Chelsea vs Barcelona: Lampard’s Men Defeat La Liga Champions

Frank Lampard

Chelsea ran out as 2-1 winners against Barcelona in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday.

Tammy Abraham pounced on Jorginho’s intercepted pass to go round Marc Ter-Stegen and make it 1-0 in the first half.

Although the Spanish giants tried to fight their way back into the match, the Blues made it 2-0 late in the game, thanks to Ross Barkley.

There was still time for Ivan Rakitic to pull one back for Barca, who were without most of their top stars.

It is Frank Lampard’s second win since taking over at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had previously beaten St Patrick’s Athletic 4-1, before suffering a shock 1-0 loss to Kawasaki Frontale.
