ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI scored his first Barcelona goal in a 6-0 rout of Mexican side Pumas in the Joan Gamper Trophy pre-season clash on Sunday.

On his Camp Nou bow, the Polish international, who switched from Bayern Munich in the summer, scored after three minutes from a particularly tight angle.

Pedri added the second and fourth goals in the fifth and 19th minutes, sandwiching a strike from Ousmane Dembele.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong completed the rout in the second half.

Lewandowski also played a key part in Pedri’s second goal with an inspired pass to set up the midfielder.

Barcelona begin their La Liga season at home to Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Alvaro Morata, who returned to Atletico Madrid in July after two years on loan at Juventus, scored a hat-trick in Sunday’s friendly against the Italian side in Turin.

The Spain striker struck twice in the first half and then completed his treble on the hour in a match relocated to Turin from Israel because of “security concerns” in the region.
