I hadn't paid attention. I might try to make that happen.

Will they be bringing their second stringers or just third string teams?

I imagine some top talent will be there. Both teams are talking major overhauls in the offseason (hundreds of millions of euros) and would be well served to give them time to gel. Plus it's not a WC year and neither is in the CL final.

I saw Barcelona v Roma last year and Barcelona brought almost nobody. It was still pretty entertaining but considering the price I wouldn't go again.

Last year was a World Cup summer though.

When I saw Barca v. Club America a few years ago in a non-World Cup summer, they played a decent squad. David Villa, Busquets, Victor Valdes, and a few of the other names.

But honestly, without Messi, it was always going to feel like a roster letdown no matter who else they brought over.


Still enjoyed it and some of their youngsters were a lot of fun to watch. Its been fun to see who has turned into something and who hasn't.

That's kinda what I thought. The prices for these events seem way out of line when you consider they're meaningless friendlies with little/no stars.

I'll blow my dumb soccer money for either the 2026 WC and/or a trip to see my favorite club team play a real game in Europe... but not stuff like this.

To each their own though. I'm becoming a miser the older I get. Hope some of y'all have fun.

i mean....it was $80 for the ticket with fees...I do agree that some of the tickets closer to the field are outrageous, but I figured its a good chance to see two world class teams, in my home town...

Yeah rule of thumb is to not go to the summer friendlies in years where there are major tournaments because the international players will not travel.

You didnt' have to pre buy the tickets will be cheaper closer to the event. Man vs Man city wasn't even close to selling out.

This is why I'm willing to go to these matches.

The coolest thing to happen yesterday happened after the match. They had all the players that didn't play in the match as well as the subs that came on in the 2nd half(Ozil, Laca, Auba, Kolasinac, Willock, Mustafi etc) start to do the typical post-game cool down as the stadium emptied. They were doing the rondo game that's always in the videos. About 150 fans stayed to watch when all the coaches came out and held a full 75 minute practice. Really cool to see almost all the 1st team out there practicing from the 1st row. Some of the stuff out there was dang near telepathic.

After they finished up, Nacho, Mhki and Nelson came over and took photos and signed stuff. I talked to Reiss for a split second and he said he fully expects to play here this season. No more loan moves
