LA Galaxy take on Real Madrid in pick of football friendlies from Home Depot Centre
- Updated: August 2, 2012
Real Madrid continue their preparations for the new season this week as Victor Chandler report free bets and make them heavy odds on favourites as Ronaldo and co travel to the USA to take on LA Galaxy at the Home Depot Center.
Jose Mourinho’s men are the reigning La Liga Champions of course and they will be looking to use this game to prepare for the defence of this title. Looking to challenge for major honours all season, this is where the hard work begins.
Hosting a team of Real Madrid’s stature is an extremely exciting prospect for LA Galaxy too. The profile of the MLS has risen in the last few years of course – with thanks to David Beckham who is set to start this game – and being able to take on these European giants is testament to that.
Victor Chandler will offer free bets worth £25/€25 to spend on any club friendly or Olympics market – Any event of your choice! They’ll also refund bets if the game finishes 0-0! Exclusive to SqueakyBumTime.com
It is a chance for Galaxy to compare themselves to some of the best in the world too. Beckham will want to prove he still has what it takes, while the team as a whole will do everything they can to compete with Madrid.
The fans will be incredibly excited about seeing a lot of Madrid’s star players in action too. Not least Cristiano Ronaldo who will play some part for the Spanish side.
In fact, the battle between Beckham and Ronaldo – two former Manchester United No.7s – is a fascinating one. Make no mistake about it, this is going to be a fascinating match from start to finish with plenty of sub-plots to keep an eye on.
In terms of the match itself, Madrid are of course the favourites. In pre-season so far, they have had a mixed bag though. After hammering Real Oviedo 5-1 in their first friendly match, Mourinho’s men lost 5-2 at the hands of Benfica last time out.
Madrid will therefore look for a more complete performance this time around as they step up their preparation against Juventus, AC Milan and Celtic after this.
Getting underway in the early hours of Friday morning – or 7.30pm on Thursday evening in America – this should be an entertaining and competitive contest.
