Ernesto Valverde's stint as the manager of Barcelona is off to the perfect start. The Spaniard has won his first ever El Clasico and will be hoping that it will be the first of many.
Messi gave the Catalan giants an early lead before Rakitic doubled the lead only a couple of minutes later. Real Madrid pulled one back through Kovacic before Asensio equalized. The second half started the same way as the first one, as Pique put the Camp Nou outfit ahead, poking home Neymar's cross. Zinedine Zidane's side tried their best to find a breakthrough but were denied by some good goalkeeping by Jasper Cillessen.
The two sides meet again in about a fortnight's time, until then we will have to make do with this.

90+2' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Full-Time: Real Madrid 2-3 Barcelona
Barcelona are the winners of the 2017 International Champions Cup by beating Real Madrid 3-2 in the final. 
...
Is there late drama on the cards?
...
90' 2 minutes of added time.

Barcelona are happy to keep hold of the ball and see off the remaining minutes. More urgency is required from Los Blancos.
...
84' INCHES WIDE BY CEBALLOS!!!
Vasquez cuts in from the right before laying it off for Ceballos, who tries to curl a vicious effort into the top corner. He gets the connection behind it but fails to get the required bend as it flies past the far post of Cillessen.
...
81' CILLESSEN WITH AN OUTSTANDING SAVE TO DENY ISCO. The Spaniard went on a run cutting in from the left, the former Malaga man, gets to the edge of the box and tries to curl one into the bottom corner. It was destined for the bottom corner but for the outstretched arm of Cillessen. WHAT A SAVE!!
