F.C. Barcelona vs Club León

The Back to Back Liga MX champions, Club León will take on FC Barcelona in the Joan Gamper Cup match on Monday August 18th. This is Barcelona’s traditional curtain-raiser to the start of the season.

Club León will have their hands full with Barcelona’s star studded lineup which includes Lionel Messi, Neymar and the cannibal, Luis Suarez. After the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sports, Suarez will be allowed to train with the squad and play in any friendlies. As for Neymar, he had a devastating injury in the World Cup and seems to have recover and is participating in Barcelona’s full workouts but may not play the full 90 minutes. On the other side, The great Rafa Marquez will play his last official game with Club León and will be honored by FC Barcelona for all the great years playing for Barcelona.

It may seem that Club León has no chance against FC Barcelona but never count out La Fiera. One thing to consider is that Barcelona is still in pre-season mode which they had mixed results in their four previous friendlies. Club Leon is will into their season with a slow start but in their last game they have showed signs of why are the current back to back Liga MX Champions. This should be an interesting match, we will see if La Fiera can get the win.

FC Barcelona (4-3-3): Bravo; Montoya, Piqué, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Iniesta, Rakitić; Pedro, Messi, Suarez
Club León (4-1-3-1-1): Yarbrough; Delgado, Magallon, Gonzalez, Edwin; Elias, Vazquez, Cardenas; Rivera; Boselli
