Barcelona kicked off their pre-season preparations on Wednesday with a friendly against local side Olot which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Xavi handed starts to new signings Franck Kessie and Pablo Torre as well as youngsters Ilias Akhomach, Nico Gonzalez, Mika Marmol, Alex Valle and Arnau Casas.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring with a lovely lob from an assist by none other than goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
However, Olot hit back from the penalty spot when Marmol conceded a spot-kick and Olot skipper Eloi netted.
Barcelona’s next friendly is in a week’s time when the Catalans take on Inter Miami in the US.
