Barcelona beat Real Madrid 3-2 in the first friendly El Clasico since 1991 – and only the second meeting of the clubs outside Spain – to win the International Champions Cup.

A crowd of 66,014 in Miami on Saturday watched goals from Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic give Barca an early lead before Mateo Kovacic and Marco Asensio pulled Real level.

The spectators at the Hard Rock stadium were then treated to a prolonged half-time break with music, lights and fireworks more akin to the Super Bowl.

When the game eventually restarted, Gerard Pique steered in a Neymar free-kick to give last season’s Copa del Rey winners victory over the reigning Spanish and European champions.
