Real Madrid take on Barcelona in a pre-season friendly in Dallas on Saturday. Carlo Ancelotti’s team have beaten Milan (3-2) and Manchester United (2-0) to date on their US tour and will be hoping to make it three wins from three against the current La Liga champions.
New signing Jude Bellingham is set to start at the top of the midfield diamond against Xavi’s side ahead of a midfield of Toni Kroos, Eduardo Camavinga and Fede Valverde.
Former Rayo Vallecano left-back Fran García is set to start in Madrid’s back four alongside regulars Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao and David Alaba, while Thibaut Courtois is likely to return between the sticks.
