Barcelona football is back! Sure, there's no Lionel Messi and Neymar, but it's been 45 days since the last match for the Catalans, and they're touring the United States to kick off the pre-season.
Three dates with big-name clubs on giant stadiums make for a very exciting International Champions Cup, the "tournament" that the Blaugrana are participating in to give some competition to the friendly games. On Tuesday night, they're playing at the historical Rose Bowl, which is sold out for the last two weeks, against the Major League Soccer's most popular team, LA Galaxy.
Even though the Treble-winning squad doesn't feature its biggest stars, it still has some awesome names and talents. Luis Suárez and Andrés Iniesta captain the ship, and stars like Gerard Piqué and Dani Alves also add to the party and draw people in. Speaking of Luis Suárez, he'll face his friend and former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard, who now plays for the Galaxy. It should be lots of fun, and a good opportunity for coach Luis Enrique to test his whole roster and give some kids from the youth system valuable minutes.
