La Liga champion Barcelona beat Premier League champion Leicester City 4-2 in a pre-season friendly in Sweden on Wednesday with Munir El Haddadi and Ahmed Musa scoring a brace each for their respective sides.

Lionel Messi's sumptuous pass set up the first of Munir's two first-half goals while Luis Suarez netted in between as the Spanish champion exposed the Foxes' defence. Nigerian winger Musa, signed from CSKA Moscow, came out with all guns blazing as one of seven second-half changes for Leicester to score after a lightning 50-yard solo run and shot on 47 minutes.

He then won and converted a penalty after 66 minutes. But with the scores at 3-2 Barcelona then sealed the International Champions Cup tournament match with a late winner from Rafa Mujica.
