On Saturday night, Barcelona beat Real Madrid in Soccer’s International Champions Cup match. The game was played in Miami and it was a really big deal.  If you don’t know why, here’s why:

First of all, Barcelona and Madrid are rivals. They’re both in Spain, they’re both great teams, and they each have some of the best soccer players in the world.  Barcelona has Lionel Messi, who lots of people consider the best player in the world. He can get around defenders and score long shots better than anyone. Barcelona also has Luis Suarez and Neymar Jr. who are both amazing.

Madrid has Cristiano Ronaldo, who everyone knows. He had to miss the game but Gareth Bale was there and he is awesome. He makes incredible free kicks and long distance strikes.

The International Champions Cup is a set of games between the best soccer teams in Europe. It started in 2013 and is held every year and includes 16 teams.  It is considered an exhibition tournament.  This year, there are games in China, Singapore and the United States.

The games this year have been amazing. All the best players in the world are playing against each other.  Hopefully I can see these 2 rivals play each other one day.  But when I do, I hope to see it in Spain.
