There have been whispers of a Manchester Derby held in the United States this summer, but we’ll be getting at least one pairing of major international rivals on our shores in 2017.

Barcelona and Real Madrid will stage a match-up of El Clasico rivals in Miami on July 29.

The game will be part of the 2017 International Champions Cup, and will be held at Hard Rock Stadium, the home of the National Football League’s Miami Dolphins.

The two rivals drew 1-1 in Barcelona late last year, and play in Madrid on April 23. Barca leads La Liga by one point, but Real has played one less game.
