Will Lewandowski make his Barcelona debut against Real Madrid? As Joan Laporta’s message via the Madrid hotel speaks volume.
In preparation for their second preseason game in the United States, Barcelona is already in Las Vegas. Their match against Real Madrid on Saturday will mark Robert Lewandowski’s debut for the club.
The Blaugrana team is already in Las Vegas, where they will play another preseason match, but this one is one of the most anticipated by the team and the fans, following the 1-1 draw against Olot in their first preparation match and the 6-0 thrashing of Inter Miami in their presentation in the United States.
Allegiant Stadium is completely full.
Real Madrid will have its first game after winning the Champions League, and will be in charge of receiving Lewandowski, with tickets sold out for the game at the full Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
The team’s supporters are eagerly anticipating Robert Lewandowski’s introduction after the signing of the Polish player, who cost about $50 million and included a $500 million termination clause, became official.
The La Liga derby, which will be played for the second time in America, will likely feature the striker as he has already trained with his teammates.
Along with Lewandowski, the additions of Raphinha, Andreas Christensen, and Franck Kessié are anticipated to play more time after starting the previous three matches against MLS teams.
Coach Xavi Hernández, who was able to resolve visa issues and is already with the team in the United States, will be present for Saturday’s classic in Las Vegas.
In Las Vegas, Real Madrid is prepared to go.
All of Real Madrid’s players are already in Las Vegas, but because they were the last to arrive, they won’t play against Barcelona.
In their most recent LaLiga match, Barcelona defeated Real Madrid 4-0. In their most recent friendly match, Barca defeated Real Madrid 3-2 in the International Champions Cup in North America five years ago.
Joan Laporta’s message to Real Madrid on the hotel in Las Vegas:
“We are Barça, but don’t worry merengues, what happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas”.
