Piqué and other Barca players in Las Vegas casino ahead of El Clásico
A Tiktok user published a video in which Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba, and other Barcelona players are spotted in a casino in Las Vegas ahead of El Clásico.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are gearing up to face each other in a preseason El Clásico matchup in Las Vegas. The game will be today (Saturday) at 8p.m. local time at Allegiant Stadium.
This will be the second El Clásico held in the United States, but this time, it’s in the gambling capital of America. Las Vegas is well-known for its casinos and its parties. It seems some of the Barcelona squad couldn’t resist the sin city temptations. Gerard Piqué, Jordi Alba, and others from the Barcelona squad were spotted at a casino the night before the El Clásico matchup, shown in Tiktok user @victorlv1981′s video. They say “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, but not in this day and age.
Real Madrid is going into the game as the winners of the Champions League title, their 14th total, plus the champions of LaLiga and Supercopa de España. Barcelona, under new head coach Xavi Hernandez, turned their season around and finished second in LaLiga, but were eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage.
Here’s how and where you can watch the Las Vegas El Clásico.
