Barcelona tried harder and they arrive with a lot of danger to Keylor Navas goal, but they weren’t able to tie the game.
Actually, the best chances arrived for Los Blancos and Lucas Vázquez hit the post in the 32nd minute. Zidane’s side had the ball, showed all the skills and feel much better than the rival.

It was the best end for a great first half performance.
In the second half, Piqué was substituted because he had some physical problems and Messi replied with a clear chance, hitting the bar.

They need some signings in the end of the summer transfer window if they want to compete with Los Blancos after Neymar departure. It wasn’t their day and Luis Suárez hit again the bar after a couple of great saves from Keylor Navas.
The game died without many chances at the end because Los Blancos were already celebrating the title in the halftime. All are good news for Zidane in this start of the season.
