On Tuesday night in San Francisco, California, the Liga MX team will play a friendly match against the LaLiga giants.
Club América has the most Liga MX titles and will meet Real Madrid, the club with the most Champions League medals in Europe, on Tuesday night in San Francisco, California. This will be the fifth time the two teams have met in history, and the fourth time they have done so in a friendly match.
They first met in 1927, when Real Madrid’s pre-season trip led them to Mexico City at a period when the country did not have a professional football league. The LaLiga giants defeated América in two friendlies in Mexico City, winning the first by a score of 4-2 and the second by a score of 5-3.
The sides met again eighty-three years later on Real Madrid’s pre-season trip in the United States. LaLiga defeated Club América 3-2 in San Francisco in 2010, with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Sergio Canales. Meanwhile, for the Liga MX team, Enrique Esqueda and Vicente Sánchez scored.
They have only competed in one recognised event, the FIFA Club World Cup in 2016. América reached the semi-finals in Yokohama but fell 2-0 to Real Madrid, with Benzema and Cristiano scoring. Zinedine Zidane managed the squad that year, and they won the competition.
Benzema is ready to face América.
Carlo Ancelotti, the head coach of Real Madrid, said that Karim Benzema will play 45 minutes against Club América after missing the game against Barcelona. The French international will almost certainly start the second half, and Eden Hazard may return as a false nine.
