The best of the MLS v Real Madrid 

The best of the MLS will form an All-Star side with hopes of being able to take on Real Madrid's big names. The game will be held at the 61,500 capacity Soldier Field where the Chicago Bears have their home. Chicago Fire coach Veljko Paunovic will take charge of the MLS All-Stars. Among the big names for the home side are the likes of Villa, Pirlo, Schweinsteiger and Giovinco.

Real Madrid's second visit to Chicago

This will be Real Madrid's second appearance in the windy city. 12 years ago they played a friendly against Mexican side Chivas, which finished 3-1 in favour of Real Madrid, with Guti, Soldado and Mejía playing.
