Barcelona kicked off their summer tour of the US with a resounding 6-0 win over Inter Miami in Fort Lauderdale.

The Blaugrana ran rampant over an MLS side featuring Romeo Beckham and Harvey Neville, as well as former Real Madrid star Gonzalo Higuain.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring at the end of a well-worked Barça move, dinking goalkeeper Nick Marsman with 19 minutes on the clock.

Raphinha then opened his Barcelona account with a well-taken volley at the end of Alex Balde's pinpoint cross, before Ansu Fati lashed home an emphatic third just before the half-time break.

After the interval, Memphis Depay's driven corner was turned in by Gavi, and the Dutchman got in on the act himself after swivelling away from defender Damion Lowe and finding the bottom corner.

Ousmane Dembele rounded off the scoring almost immediately from the resulting kick-off, similarly finding the corner at the end of a mazy dribble.

Xavi's men next take on bitter rivals Real Madrid in Las Vegas on 23 July before facing Juventus in Dallas three days later.

Barcelona round off their US tour against New York Red Bulls on 30 July and jet back to Catalonia to play Mexican side UNAM in the Joan Gamper Trophy.
