The start of the new Liga 2022/2023 season is getting closer and closer and the big teams in Spain and Europe are already in full preseason. FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet on Sunday, July 24 at the Allegiant Stadium.
It will be then when we will be able to see one of the most followed clashes in the world along with the new signings of both teams during their US tour.
Robert Lewandowski’s Possible Debut for FC Barcelona
After many weeks of rumors and news about Robert Lewandowski’s transfer to FC Barcelona finally came true. The former Bayern Munich striker said goodbye to his extensive stint in Germany and arrives in LaLiga Santander to continue proving that he still has years of goals ahead of him.
Sunday could be the day chosen for him to play his first minutes as a Blaugrana against Real Madrid.
His presentation as the team’s new player has already taken place in the city of Miami. Now all the club’s fans are waiting to see him in his new shirt.
The truth is that Real Madrid is one of the Polish striker’s favorite victims. During his time in Germany with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, Lewandowski scored up to 6 goals against the Spanish team. Will Sunday be a good occasion to increase the number?
On the other hand, this could also be a good test to see another of the most talked-about reinforcements for FC Barcelona this summer.
Raphinha was signed from Leeds United for just under 60 million, so there will be plenty to look forward to seeing him against a top team. The Brazilian already managed to score a goal and provide two assists in the last match against Inter Miami, which FC Barcelona won by a resounding 0-6.
The truth is that the 2021/2022 season could hardly have gone better for Real Madrid. Champions of LaLiga, the team led by Carlo Ancelotti left for the memory one of the best feats after achieving the Champions League in the way they did.
On the way to the knockout rounds, they left teams like PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester City with spectacular comebacks, before beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final at the Stade de France.
Despite being LaLiga and Champions League champions, Real Madrid has taken advantage of the transfer window to continue to strengthen.
The arrivals of Aurélien Tchouaméni and Antonio Rüdiger will help the team to further strengthen the midfield and defense. Two of last season’s best players have come to reinforce the European champions.
This will be the first game of the preseason for Real Madrid and also of their American tour. Because of that, the pace shown by the white team could be somewhat lower than that of its rival. But anyway, this kind of match usually counts on a large number of changes to avoid players’ fatigue.
Even so, the excitement of an FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid will always be present.
