New York Red Bulls vs. Barcelona result: Robert Lewandowski can't buy a goal, but Barca claim 2-0 win

  New York Red Bulls vs. Barcelona result: Robert Lewandowski can't buy a goal, but Barca claim 2-0 win Robert Lewandowski will be looking to score his first Barcelona goal when the Blaugrana take on the New York Red Bulls in a preseason friendly that comes two weeks before the start of the La Liga campaign.For the second straight match it was Ousmane Dembele who was the decisive player in the Barcelona attack. The Frenchman came across the field to combine with Raphinha and then ripped a shot into the far side netting. Memphis Depay took advantage of a defensive miscommunication to round out the scoring with three minutes remaining.

The Blaugrana will start off the campaign with four of its five prized summer acquisitions after successfully registering them just one day before the opening match. In order to pull it off Barcelona had to trigger yet another financial lever to get its books in shape for La Liga to clear the path for Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen, and Franck Kessie to be available to play against Rayo. Jules Kounde's registration is still pending and he won't feature for now.

  Barcelona vs. Pumas live score, updates, highlights from Joan Gamper Trophy match After a summer tour around the globe, Barcelona return home for their final preseason test of 2022 as the Catalan giants gear up for the coming La Liga campaign. © Provided by Sporting News The Blaugrana take on Mexican side Pumas UNAM at Camp Nou on Sunday in the annual Joan Gamper Trophy, with the Liga MX squad making the overseas trip to face one of the world's most famous clubs. It will be a final peek at how Xavi believes his best starting lineup is constructed, the coach afforded a wealth of incredible attacking talent thanks to a prolific offseason for Barcelona.

The new faces will give Barcelona a much better shot at revenge against a Rayo Vallecano side that did the league double over Barca last season with a pair of 1-0 victories. Rayo somehow managed to shut out an attacking line featuring Sergio Aguero in one match and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the other. Rayo's win at the Camp Nou in April was their only victory across the final four months of the season.

The club from the Vallecas section of Madrid finished 12th in the table despite the late-season slip, which they will hope doesn't translate into similar struggles during the coming 2022/23 league campaign.

Barcelona vs. Rayo Vallecano projected lineups

Star signing Robert Lewandowski should lead the line now that he's available. The question is who will support the prolific Polish international on each wing. If preseason is any indication, expect Ousmane Dembele and Raphinha to start on either side of him, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ansu Fati waiting in the wings on the bench. Memphis Depay is expected to depart the club soon and could be excluded from the matchday squad.

In midfield, the Frenkie de Jong transfer saga continues, meaning it's likely that young Pedri and Gavi get the start with the Dutchman remaining on the bench. It remains to be seen whether Xavi prefers natural right-back Sergino Dest at the full-back position, or whether Sergi Roberto will continue to occupy that spot.

Barcelona projected starting lineup (4-3-3): ter Stegen (GK) — Alba, Pique, Araujo, Dest — Pedri, Busquets, Gavi — Raphinha, Lewandowski, Dembele.

Rayo Vallecano finished last season in poor form, winning just two matches through the second half of the campaign. Still, a solid first-half saw them finish 12th in the table, and they will look to turn things back around with a fresh start.

Key to the attack will be Radamel Falcao who scored five goals in the first 13 weeks of last season before losing his place in the starting lineup. The Colombian missed the final preseason match of the summer and it remains to be seen whether he can beat out this year's competition in Sergio Camello, or new arrivals Andres Martin and Sergio Moreno.

  Barcelona vs. Rayo Vallecano live score, updates, highlights & lineups from La Liga 2022/23 FC Barcelona will have all but one of their star acquisitions this summer when they host Rayo Vallecano in the start of the 2022/23 La Liga season during which the Blaugrana will hope to contend for the league title.The first match of the La Liga season will see the Blaugrana face an opponent which defeated it on two occasions in the last campaign. But Barcelona must feel like some of the issues that led to those losses — namely a lack of game-breaking scorers in attack — will produce a different result.

Manager Andoni Iraola is known for chopping and changing his starting lineup, so this is very much subject to change week-to-week. Luca Zidane and Sergi Guardiola, the sons of Zinedine Zidane and Pep Guardiola, both left the club this summer and are no longer with the team.

Rayo Vallecano projected starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Dimitrievski (GK) — Hernandez, Catena, Lejeune, Balliu — U. Lopez, Pozo, Valentin — Trejo — S. Sanchez, Camello.

Barcelona vs. Rayo Vallecano best bet & expert prediction

Odds via DraftKings (USA) & Sports Interaction (Canada)

There's little value in picking Barcelona to win, as they are such heavy favorites that it ruins the experience.

Rayo may have held Barcelona off the scoresheet for two full matches last season, but doing so against the revitalized Blaugrana attack will be a completely different task altogether. The likes of Lewandowski, Dembele, Raphinha, and Aubameyang have all had a fantastic preseason and should be primed to fill the back of the net.

While Rayo is a strong defensive team, that Barcelona front line shouldn't be held in check again, leaving Rayo needing to keep up. The mid-table side is not exactly prolific up front, and Barcelona should come away with a victory and a clean sheet.
