If there was ever a good time for Fiorentina to beat Barca, it’s probably in this International Champions Cup friendly. The Catalans were the best team in Europe last season, but are currently playing without Messi and Neymar.
Betting: Fiorentina v Barcelona
In previous matches in the same competition, the Viola have beaten Benfica on penalties and lost 4-2 to PSG, so they will have to step it up if they want to defeat the Spanish champions.
Despite losing to Manchester United and Chelsea this past week Barca are still a very strong team, with or without the Argentine and Brazilian forwards, and should be considered favourites against the side from Florence.
Predicted Winner: Barcelona
