After conquering Europe against all odds last season, Real Madrid are finally set to kick off their new campaign. Carlo Ancelotti’s side will travel to the United States to participate in pre-season games, and the club officially announced the squad for the tour earlier today.

During their three-week stay overseas, Los Blancos will participate in three games. They will kick off their season with an El Clasico against Barcelona at the Allegiant Stadium on Saturday before travelling to face Club America on Tuesday.

The final game will be at the Rose Bowl Stadium when the Men in White face off against Juventus.

Karim Benzema is already in the US and will join his teammates directly before the Clasico. That said, his participation in the game against Barcelona is in doubt as the manager does not wish to risk any injuries to his star player.

New signings Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger have been included in the list and will be given a chance to prove their value. Given the impressive starts the duo have had in training, it would not be surprising to see both the players make their debut against Barcelona. 

Real Madrid will take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the first official game of the season in the UEFA Super Cup. Their league opener will be against newly promoted Almeria on 14th August.

Goalkeepers: Courtois, Lunin, Luis López and Lucas Cañizares.
Defenders: Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Vallejo, Nacho, Rüdiger, Mendy, Odriozola and Tobías. Midfielders: Kroos, Modrić, Casemiro, Valverde, Lucas V., Tchouameni, Ceballos and Camavinga.
Attackers: Hazard, Benzema, Asensio, Vini Jr., Rodrygo, Mariano and Latasa.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
