Two European giants coming off of disappointing seasons, Spain's Real Madrid and England's Arsenal FC, face off in a big-name preseason showdown.

The preseason International Champions Cup competition continues on Tuesday with another matchup of high-glamor European teams in the United States, as Real Madrid — winners of four of the most recent six UEFA Champions League championships — face English Premier League giants Arsenal FC, who have won England’s top-flight title 13 times, albeit not since 2004. Both teams are coming off of disappointing seasons in 2018-2019, with Real Madrid placing a lackluster third in Spain’s La Liga and getting themselves knocked out of the Champions League at the Round of 16. Arsenal placed fifth in the Premier League, failing to qualify for the Champions League at all. But Arsenal has seen an encouraging start to the preseason with ICC wins over Bayern Munich and Fiorentina, per Soccerway, and the Gunners look to add Los Blancos’ scalp in the match that will live stream from Maryland.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the preseason International Champions Cup clash on Tuesday, pitting 33-time Spanish La Liga champions Real Madrid against 13-time English top-flight winners Arsenal FC, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the 82,000-seat FedEx Field just outside of Washington D.C. in Landover, Maryland, on Tuesday, July 23. That start time will be 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, 6 p.m. Central.

In Spain, kickoff will take place at 1 a.m. Central European Summer Time on Wednesday, July 24. In the United Kingdom, that kickoff time is set for midnight British Summer Time. Fans in Japan can catch the live stream starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Japan Standard Time.

One Real Madrid superstar unlikely to take the pitch in Landover is Welsh international Gareth Bale, whose ongoing dispute with Real Manager Zinedine Zidane led Bale’s agent to label the Frenchman “a disgrace,” according to 90min.com.

Zidane held Bale out against Bayern and later stated publicly that he would like the Welsh star — who remains the world’s fifth-highest-paid player, according to The Sun newspaper — to be sold as soon as possible.

Though Bale has been linked to such European giants as England’s Manchester United and French champions Paris Saint-Germain, it now appears an even likelier destination may be Chinese club Beijing Guoan, according to The Score, a team that has reportedly offered Bale a wage of nearly $1.25 million per week.
