International Edition By: Ambrose Udeme | 17/04/2018

Real Madrid will renew rivalry with Juventus when next summer's International Champions Cup kicks off in the United States of America.

For the sixth consecutive year, Los Blancos are to take part in the pre-season tournament and begin proceedings with a match versus Jose Mourinhio's United in Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, where they faced Barcelona last season.

Over three weeks, 18 teams will play in eight countries across three continents to compete for the 2018 International Champions Cup.  While Real Madrid and Barcelona will play in the United States, Atletico Madrid are off to Singapore and Sevilla stay closer to home with a fixture list across Europe.

Up next for Zinedine Zidane's men is a tie against their UEFA Champions League quarter-final opponent Juventus in Landover, Maryland, on August 4.

The meeting with Juve will represent their first encounter since the controversial end to their Champions League quarter-final.

Los Blancos will then head to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey for a clash with UCL surprise package and semi-finalists Roma, scheduled for August 7.

The last time Real faced Roma was also in European competition, back in 2016.
