After starting off with an intense attacking effort, Barcelona was unable to stay ahead of the Italian club. Rafinha scored the opening goal just after the six minute mark. Stephan El Shaarawy leveled the score just before the half. Barcelona were missing most first team starters while Roma enjoyed having most of the senior squad on hand for the tour.
Malcom would open the scoring in the second half and played the with the grace of a seasoned pro. He almost netted another shortly after but his effort was not on target. Alessandro Florenzi converted for the Romans before a massive change in personnel would make things sweeter for the Serie A club. Bryan Cristante scored before Diego Perotti scored on a penalty.
