Barcelona added another trophy to their cabinet as they came from behind to defeat Arsenal 2-1 at the Joan Gamper cup with a late winner from Luis Suarez.
Uraguaian international, Luis Suarez’s 90th-minute volley condemned Arsenal to a 2-1 loss in their final pre-season game to win the Trophy at the Nou Camp.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang capped a fine first-half performance from Unai Emery’s side with an emphatic opener nine minutes before the interval, lashing an unstoppable effort into the top corner after spinning away from two defenders.
Griezmann had the ball in the Arsenal net two minutes before half-time but his delicate chip was ruled out for offside as the Gunners made it to the break in front.
Ernesto Valverde made no fewer than seven half-time changes and that marked a shift in the momentum in Barcelona’s favour. Carles Alena drew a fingertip save from Bernd Leno, while a stunning goal-line clearance from Joe Willock stopped Griezmann from bundling Alba’s cross home.
