The Catalan giants and 2021-22 La Liga runners-up are fresh off of a 6-0 victory Tuesday night in South Florida over Inter Miami in the first leg of the U.S. tour. Barça’s six goals in the comfortable win came from six different players. In the first half it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raphinha and Ansu Fati, while Gavi, Memphis and Ousmane Dembele got on the scoresheet after the break.

Meanwhile, their ‘eternal rivals, Real Madrid – the defending La Liga and Champions League winners – are taking part in their first competitive contest since the Champions League final on May 28. 2021-22 was a dream season for Madrid, who topped the Spanish top flight by 13 points (over Barça), and beat Manchester City, PSG and Liverpool en route to their record 14th European Cup/Champion League trophy. All while Barça toiled.

Barcelona, however– having now ‘activated financial levers’ – are determined to return to the top of the table. To that end, the Blaugrana have added, on free transfers, defender Andreas Christensen (from Chelsea) and midfielder Franck Kessie (from AC Milan), splashed out more than €90 million ex-Leeds winger Raphinha and former Bayern Munich super-striker Robert Lewandowski, who would have been a good bet to make his Barça debut in Vegas even before the big acquisition of the January window, Ferran Torres, was ruled out.

In some encouraging news for the Blaugrana, it’s being reported that talismanic center back Gerard Piqué, who’s been sidelined with a thigh injury since the beginning of May, is once again fit, and could return to the pitch in this contest. 

Madrid, meanwhile, despite seeing their four-year gambit to sign Kylian Mbappé (for now) go down in flames, have made significant additions of their own in defensive midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni (€80 million from Monaco) and ex-Chelsea center back Antonio Rüdiger, who signed as a free agent.

After this Sin City showdown with Real Madrid, Xavi’s side will be off to Dallas, Texas, to square off against Juventus on July 26, and then New Jersey, where they’ll take on the NY Red Bulls on July 30. They’ll then return to Catalunya to face Mexican side Pumas (now featuring Barça legend Dani Alves!) in the Joan Gamper Trophy on August 7, before kicking off the 2022-23 La Liga campaign at home against Rayo Vallecano on August 13.

As for Madrid, again, they are only just kicking off their preseason slate. Following this matchup against Barça, Los Blancos will be off to San Francisco, to take on Mexican side Club América on July 26, before themselves taking Juventus on July 30, at the Rose Bowl, in Pasadena, California. They will then return to Europe, to take on Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup on August 10, in Helsinki, Finland, before kicking off their own La Liga campaign on August 14, away to Almería.

Barcelona expected starting lineup: Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Christensen, Alba; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Raphinha, Aubameyang, Ferran Torres

Real Madrid expected starting lineup: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Alaba; Tchouameni, Casemiro, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Junior

Scoreline prediction: FC Barcelona 3-3 Real Madrid

Even under the pressure of league play last season, these two teams combined for seven goals over two meetings, with Baça actually getting the best of Madrid, by a 5-2 aggregate tally. And there’s even more attacking talent on hand now. In a hyped-up exhibition environment, in front of a huge, boisterous Vegas crowd, the this game is going to produce fireworks. Given the upgrades that each side has made, this once again looks like an evenly-matched top-two.
