In the closing ten minutes of their Joan Gamper Trophy final game against Tottenham, Barcelona produced an exciting performance to win 4-2.

Barcelona vs Arsenal

Spurs were left in disbelief after a lackluster Barca performance was enhanced by late goals from Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, and Ez Abde.

Oliver Skipp scored twice to give Ange Postecoglou’s team a 2-1 lead after Robert Lewandowski’s early goal, and they were deserving of that advantage up until the late assault.

However, it was Barcelona who broke down Spurs in the first three minutes to take the lead. Raphinha sprinted down the Barcelona right before crossing expertly for Lewandowski to half-volley in with his left foot.

Giovani Lo Celso’s attempt hit the woodwork, and Postecolgou’s team quickly reacted when Skipp scored.

Ivan Perisic had begun that move with some tenacious play down the Spurs left. Additionally, the Croatian played a part in Skipp’s second goal, which he scored by nodding in a Perisic cross that was only an inch off-target.

Spurs appeared in command. However, it was 16-year-old substitute Lamine Yamal, who entered the game in the final 10 minutes, who changed the outcome. First, he set up the advancing Ferran Torres to score from close range to tie the score at 2, and then he dazzled with an incredible turn before setting up Fati to score the game-winning goal beyond Spurs goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.

The final preseason game between these two teams featured Fermin Lopez tearing apart Spurs once more, allowing Abde the chance to seal the 4-2 victory.

Barcelona’s young stars are led by Lamine Yamal

It is very amazing in and of itself for a player who only entered the game as a substitute in the 80th minute to grab two assists. However, this behavior was excessive for a 16-year-old. After Lamine Yamal was introduced, only a minute had passed before he assisted Ferran Torres, completely changing the course of the game. After a fantastic move, he then duplicated the maneuver, feeding Ansu Fati to make the score 3-2.

After Xavi put his trust in youngsters toward the end of this game, he wasn’t the only one to have a significant impact from the bench. The fourth and final goal, which was a team effort by Fermin Lopez (20) and EZ Abde (21), completed an outstanding evening for Barcelona’s young players.

Postecoglou’s hope for Spurs fades away

Ange Postecoglou had a lot to be happy about in this game before the last 10 minutes’ total defensive collapse. Ivan Perisic turned back the years with a spectacular performance on the left flank, and Oliver Skipp made a compelling argument to start the Premier League season in midfield.

Although it was a Jekyll and Hyde performance, it must be kept in mind that many of the Spurs’ top players sat out this contest. Postecoglou will likely be aware that it may take some time for those old Tottenham scars to heal; that is what the new manager may have learned from this final preseason game.

Despite the fact that it was a Jekyll and Hyde performance, it should be noted that many of the Spurs’ best players rested for this game. Postecoglou may have learned from this final preseason game that it might take some time for the old Tottenham scars to heal, and he will undoubtedly be aware of this.
