The SOCCER CHAMPIONS TOUR preseason match between the two teams will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, USA. In addition to Real Madrid and Manchester United, the SOCCER CHAMPIONS TOUR will feature six other teams – Barcelona, Arsenal, AC Milan and Juventus – on August 3.
In the first match of the pre-season, Real Madrid faced AC Milan and came back from two goals down in the first half with three goals in the second half. Jude Bellingham, who made his first appearance in a Real Madrid shirt, stood out, while Federico Valverde paved the way for the comeback with a multi-goal performance. It will be interesting to see if 2005 ‘Turquoise God’ Arda Güller, who did not feature in the previous game, will make his Real Madrid debut against United.
United will be looking to build on the momentum of their preseason wins over Leeds, Lyon, and Arsenal. Ahead of the Real Madrid game, today’s (Wednesday, June 26) match against Wrexham will be dominated by U-21 players. Bruno Fernandez, who has been named United’s captain since the start of the season, scored the opening goal in the 2-0 win over Arsenal. It will be interesting to see if new goalkeeper Andre Onana makes his first preseason start.
Meanwhile, Barcelona, who are chasing a second straight season at the top of La Liga, and Arsenal, who have bolstered their squad with the additions of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, and Willian Timber, face off at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium. It will be interesting to see how many of Barcelona’s players return to full fitness after missing their first preseason game with stomach bugs. The preseason Arsenal vs. Barcelona match will kick off at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27. For live coverage of this and other key international preseason matches, tune in to SPOTV ON and SPOTV NOW.
