Real Madrid Pre-Season 2019: Where to Watch Los Blancos Play This Summer

​After a very disappointing season in both domestic and European competitions, Real Madrid will now have around six weeks of rest before they travel to America for the International Champions Cup where they will face a number of European heavy-weights. 

Los Blancos will then return to Europe in late July to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Audi Cup in Munich.

The Spanish side finished their 2018/19 ​La Liga campaign third, 19 points behind Barcelona and eight points behind bitter rivals ​Atletico Madird.

Their ​Champions League journey came to a halt after losing to Ajax 5-3 on aggregate in the round of 16.

Here’s a closer look at who, when and where Zinedine Zidane’s side will be playing this summer.

Bayern Munich

Real Madrid will kick off their pre-season with a match against ​Bundesliga champions and DFB-Pokal winners ​Bayern Munich on July 20. 

The Bavarians clinched their 29th league title after finishing their season two points above ​Borussia Dortmund.

Last time both teams faced each other was in the Champions League semi-final in 2018. Los Blancos came out as victors after beating the German side 2-1 away and securing a 2-2 draw at the Bernabeu.

After their encounter with Bayern Munich, Los Blancos will travel around 1,400 miles to Maryland to face Europa League finalists ​Arsenal. 

The Gunners failed to secure a Champions League spot for a third consecutive season, as Unai Emery’s side finished fifth in the Premier League, one point behind bitter rivals ​Tottenham, and succumbed to a 4-1 defeat to ​Chelsea in the Europa League final. 

Last time the north London side faced Los Blancos was in the 2006 group stages of the Champions League.

Both teams have faced each other three times last  season. Atletico came out as victors in the UEFA Super Cup Final in mid-August, after beating Real Madrid 4-2.

​Real Madrid will then travel back to Europe to take part in the Audi Cup in Munich.

Los Blancos will face Champions League finalists Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final of the competition on 30 July.
