No panic as Barca lose to Milan - fans are loving Riqui Puig and get excited about next season: reactions
- Barcelona were defeated by Milan in their last match of the US preseason tour
- The Catalans have beaten Tottenham on penalties and lost to Roma and Milan
Andre Silva managed to score the late winner for Milan in an otherwise unlucky match for the Italians as Barcelona have been dominating throughout the game.
However, Blaugrana didn't manage to score even once and let the Portuguese striker take the win for Milan.
The majority of Barca fans and experts paid no mind to the final result noticing many positive signs in the team's display:
Guys calm down. At the end of the day, it's just a friendly. The purpose of these games are to experiment with the squad and get their fitness back. Chill out, and stop the knee jerk reaction.— Number 10 (@AmazingNumber10) August 5, 2018
People were happy for La Masia boys:
A lot of canteranos getting minutes this preseason which has been great. While some of them have shown better performances (and gotten more minutes), it’s important to nuance and not overreact. Most of them haven’t had a season at Barça B yet. Pimi’s B Barça B will be so fun.— La Masia (@Youngcules) August 5, 2018
Some were even happy that Barca lost implying that the fans shouldn't have too high expectations:
Good, we lost. Can’t have Barça fans over excited with preseason wins.— BarcAddicts (@BarcAddicts) August 5, 2018
La Masia star Riqui Puig impressed everyone:

The Riqui Puig love in continues in San Jose. Daniele Massaro (who scored twice vs. Barça in 1994 European Cup final) requested his shirt after the game and has compared him to Iniesta.— Samuel Marsden (@samuelmarsden) August 5, 2018
Barca midfield looks nice, indeed:
Coutinho Arthur Busquets in midfield will be unfucking reallllll— Monzi (cvg) (@Magic0fBarca) August 5, 2018
Some suggest that Sergi Roberto should stick to the right-back role:
Watch Roberto try to pass between the lines or in tight space and you’ll see exactly why he’ll never make it as a midfielder at Barça.— fabiano™ (@XaviTempo_) August 5, 2018
Finally, Cules seem to start showing more love to Jasper Cillessen:
Jasper should start in the Supercup— ā (@ItsBarzaboy) August 5, 2018
