Real Madrid were beaten 3-0 by Barcelona in a pre-season friendly match in the United States.

Barca took the lead 15 minutes into the game, courtesy of Ousmane Dembele.

Real Madrid had the opportunity to fire back just after five minutes, but Vinicius Jr missed a penalty that should have turned the game around.

The Brazilian saw his shot hit the post – thus missing a vital chance to level the scores.

Reports per Relevo claim that Luka Modric will be first choice penalty taker henceforth, Rodrygo second and then Vinicius.

Carlo Ancelotti will hope to see his side bounce back from the defeat in Dallas as they face Juventus on Thursday, August 3.
