Juventus take on Real Madrid (7:30 pm ET – on ESPN+) at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. The Soccer Champions Tour 2023 will come to an end with this clash of Serie A and LaLiga titans in what is expected to be a packed venue.
The game will be the fourth preseason friendly for ‘Los Blancos’, who will look to recover from their heavy loss in Las Vegas’ El Clasico against Barcelona (3-0). The scoreline doesn’t reflect how the Madridistas really played, as they had four shots hit the woodwork and a missed penalty by Vinicius.
