Barcelona secured a winning end to their 2021/22 preseason campaign with a 3-0 victory over Juventus despite Lionel Messi’s absence.

La Blaugrana hosted the Serie A giants at the Estadi Johan Cruyff as part of their annual Joan Gamper Trophy final, Football Espana reports.

Barcelona’s preparations for the game have been dominated by Lionel Messi’s exit from the club after the Argentinian international delivered an emotional goodbye message to fans.

However, despite the enduring cloud hanging over the club in recent days, Ronald Koeman‘s side impressed right from the start in Catalonia with Memphis Depay continuing his strong recent form with a fine early goal.

The home side picked up where they left off after the restart as Danish star Martin Braithwaite got away from his marker to head home Depay’s corner just before the hour mark.

With Juventus offering little in response, Barcelona added some gloss to the scoreline in added time as Riqui Puig fired home a third.

Koeman and his players will get their La Liga season up and running on August 15 with a home game against Real Sociedad.
