While Barcelona have been attracting a lot of attention for Neymar’s transfer saga, they have been right-on-the-money in their pre-season fixtures, and its all thanks to the hard work Ernesto Valverde’s men have put in the training sessions.
On Sunday, Barcelona beat rivals Real Madrid 3-2 in El Clasico, thanks to goals from Lionel Messi, Ivan Rakitic and Gerard Pique.
Barca will now face Brazilian club Chapecoense in their last pre-season friendly game at the Camp Nou.

Back in March Neymar stole the show as Barcelona stunned Europe by completing an historic Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazilian striker, who inspired the Catalans to the 6-1 victory they needed to overturn a 4-0 first-leg defeat and reach the quarter-finals, is now being strongly linked with a move to PSG.
With a world-record £199 million transfer in the offing, here’s a look back at that remarkable performance at the Camp Nou.
Barca had done their best to fight back against the plucky Parisians but with seven minutes remaining they were 5-3 down on aggregate and heading out of the last 16 with their heads bowed.
Step forward Neymar. The 25-year-old was chosen to take a free-kick from the left-hand corner of the box and, from fully 25 yards, he deftly whipped the ball beyond Kevin Trapp for 4-1 on the night.
Luis Suarez was determined to help Barca follow through and grab the goal that would at least level the tie – even if PSG were to progress on the away-goal rule anyway.
He went down in the box under pressure from Marquinhos and rather than give the ball to Lionel Messi, who had notched an earlier spot-kick, he asked Neymar to take the penalty, which was duly converted to inspire a nerve-racking finale.
Barca, scenting the most unlikely of triumphs, threw everything at their scrambling French opponents and were rewarded for their determined approach in stoppage time.
Fans of both teams in the packed Nou Camp held their breath when Neymar swept a cross from the left into the path of the onrushing Sergi Roberto, who clipped home to spark wild celebrations.

Barca fan Woods, who underwent his fourth back surgery since 2014 in April and is unlikely to play any more golf in 2017, looked in good spirits as he was joined by his children and their friends in the photo.
