Barcelona vs Pumas UNAM: Live updates, Highlights & emotional tribute to Dani Alves during Joan Gamper Trophy

Barcelona vs Pumas UNAM: Barcelona returns home for their final preseason test of 2022 after a summer tour around the world, as the Catalan giants prepare for the upcoming La Liga season.

On Sunday, the Blaugrana face Mexican side Pumas UNAM at Camp Nou in the annual Joan Gamper Trophy, with the Liga MX squad travelling to face one of the world’s most famous clubs.

It will be a final look at how Xavi believes his best starting lineup should be put together, with the coach afforded a wealth of incredible attacking talent thanks to Barcelona’s prolific offseason. In the attacking third, new signings Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, and Franck Kessie have all made an impact.

Furthermore, new defensive signing Jules Kounde adds another top player to Barcelona’s bulging back line. However, concerns remain about the club’s financial situation: they are currently unable to register all of their new players for La Liga duty.

Tribute to Dani Alves during the match

The defender left Camp Nou this summer, but he was given a final send-off as a visitor on Sunday.

Barcelona organised a touching tribute to Dani Alves ahead of their Joan Gamper Trophy match against Pumas on Sunday. Alves’ second stint at Camp Nou ended this summer, with Barcelona failing to extend his six-month contract beyond the end of the season.

The right-back admitted he was disappointed to leave the club at the time, but he has since signed a one-year contract with Mexican club Pumas.

Alves was honoured for his lengthy service at Barcelona, which included six La Liga titles and three Champions League victories, prior to the two teams meeting in the annual Joan Gamper trophy.
