Real Madrid and Manchester United UCLA Practice Coverage | Photos

Real Madrid training at UCLAThis week, both Real Madrid and Manchester United are in Los Angeles, as the famed European soccer powers get set to kickoff their respective 2017 US tours. In addition to competing against one-another, July 23, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, Real Madrid will play games in LA, Miami and Chicago, with Manchester United taking the field in LA, Salt Lake City, Houston and Washington, D.C.

Once each club returns back to Europe, the La Liga and EPL titans will battle one more time, August 8, in Skopje, Macedonia.

Ironically, both Real Madrid and Man Utd are conducting their training efforts on the campus of UCLA, with the boys from Spain stationed on the soccer fields immediately north of the John Wooden Center, while the lads from Britain are doing their thing at nearby Drake Stadium.
