Barcelona emerged winners on their first visit to Africa with a 3-1 win over South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB stadium on Wednesday.

The game was to celebrate the posthumous100th birthday of African icon Nelson Mandela.

Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Andre Gomes scored for Barcelona against the South African league victor in a game that formed part of South Africa's celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who died in 2013.

His every touch drew huge applause and Sundowns defender Wayne Arendse was beaming after the final whistle having exchanged shirts with the Argentine maestro. "I think the difference is like that between the rand and the euro, to sum it up". They surprised us a little bit because they were very fast.

Arendse taking home the most prized possession on the night.

The 30-year-old led the Catalans to a double this season but their unbeaten run came to a rude shock last weekend after losing 5-4 to Levante in their second to the last La Liga game.

Ivorian Soumahoro was also at fault for the second goal, failing to cut off a Denis Suarez pass on 19 minutes and Luis Suarez made no mistake from close range. Soon after his inception in the sixty-sixth minute Barcelona took no time to test Mweene and he failed as Barcelona's Andre Gomes made it three as a result of a costly mistake by Hlompho Kekana.

Sibusiso Vilakazi scored Sundowns' goal late on but Barca was in cruise control. It wasn't long before Valverde introduced sensational striker Lionel Messi into the lovely game much to the thrill of the crowd.
