Miami to host El Clasico fixture later this year

Barcelona receive more penalties than anyone else – and here is the proof

Arguably the world's greatest club soccer rivalry is headed to American soil for one night only.

Spanish arch-rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona will meet in a pre-season friendly in Miami on July 29 in the first "Clasico" to take place outside Spain for 35 years.

The formal announcement was made during a press conference on Friday that featured legends from both sides such as Hristo Stocihkov and Roberto Carlos.

The La Liga giants have only faced themselves once outside Spain in history - a match in 1982 in Venezuela, which Madrid won 1-0 thanks to a Vicente del Bosque goal.

Fans from all over the United States, Latin America, and Europe are expected to travel to Miami for the big event, the marquee match of the International Champions Cup.
