WATCH LIVE: Real Madrid vs Arsenal 2019 live stream
Real Madrid face Arsenal for their second preseason game after losing 3-1 to Bayern Munich last Saturday. Los Blancos need to gain some momentum before the season starts and Arsenal will be a quality opponent given that they’ve already played three preseason games this summer.
Most fans will surely pay attention to Gareth Bale, who missed Saturday’s match against Bayern. Zidane revealed that the Welshman is close to leaving the club yet nothing is finalized yet, which means that he could get some minutes in today’s match.
Other than that, it will be interesting to see if Zidane changes his two units to balance both squads. It would help some of the young players like Kubo, Jovic or Rodrygo, who could benefit from some improved creativity in the midfield.
All in all, this should be an entertaining games with plenty of chances for both sides, especially if we consider that this is only a preseason game.
Can Arsenal make it four pre-season wins on the spin? The Gunners face a tall order to do so, with Real Madrid up next in the International Champions Cup.

The Gunners have beaten Colorado Rapids (3-0), Bayern Munich (2-1) and Fiorentina (3-0) on their US pre-season tour so far, but Spanish giants Real Madrid should offer a sterner examination of Emery's squad.
Zinedine Zidane's side suffered an early summer setback with a 3-1 defeat against Bayern, but it is very early doors for Los Blancos as Zizou beds in a number of new signings such as Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic.
