? MATCH REPORT: FC Barcelona beat Manchester United by the minimum in second stop on US tour https://t.co/3uZixmoRfw #BarçaUStour pic.twitter.com/1wop6YSJ1A — FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) July 27, 2017But from there Barcelona dominated. De Gea denied Neymar from close range in the 28th, but had no answer for the Brazilian three minutes later. Valencia had got control of a pass from Messi, but Neymar was there to regain the ball, turning in close quarters and firing past de Gea to the delight of the Barcelona fans among the 82,000-strong crowd at FedExField -- home of the NFL's Washington Redskins. Three minutes before the break de Gea parried Suarez's scissor-kick to keep it 1-0 to Barcelona at halftime. Both coaches rang the changes at halftime, with Valverde replacing 10 players -- only leaving Cillessen in goal.
Jose Mourinho made five changes in his Manchester United side, and the second half moved at a slower, less fluent pace. Anthony Martial, Andreas Pereira and Pogba all threatened, but Manchester United were unable to find an equalizer. The match was the last of Manchester United's US tour -- which included wins over Real Madrid, Manchester City and Major League Soccer's Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles Galaxy. They are due to take on Valerenga in Oslo on Sunday and then Sampdoria in Ireland before facing Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on August 8. Barcelona, meanwhile will take on Spanish rivals Real Madrid in a pre-season "Clasico" in Miami on Saturday -- apparently still uncertain just how long they will have Neymar to rely on.
