Barcelona pull away from Real Madrid in Dallas
Barcelona progressively pulled ahead of Real Madrid in a game that appeared to be heading towards a confrontation. It took all 90 minutes
The game started civilly, and both sides showed the American audience why they are world-class with amazing runs and great control.
Ousmane Dembelé scored in the 15th minute with a fantastic cross that Courtois couldn't save.
Madrid had chances, including a penalty three minutes later after a cross hit Araujo. Vinicius Jr.'s shot hit the crossbar.
25 shots were taken, however only 5 were on target. Five shots on target and no goals is surprising for Real Madrid. Real Madrid sometimes
appeared "salao" or unlucky. They kept hitting the post, crossbar, and keeper's back, but nothing went in. It's not always your day.
Barcelona was contrary. While they had some unlucky shots, the blaugrana shot 12 times, 7 on target, and scored half of them.
It wasn't all theirs. Fermín López's 85th-minute shot from outside the box scored their second. After that, a Ferran Torres tip caught Courtois out
Both teams will play another US game before returning to Spain to prepare
for the long season. Barcelona will be more buoyant. The first El Clásico of the year is 3-0.
