Inter Miami vs Barcelona Live Football Soccer July 20, 2022

Barcelona will be keen to put their off-the-field distractions behind them and register their first win of the pre-season when they face Major League outfit Inter Miami. The Catalan side should be the clear favourites in this clash, however, they are heading into this match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Olot in their opener last week. Besides, Barcelona have been constantly making the headlines due to their financial difficulties. Despite all those concerns, the Spanish side have been busy in the market, bringing in top talents from across Europe.

However, the one that made the most of the headline is the saga surrounding their star midfielder Frenkie de Jong. Manchester United have been constantly in touch with the La Liga outfit to sign the Dutchman and reunite him with their new manager Erik ten Hag. However, the transfer does not seem to be reaching a conclusion, as it continues to drag on. Although Barcelona could benefit from de Jong’s transfer fee, it is not completely clear whether the player wants to stay or leave. One way or another, both sets of fans would want the entire saga to end soon. It will also be interesting to see whether he will play some part in the upcoming match.

Last season, Barcelona overcame a poor start to finish second with 73 points from 38 games in the La Liga table. They also saw a managerial change, which saw their former star midfielder Xavi being appointed as the new manager at the Camp Nou. Their performances considerably improved after his appointment, hence fans will hope that this season they can challenge for the title. Meanwhile, Inter Miami will head into this clash on the back of a spirited come-from-behind victory over Charlotte. They are currently sitting ninth in the Eastern Conference of the MLS table, with 25 points from 20 games.

Barcelona have been extremely busy in the transfer window till now, bringing in a lot of quality players. The standout one is the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski joining them from Bayern Munich. Besides, they have also signed Raphinha, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen. Kessie, who played in the last match, could feature again. However, it is not clear how many of the other new arrivals might feature for them in this clash. Meanwhile, Ian Fray and Robbie Robinson will not be available for Inter Miami, with major question marks hanging over the participation of Ariel Lassiter and Brek Shea.

Inter Miami possible line-up: Callender, Yedlin, Gibbs, Lowe, Mcvey, Gregore, Mota, Taylor, Pozuelo, Vassilev, Higuain

Barcelona possible line-up: Ter Stegen, Dest, Araujo, E Garcia, Alba, Kessie, Busquets, Pedri, Raphinha, Dembele, Aubameyang
