El Clasico: Barcelona vs Real Madrid

The MetLife Stadium prepares to witness a showdown between two giants. FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are no strangers to intense matchups. This clash on American soil adds a new dimension to their age-old rivalry, as fans in the USA eagerly anticipate the opportunity to witness these powerhouse clubs go head-to-head.

One of the most intriguing aspects of this pre-season Clásico is the potential debut of a new coach at Barcelona. With both clubs being known for their high-octane performances and tactical superiority, all eyes will be on how the new boss navigates his team through this pivotal match against their arch-rivals.

Manchester City vs. AC Milan: A Tactical Battle

In the game between Man City and AC Milan, fans can expect to witness a tactical masterclass from Pep Guardiola. Renowned for his innovative strategies and calculated approach to the game, Guardiola’s presence alone brings an added layer of intrigue to any match he is involved in. Despite being a friendly fixture, the opportunity to see Guardiola’s methods in action should not be underestimated for the insights it can offer into his coaching philosophy.

On the other side, AC Milan presents an interesting challenge for Manchester City, as they have historically been a force to be reckoned with in European football. While recent seasons may not have seen AC Milan at their peak performance-wise, they still possess the inherent strength and skill that makes them a formidable opponent on any given day.

Some Players May Be Absent

One of the attractive points of a pre-season tour is being able to see the big names in action, but this time some players may not make the trip due to the overlap with the 2024 Olympics in France.

Names like Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni will not make the trip. And if Kylian Mbappé signs for Madrid in the summer, unfortunately, we will not see him in the USA since he expressed his intention to represent his country in the upcoming Olympic Games.
