Lionel Messi fever hits South Africa as Barcelona beat Mamelodi

Superstar Lionel Messi, who did not warm up with Barca before the game, was introduced with 20 minutes to go.

The match came three days after Barcelona suffered a stunning 5-4 defeat at lowly Levante in their second last La Liga match, robbing them of a chance to complete the season unbeaten.

With such achievements, a superb crowd, and a mouthwatering team up their sleeves it seemed as if Barcelona were up for a treat in South Africa.

Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes scored for the Spanish champions in a match they easily controlled. But we also took the ball from them, pressed them, and they kicked the ball outside a few times.




Earlier, Percy Tau had missed a great opportunity to beat Ter Stegen in Barca goal while Denis Suarez headed against the post off Dembele cross. The second half started pretty much the same as the first half with Barcelona's coach Ernesto Valverde changing most of his players. The goal seemed to have spiked some fear in the Sundowns team as they were making sloppy passes and clearances that could have increased the gap within the first ten minutes.

This time round, Kennedy Mweene was in goal after replacing Onyango.

SA league champions Sundowns host their Spanish counterparts in the highly anticipated Nelson Mandela Centenary Cup encounter and the uncertainty over Messi's availability had been a huge source of unease for the nation's soccer lovers.

"The match was originally fixed for Tuesday, 15 May 2018 but was postponed at the request of Mamelodi Sundowns", it said.
