The 2018/19 season is nearly upon us and our team wants to get ready for it in the best possible manner. Our preseason officially began on 11 July, when our players return to Madrid for their fitness check-ups. After weeks of training sessions, the lads will begin playing friendly matches to be able to start the season in great shape.
At the moment, we're going to play four friendly matches. We'll kick off our friendlies with the International Champions Cup in Singapore against Arsenal on 26 July and just four days later against PSG. Both matches will kick-off at 1:35 p.m. CET. Following the two matches, our team will return to Madrid before traveling to Italy on 3 August.
We'll continue training in Bruneck, Italy for a week. Just after arriving to Italy, we'll take a quick trip to Germany to face VFB Stuttgart on 5 August at 5 p.m. CET. Just three days later, we'll face Cagliario at 8 p.m. CET. Our final friendly will be on 11 August in the Wanda Metropolitano against Inter Milan at 9:05 p.m CET. It'll be our third and final match of the 2018 ICC.
Lastly, we'll face Real Madrid on 15 August at the Lillekula Stadium in Estonia for the 2018 UEFA Super Cup. The match will be our final one before the LaLiga season starts.
