Major League Soccer in the USA has announced that the reigning UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid will face the best of MLS in the 2017 MLS All-Star Game on 2nd August, at Soldier Field in Chicago.

This will mark the first time a team from Spain’s La Liga will appear in the MLS All-Star Game. The MLS All-Stars have previously faced clubs from the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, Mexico’s Liga MX and the Scottish Premier League, and have an 8-4-1 record against some of the world’s most decorated clubs.
“It is an honor to represent Major League Soccer and to work with our league’s great players in a match against one of the top clubs in the world,” Paunovic said in a statement. “I know how special it is to compete against Real Madrid and I think our players and fans will also enjoy the experience.”
Soldier Field has played host to some of the most exciting sporting and entertainment events in the world including CONCACAF Gold Cup matches, World Cup Qualifiers, 1994 FIFA World Cup matches, and last summer’s Copa America Centenario. Not only has Soldier Field hosted a wealth of international soccer events, the Chicago landmark also has a rich MLS legacy, as it was home to the Chicago Fire for the club’s first four seasons, from 1998-2001, then again from 2003-05.
After Real Madrid’s easy win in the first leg when they beat Athletico Madrid 3-0 and Juventus easy 2-0 away win against Monaco, it looks like the 2016-17 Champions league winner will be one of the two giants from Spain or Italy with most bookmakers making Ronaldo’s Real Madrid slight favourites to lift the trophy.
Many people will be backing the Portuguese wizard to score another hat-trick in the final after he notched up three goals last week against Real’s neighbours Atheltico on Wednesday but one has to think of Barcelona’s amazing comeback earlier this year that it is possible to come back from 3-0 down after the first leg. But who would be on Real throwing away such a big lead?
