Tammy Abraham and Ross Barkley were both on target for Chelsea as they secured a 2-1 victory over Laliga Champions, Barcelona during their pre-season friendly game at the Saitama Stadium in Japan.
38 minutes into the game, a terrible mistake by Sergio Busquets allowed Jorginho to pounce, as he managed to divert the pass into Abraham. He takes an excellent first touch to round Ter Stegen and, despite slipping slightly after that, he still managed to turn home.
It was incredibly slack play from Sergio Busquets, who was duly punished by Jorginho. The Italy midfielder had pressed up high, and did well to force the ball into Abrham’s path.
Abraham’s goal was scored with his third touch in the box, his second been the one he used to get the better of Ter Stegen.
81 minutes on, Barkley made it 2-0 for the Blues. The midfielder, who had been impressive since he came on had a goal to cap a fine performance. He created space brilliantly on the edge of the area, before curling in a fine finish just inside of the left-hand upright.
90′ + 1′ Rakitic makes it 2-1 with an exquisite finish from 25 yards out, thumps in a fantastic strike that whistles beyond Kepa and into the top corner.
