The game got off to a hot start, with Barcelona getting two chances in a row. Sadly, neither Lewandowski nor Aubameyang took advantage of the success. Gradually, Juventus pulled one back, but the Italians often dealt with mistakes in the closing stages.
I thought that the first half of the game would be without a goal, but suddenly it happened again. In the 34th minute, Dembele made a single-handed lore in the penalty area and launched a powerful shot that Szczesny could not stop. After 5 minutes, Juventus attacked perfectly, and Keane received the ball from close range for the “Old Lady” to equalize the score.
Juventus’ joy lasted less than a minute, as Dembele once again put on a high-level solo performance that Szczesny could only watch. At the beginning of the second half, both teams made substitutions. Juventus suddenly equalized in the 52nd minute, Moise Keane easily scored and continued to score. Previously, Locatelli had worked hard to create favorable conditions for the player.
Subsequently, when Barcelona replaced several main players on the field, they completely took control of the game. However, the Spanish team was so unlucky.

The plot doesn’t stop there. In the 82nd minute, it was Club America’s turn to take a penalty. Goalkeeper Lu Nin successfully saved the first goal, but the referee thought that the “goalkeeper” on Real Madrid’s side had gone too fast and made a mistake, and decided to let the Mexican team counterattack. This time, Alvaro Fidalgo made no mistakes and tied at 2-2.
This was the first time that the Mo people did not lose in the face of the white eagle. As for Real Madrid, they have yet to claim their first victory on the 2022 summer tour.
