as Real Madrid slowly found their footing in the game. Zinedine Zidane’s side pulled one back through Mateo Kovacic before Marco Asensio equalised to evenly poise the game for the second half.

However, Gerard Pique’s goal in the 50th minute proved to be enough to hand the Catalan side a win in the pre-season El Clasico.

Real Madrid pulled one back through Mateo Kovacic, while Marco Asensio equalised soon after to see the two sides remain level at the break. Gerard Pique scored almost immediately after the restart and despite the best efforts of the Santiago Bernabeu outfit, they could not come up with another equaliser.

Twitter, as you would expect, didn’t hold back and trolled Real Madrid. Here are the best tweets:
