Mundo Deportivo revealed on Wednesday that Barça are already working on a new tour of the United States that will take them to New York, Los Angeles and, perhaps, another city in the United States to avoid the harsh temperatures of places like Miami and, above all, Dallas and Las Vegas, which he has visited other summer.

The last time we had a USA Clásico

Barça are currently working on the same opponents as last summer. Juventus and Madrid, the ‘dissidents’ of UEFA over the Super League issue, could play against Barcelona along with a selection of American teams. So, another Clásico is cooking. Barça and Madrid have already played two games lately in the United States. In 2017, the Catalans won 3-2 in what was Neymar’s last game with the side. Last summer, Barça also won with a solitary goal from Raphinha.

This season, the balance in the official Clásicos is even in terms of goals. Madrid won 3-1 at the Bernabéu in the League and Barça by the same result in the Super Cup. There are still three pending, two in the Cup and one in the League.
