“Barcelona” held only two control fights this summer and looked extremely uncertain. First, the Catalans were defeated by Chelsea with a score of 1:2, and then they barely outplayed Kobe (2:0). The club was strengthened by a number of football players, led by the acquisition of Griezmann.
Arsenal at the International Champions Cup held three fights, looking very good. The Gunners suffered the only defeat from Real Madrid (2:3), and even then only in the penalty shootout. The main goalkeeper Leno was injured, but the Germans do not yet have a decent replacement.
