Pre-season fixtures

The pre-season warm-ups are finally coming to an end, and five clubs have already made their appearances in official competitions. Barcelona hosted their own summer tournament this week, the Gamper trophy, but for once there was disappointment as a depleted side lost 0-1 to Manchester City. The last friendlies take place in the next two or three days, with Real Madrid hosting their Bernabeu Trophy against Rosenborg on Monday. Next Saturday though La Liga begins again, with Madrid kicking off against Deportivo in the opening match. (21.08.09)
