LIVE Real Madrid VS Club América Football Match Score 27 July 2022
Real Madrid will continue their preparations for the 2022-23 campaign with a pre-season friendly against Mexican side Club America on Tuesday night. Los Blancos will enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 loss to Barcelona on Saturday, while America have taken on Chelsea and Manchester City in friendlies this summer, suffering 2-1 defeats in both fixtures. Real Madrid began their preparations for the new season with a 1-0 loss to Barcelona in El Clasico on Saturday night, with Raphinha scoring the only goal of the contest in Las Vegas.
Los Blancos will now take on Club America and Juventus in their final two friendlies of the summer before facing Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup on August 10; Carlo Ancelotti’s side will then begin their 2022-23 La Liga campaign with an away match against Almeria on August 14. Real Madrid have only made two signings during this summer’s transfer window, bringing in Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger, with both players starting against Barcelona, and Ancelotti has insisted that the club’s transfer business ahead of the new season has been completed.
Los Blancos were too strong for the rest of the competition in Spain’s top flight last season, boasting a record of 26 wins, eight draws and four defeats from their 38 matches to collect 86 points, which saw them finish 13 points ahead of second-place Barcelona. Real Madrid ended the campaign by lifting the European Cup for the 14th time in their history, beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final, while they also had to overcome Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in the competition last term.
America, meanwhile, have faced both Chelsea and Man City in friendlies this summer, losing 2-1 to Chelsea on July 16 before going down by the same scoreline against Pep Guardiola’s side four days later.
Millonetas have won their domestic title on 13 occasions, which is a record, placing them one ahead of Guadalajara when it comes to championships, and they are already four matches into their current season, picking up just four points with a record of one win, one draw and two defeats.
America opened their campaign with a goalless draw against Atlas before losing 3-2 to Monterrey on July 10; they then beat Toluca 1-0 on July 14 but will enter this match off the back of a defeat, losing 2-0 at Tijuana on Saturday, with Lisandro Lopez and Joaquin Montecinos on the scoresheet, which has left them in 15th spot.
Fernando Ortiz’s side signed five new players ahead of their new season, with the standout addition being Jonathan Rodriguez, who led the line against Tijuana on Saturday.
America will relish the chance to take on Real Madrid in a friendly, but they also have an important league game against Leon on August 1, so head coach Ortiz will need to carefully manage the minutes of his players here.
Real Madrid will be keen to put their loss in the El Clasico behind them when they face Mexican outfit Club America on Tuesday night. In the last match, Los Blancos suffered a narrow loss to old foe Barcelona. Despite the clash being a friendly match, both sets of fans would not want to lose that fixture. However, Real Madrid and their supporters have to now move on from that result as they prepare for the new season. On Tuesday night, they will be up against a side, who have already started their campaign in the domestic league. Hence, Club America might have better match fitness and sharpness than the Spanish giants, thereby making it an interesting pre-season contest.
Real Madrid completed a fabulous double last season by winning the league and the Champions League crowns. They got 86 points from 38 games, which was 13 more than second-placed Barcelona in La Liga. Besides, they went on an amazing run in the Champions League, beating Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in the knockout stages before prevailing over Liverpool to lift the famous trophy. On the other hand, Club America’s league season has already started and they are currently sitting 15th in the table, with just four points from four games. Real Madrid have to be the favourites in this clash, however, Club America will be boosted by playing more matches in the summer till now.
Real Madrid have not been that busy in the transfer window, yet they have brought in a couple of quality players. Promising young midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is joined by former Real Madrid centre-back Antonio Rudiger at Santiago Bernabeu. They both started against Barcelona and could retain their place again on Tuesday night. Besides, it looks unlikely they will make any more signings in this window. Meanwhile, Club America signed five new players ahead of their season. Some of them could be involved in this match. With the Mexican side currently playing their regular season, their manager will likely keep an eye out on their upcoming domestic fixture while naming the team for the Real Madrid clash.
Defeat to Barcelona at the Allegiant Stadium would not have sit well with Real Madrid fans, even if the fixture was a club friendly. Los Blancos will arrive in this meeting with vengeance and should make Club America pay. The Mexican outfit has lost four of their last five outings and looks unlikely to put up resistance against the European champions. Moreover, they have only scored thrice in their last four outings, making BTTS an unlikely outcome.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men drew a blank against Barcelona as they missed the prodding runs of Karim Benzema. The French ace will be lining up against Club America and should pick up where he left off from in the Champions League final. He was also on the scoreboard in their last meeting in the Club World Cup and should revisit those happy memories at Oracle Park.
