The Blancos will get more important minutes under their belt in pre-season when they face Mexican opposition in San Francisco

Real Madrid will not be reading too much into a Clasico friendly defeat to arch-rivals Barcelona, but they will be eager to start building pre-season momentum when facing Club America in the Soccer Champions Tour. The Blancos are set to line up against Mexican opposition at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side claimed La Liga and Champions League crowns last season, with GOAL on hand to bring you all of the information you need to catch a glimpse of how their preparations for the defence of those titles are going in the United States.

Real Madrid squad and team news

Ancelotti has confirmed that talismanic captain Karim Benzema, who hit 44 goals for the Blancos last season, will be involved after sitting out the meeting with Barca with a knock.

Dani Carvajal remains stuck on the sidelines, though, after picking up an ankle problem in training ahead of a Clasico clash in Las Vegas.
