Real Madrid vs Oviedo: Pre-season 2012-2013

Real Madrid will play its first pre-season game at the Carlos Tartiere Stadium on July 24 against Oviedo. The date was free to play a friendly, that at first Real Madrid was going to play in Tangier. Having canceled the match in Morocco, the white club decided the best was to play in Spain and in a place where fans usually do not enjoy Real Madrid. Yesterday all negotiations were fast and Oviedo was chosen to play the first game of the preseason. Real has not played there since 2002 and Carlos Tartiere Stadium, with 30,500 seats will be full. It is also a comfortable trip. The team will move the same day of the game and will return to the Spanish capital after the end.

In this friendly match, Mourinho will have to combine eleven players of the first team (Adan Lass, Varane, Carvalho, Granero, Gago, Sahin, Callejon, Kaka, Di Maria and Higuain) with some R.M.Castilla players. All of them will train since Monday at Valdebebas Sports City. The players who have played the Euro 2012 will join later.

Oviedo, team that was demoted administratively to Spanish Third Division by the refusal of several players to withdraw complaints for non-payment in 2003, now plays in the Second Division B (third level). This season was sixth with 60 points. Last time Real Madrid played a friendly in Spain was on May 18, 2011. After the earthquake in Lorca, the white team played a friendly in Murcia to benefit victims (2-2). In summer period, the last friendly was on August 22, 2010. Real Madrid won 1-3 against Hercules.
