Tammy Abraham, who enjoyed a prolific spell on loan at Aston Villa last season, opened the scoring in the 34th minute.
But Jorginho's nasty lunge on Griezmann was the talk of the first half. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
Griezmann down grabbing his knee. Looks like he's in some pain after colliding with Jorginho.- Robbie Dunne (@robbiejdunne) July 23, 2019
That Jorginho tackle on Griezmann is fucking awful.
Pre-season is laid back, but we still need to be giving out cards for tackles. No problem with no yellows for things like shirt pulls, but tackles need sanctioning. That's a red card challenge.

What a laughably-bad tackle that was by Jorginho on Griezmann.

That was a nasty challenge from Jorginho. They both went in sliding, but Jorginho had his studs up and went right at Griezmann. #FCBarcelona #CFC #FCBCHE #RakutenCup
