Barcelona beat South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns in friendly match

Sibusiso Vilakazi scored Sundowns' goal late on but Barca was in cruise control.

Talking about the upcoming match, Masandawana head coach Pitso Mosimane said that he is looking forward to come up against one of the best football teams in world.

The Barcelona players waved to the fans and photographers as they made their way to the bus ahead of tonight's clash at the FNB Stadium.

"I'm proud of Masandawana, they played well they played the way I wanted them to play".

And the Catalan giants got off to a flying start as Dembele received the ball from outside the Sundowns area and curled his shot into the top left-hand corner to give Barca the lead after just two minutes.

Up next for Barcelona is a home tie against Real Sociedad in their final league game of the season.

Without him, the Blaugrana lost away to Levante, a result which ended their unbeaten run in La Liga.

Goals from Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andres Gomes guided the LaLiga champions to a 3-1 win in the Nelson Mandela Centenary Cup.
