|Real Madrid Pre-season 2013-2014|
Like last summer, the United States will be the core of the pre-season 2013-2014 and Real Madrid will play four friendlies in American soil. However, as happened in 2012, the team will not visit Asia, a destination that had been customary in the white pre-seasons and where the people are unconditional fans. In 2013 they will not enjoy the Real Madrid players.
The White pre-season 2013-2014 will start in Istanbul. The players of the first team will travel from Madrid to the Turkish city to play their first two games of the 2013-14 year, on 22 and 24 July. The first opponent will be the Galatasaray, recent rival in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, and the other, yet to be determined, an English or German team.
Then, and before traveling to America, the team will travel to Gothenburg to face Paris Saint-Germain. The third friendly game is scheduled to take place in the Swedish city on 27 July at the Ullevi stadium, where we will surely be able to see the first steps of the new signings of the summer market. One of the last times they faced was in season 1992/1993 in the quarter-finals of the old UEFA Cup. The French won the game (4-1).
And on July 28 begins the American stage. Real Madrid will be back at UCLA, the University of California, in Los Angeles, as in past years. The team will work on the college campus, facilities well known to get ready ahead of the start line of the season.
The American fans will have the opportunity to see their idols again. This time Real Madrid will play four friendlies. The first, on August 1, in Los Angeles. Second, on August 4, in Phoenix. Then, white team will move to the east coast, to close his trip to the United States with two more friendlies; August 7 in Washington and day 11 in Miami.
After the workload in the United States, Real Madrid players will return home on August 12, to continue training until the start of the competition, late in the month. The white club has decided to back to Spanish lands on that date in order to prepare the Spanish Super Cup, a competition that Real Madrid will have to play, if the team wins the Spanish Cup against Atletico Madrid, next week.
Without the next year coach, Real Madrid shows that does not want to waste time when preparing the next pre-season 2013-201 for making the coach's adaptation as easy as possible, going to a destination known by players that will help the squad to reach a good pace for the beginning of the season, Madrid's weakness this year, when team lost the Spanish League. Everything is ready. Still not finished the current season and the Real Madrid 2013-14 has already begun to move.
