La Liga champions Real Madrid faced arch-rivals Barcelona on Saturday night in Las Vegas and the Catalans' new signing Raphinha scored a wonder goal to help his team win the El Classico 1-0. Just before the halftime, the friendly between Madrid and Barca heated up as some players from both the teams squared up.

The incident took place when Jordi Alba brought down Vinicius Jr., who made a high-speed move to face Ter Stegen one-on-one. But the brawl took a massive turn as Real's Rodrygo angrily confronted Barca's captain Sergio Busquets, who earlier tried to tackle the Brazilian.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had to intervene to maintain peace in the ground, however, Ronald Araujo and Antonio Rudiger came face-to-face and had to be separated.

Watch the video:

Evidently, Raphinha launched a wonder strike as Barcelona scored their first goal in the 27th minute. After that, Araujo was seen running on the right flank and dribbled out Rudiger to cross the ball in the back of the nets. It is being reported that this instance started a fight between the two footballers after their teammates.

Watch how Araujo ran past Rudiger:

Real Madrid was struggling offensively against Barcelona due to the absence of their star striker Karim Benzema. On the other hand, Barcelona were dominant with their attacking play after their latest signing in Robert Lewandowski.

Real Madrid will now face Major League Soccer side Club America on July 27 while Barcelona will take on the likes of Juventus on the same day.
