The K-League All-Star team were easily beaten 5-2 by Spanish champions Barcelona on Wednesday night.

The Seoul World Cup Stadium played host to the friendly with 30,000 fans in attendance and it began with a 1st minute goal to Choi Sung-kuk who tapped home into an empty net after Barcelona keeper Jose Pinto advanced but was beaten.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic hit back five minutes later for Barcelona before Lee Dong-gook put the K-League All-Stars back in front just after the half-hour mark.

The 36th minute saw another change of score as the Spaniards made it 2-2 through Argentine Lionel Messi who only entered the field of play four minutes earlier. The superstar added a second two minutes before the break with a clever move to beat keeper Jung Sung-ryong to make it 3-2.

Victor Sanchez netted a fourth for Barcelona in the second term before Tello grabbed a fifth in the 84th minute.
