Raphinha made a brilliant start to his FC Barcelona career in the 6-0 win over Inter Miami on Tuesday night in the first friendly on the US tour.
The Brazilian forward played the first half, scoring himself and providing two assists for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ansu Fati.
After participating in the three Barcelona goals Raphinha was the image of happiness when the game ended. The Brazilian was euphoric and is counting the minutes until the Clasico against Real Madrid on Saturday.
“We are better than Real Madrid and of course I’m really excited to face them,” he said.
Raphinha also hailed his new teammates. “To play with these players there are at Barcelona makes everything easier. I still have to adapt myself to how the team plays, but they’re helping me and I hope to be able to help them too.”
