Barcelona and Madrid to meet in Miami Clasico

Fresh from winning out in the national tournament in Villarreal last week, Barca's under-12 team completed a memorable double by claiming victory in the LaLiga Promises competition in Newark.

The Catalans beat Valencia 2-0 in the last four to seal a date with Madrid, 1-0 winners versus Villarreal in their semi-final. And that meant both teams arrived unbeaten to the showpiece match on Sunday.

Barca took the lead through Jan Molina, but a double from Hugo de Llanos either side of half-time gave Los Blancos the advantage. However, Iker Bravo (who finished as the competition's top scorer with five goals) netted twice, including a late winner from a corner, to give the Blaugrana the trophy.

Barca's youngsters won all six of their matches, scoring nine goals and conceding just two (both of those in the final against Madrid). The victory follows their triumph at the 26th PAMESA LaLiga Promises International Tournament in Villarreal just a week ago.
