Barca missed a string of chances to add to their tally, with Robert Lewandowski forced to wait for his first goal for his new club once again, before Memphis finally added the second late in the second half after Daniel Edelman had been sent off for the hosts.

Xavi made five changes at the break, but Lewandowski stayed on and the chances kept coming. His deflected effort was tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Ryan Meara, on at half-time, before another save brought a wry smile from Lewandowski, aware that this might not be his night.

He was eventually substituted after 72 minutes but Barca remained in control. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed the target after a quick free-kick and Ansu Fati bent wide after a great run by Alejandro Balde.
