Things weren’t so friendly as Real Madrid and Barcelona players clashed during last night’s pre-season El Clasico in Las Vegas. 

The La Liga rivals met as part of both sides pre-season preparation in the US, but tempers boiled over during Barcelona’s 1-0 win. 

Just before the break, Vinicius Jr. was cynically scythed down by Jordi Alba during a trademark run and it did not go down well with the Brazilian. 

Vinicius Jr. wasn’t happy with a tackle from Jordi Alba and sparked a brawl between the sides

The Real Madrid star and team-mate Rodyrgo got into a tussle with Barca’s Sergio Busquets over the tackle, that sparked into a fracas involving a number of players pushing and shoving each other. 

Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard tried to act as peacemaker by holding Busquets back while the Barca icon grabbed a handful of Vinicius’ shiny new Real shirt. 

Madrid’s new recruit from Stamford Bridge Antonio Rudiger was also involved in the squabble between the two El Clasico rivals, and got into a bit of a scrap with Barca’s Ronald Araujo. 

The game was won by a sensational strike from Barcelona’s new signing from Leeds Raphinha 

The match marked the first appearance of new star Robert Lewandowski in a Barcelona shirt 

A crowd of 61,299 fans packed into the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, to see Barcelona get the better of their old rivals. 

The match winner coming from Barca’s new signing Raphinha, who hit a stunning strike into the top corner midway through the first half. 

Robert Lewandowski made his first appearance in Barcelona colours, however Real were still without talisman Karim Benzema. 

His absence was felt too, as Carlo Ancelotti’s men failed to register a shot on target, despite boasting a team featuring Hazard, Vinicius and Rodrygo.
