Barcelona beat Mamelodi Sundowns

Video Lionel Messi arrives in the country

Careless defending gifted European giants Barcelona two goals as they defeated South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 on Wednesday in a friendly game to honour the late Nelson Mandela.

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi came on against Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday evening with just 20 minutes to go, and the Catalan club's manager has now explained why the Argentine made such a short cameo in the match.

Business mogul Patrice Motsepe who relatively organized the match handed over five million Rand to the Nelson Mandela foundation as a way of also celebrating the legacy of Mandela.

Frontier to offer nonstop flight from Omaha to San Antonio
It also means Frontier will become the largest carrier in San Antonio, in regards to destinations served. United Airlines and United Express operate about 4,600 flights a day to 354 airports on five continents.

Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes were all on target for the Spanish champions, with Sibusiso Vilakazi netting a consolation goal for the hosts. They surprised us a little bit because they were very fast. "I think the difference is like that between the rand and the euro, to sum it up".

Ernesto Valverde had been criticised for resting players from the thrilling 5-4 defeat to Levante that saw Barca's unbeaten LaLiga season come undone in the penultimate match of the season. However, Percy Tau managed to get a golden opportunity in the twelfth minute of the game with only the keeper to beat but failed to land it at the back of the net making the job of Barcelona's goalie Andre Ter Stegen a lot easier.

More sloppy defending gave Barcelona a third goal on 67 minutes when an interception set up Gomes to fire past substitute goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene.
