Barcelona vs Napoli, Friendly Pre-season Results: Final score 4-0, DSG trio result as Barca dominate the preseason finals


Barcelona ended the 2019/20 pre-season and boy what the final was: Blaugrana brought a stellar performance and a 4-0 victory in the second friend against Napoli. The audience, who went to the Big House, saw a team of Barça full of confidence that stifled their opponents and scored incredible goals to finish off the season and give its fans a lot of encouragement for the new season. That was seriously good.


Barça made a spectacular start to the game, smothering Napoli with his high pressure and delivering the ball really well in the midfield to create chances. Griezmann missed the best chance of a one-on-one time with the goalkeeper, but Suárez and Dembélé also had chances to take Barça forward.

Miami's defense problems were not apparent in the first half, as high pressure killed Napoli's attacks before they even started, and Blaugrana defense was much more vigilant to stop Napoli forward whenever they had the ball.

Although there were no goals, the first half ended with a fantastic performance by the Catalans, who fully deserved the halftime lead and were quite unhappy not to have one.


Barça's performance deserved goals and they came. Many of them. Very fast. In the first 20 minutes of the final period Luis Suarez (first on the rebound, then with a rocket to the top corner), Griezman (with a touch and his first goal for the club) and Dembele (with a rocket to the bottom corner) made 4-0 and not only achieved a win for Barça but also gave fans some moments with special quality and team play.

The adrenaline rush of spectacle quickly disappeared when Barca made five changes to the 65-minute mark that killed the rhythm and continuity of the first block, but we were able to watch Arthur, Vidal and Coutinho in action for the first time in pre-season training. All three seemed hungry and sharp, though they were clearly lacking in fitness, which is understandable.

Barca continued to press and create chances with alternates, with Abel Ruiz and Rafinha particularly dangerous in the final minutes. Unfortunately, no more goals were scored, but the final whistle ended with a brilliant performance by Barca in the preseason finale. If the team that plays in the first 65 minutes is the same one that starts next week, we're looking for a good debut in La Liga,
