Pre-season El Clasico tie confirmed in the United States

La Liga superpowers Real Madrid and Barcelona will face off in a pre-season El Clasico game next month.

Both squads are not set to return for pre-season training until the start of July, due to the ongoing extended international break, but plans are already underway for their respective build-ups.

La Blaugrana have confirmed they will now face the defending Spanish champions, as part of a four-game warm up tour of the United States.

The age old foes will face off at 65,000 seater Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on July 23, followed by a game against Serie A giants Juventus in the Texan metropolis of Dallas three days later.

Xavi’s charges will also face two US-based sides on their travels, against Inter Miami on July 19, and New York Red Bulls on July 30, before returning to Spain.

The 2022/23 La Liga season is due to start on August 14 with preliminary fixture details announced from June 23 onwards.
