Int’l Champions Cup 2018: FC Barcelona vs. A.S. Roma
The International Champions Cup is back for its sixth edition, with 18 teams facing off this summer at 22 different venues around the globe. Of the 22 games, 14 will be hosted at various stadiums in the US, including an exciting matchup between FC Barcelona and A.S. Roma in July.
When & Where is the FC Barcelona vs. A.S. Roma Match?
On Tuesday, July 31, AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys) will play host to one of the International Champions Cup matches between Barcelona and Roma. At 8:30pm local time, these two powerhouse soccer clubs will square off in an exhibition that likely won’t feel like an exhibition–considering Barcelona’s track record of “playing to win” and Roma’s assured desire to beat them.
Tickets to Barcelona vs Roma
It’s difficult to predict exactly who from each squad we’ll see, considering this match takes place just two weeks after the World Cup 2018 final, but the hope is at least some of Barcelona’s stars will make appearances. On the Barca side, we likely won’t see Messi, unless Argentina is knocked out early in the World Cup, but we should see players like Philippe Coutinho, Gerard Pique, and Sergio Busquets.
For A.S. Roma, expect to see the quick feet of forwards Edin Dzeko and Stephen El Shaaraway, as neither player’s international team (Bosnia and Italy, respectively) will be participating in this iteration of the World Cup.
Considering how deep the FC Barcelona roster is compared to Roma, the team has a solid shot at picking up the victory. However, don’t count out a fully staffed Roma squad that has played its way into the top three in Series A this season.
