The New York Red Bulls is set to face Spanish side Barcelona FC in what is sure to be a very interesting friendly matchup on July 30, 2022. The match will be a continuation of Barcelona’s preseason tour, as they continue to prepare for the start of the 2022/23 season. 

So far in Barcelona’s preseason, they have played 4 matches, winning two and drawing two, including a win against Real Madrid. Their last match, which was against Italian giants, Juventus FC, ended in a 2-2 draw in Texas as Ousmane Dembele and Moise Kean both turned up for their clubs, scoring two goals each. On the other hand, the New York Red Bulls are more than halfway into their season, playing 22 matches and accumulating a total of 36 points. Their last match was a defeat in the US Open Cup against Orlando City, which saw them lose 5-1.

The match, which looks to be an exciting fixture with the obvious favorites being Barcelona, will be one to enjoy for people who bet online on sports betting sites like soccerbetghana with favorable betting odds and other online betting sites. The match will be played in the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey, the United States. 

New York Red Bulls who are in 3rd position in the Eastern conference and only 6 points behind the league leaders Philadelphia Union, will be looking to bounce back and perform in this match following the embarrassing defeat in their last match. They will be expected to utilize their squad to the fullest, despite having major matches coming up in the MLS.

Barcelona, on the other hand, will look to balance their tactics, test out new players, and hopefully become much better than they are now before the next season starts. So much is expected from them going into the next season, following the players they have signed this summer, despite being in financial debt. 

The match will mark the end of Barcelona’s preseason tour, as they will now be expected to compete at higher levels in major tournaments like the Champions League, in which they were eliminated in the group stages. They will also be expected to give the La Liga title holders, Real Madrid, a run for their money in the new season.

Elsewhere, the New York Red Bulls will continue their campaign and look to climb the table in the Eastern Conference as they harbor hopes of being able to continue to challenge for the MLS Cup at the end of the season.
