ICC Preview: Real Madrid vs Arsenal

One of the many heavyweight matchups of the tournament pits LaLiga against the Premier League as Real Madrid take on Arsenal at FedExField in Landover. 

The last time these two teams were pitted against each other was during the Round of 16 of the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League. 

Arsenal moved on to the quarter-finals after holding Real Madrid to a draw at home and winning 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu thanks to Thierry Henry. 

Now thirteen years later, the two sides meet again with entirely new squads and different playing styles. 

The Gunners are coming into tonight’s game with a very impressive success rate having not lost one pre- season match so far beating Colorado Rapids 3-0, Bayern Munich 2-1 and Fiorentina 3-0. 

Los Blancos, on the other hand, had some trouble during their opening match of the tournament losing 3-1 to Bundesliga title holders, Bayern Munich and will be looking to turn things around.

In terms of possible lineups, Unai Emery’s side will probably keep the same lineup that has so far been very successful throughout the tournament and will want to end their pre-season tournament with a perfect 4-0 record. 

Zinedine Zidane’s  could do the opposite, however, and the Frenchman might drastically change the starting XI in hopes of claiming their first win and finding a good set-up for the newly constructed squad. 

Looking at the rosters, both teams have young goal-scoring talent who are ready to prove themselves for their respective clubs. 

Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah has been one of the standout performers for the English side having scored three of their eight goals this tournament and will look to grab more against another big name club. 

Real Madrid’s Rodygo Goes scored the team’s only goal in their ICC opener with a sublime free-kick and will look to impress if he is given more minutes on the pitch.

Mesut Ozil will also be in the spotlight as the midfielder plays against his former club for the first time since being traded in 2013. 

Whether it is English or Spanish football that comes out victorious, this heavyweight matchup will surely be an entertaining one football fans won’t want to miss. 

Real Madrid vs. Arsenal will kick off at 7:00 p.m. EST at FedExField, Landover, Maryland.
