A golazo from Raphinha was all that separated Barcelona and Real Madrid in a preseason edition of El Clásico in Las Vegas that saw the debut of Robert Lewandowski and a masterclass of defending by Ronald Araujo. Thibaut Courtois kept Madrid in the game, but Xavi can be happy with what he saw in a […]

Going down 2-0 in the first half proved too much for Barcelona in a frustrating loss to Real Madrid. Mingueza’s second half goal gave the Blaugrana a lifeline, but it wasn’t meant to be on a rainy night in El Clásico
