United overcame Zinedine Zidane's men on penalties last weekend, but LaLiga rivals Barca proved a far sterner test as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar impressed in the first half of a match that saw David De Gea shine.

Here are five things we learnt from the International Champions Cup clash on Wednesday night.

Messi then hit the post from the edge of the area before United, at last, got a foothold in the game.

Matic would repay Mourinho's faith by playing a starring role in helping the Blues reclaim the Premier League title in the following season - winning more tackles (101) and making more interceptions (73) than any player in the squad to cement his status as one of the best holding midfielders in the country.

"We have to be better, much better for that objective".

"Another one an attacking player, especially that can play through the wings to give me more attacking options but I never speak about players that belong to other teams".

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has tipped Manchester United to contend for both the Premier and Champions League this season.

He was delighted to see the young players who trained under him at Real are now featuring regularly for the 12-time European champions.

Jose Mourinho's side had the first chance of the match when, in the third minute, Marcus Rashford broke down the left wing with blistering pace to set up new signing Romelu Lukaku with a low cross.

José Mourinho believes Paul Pogba is one of the few Manchester United players at the same level as those of Barcelona and Real Madrid, with the manager saying his team are inferior to both Spanish clubs.
