The preseason is almost over. Real Madrid will play its last game before the Liga BBVA kicks off against the Scottish champions Celtic Glasgow (20:00 CET) at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. There have been no surprises in the team's list, and every player but Álex Fernández will be ready to face Georgios Samaras and his teammates. Mourinho's team should be able to beat Celtic at this point, since it's only a week away from facing Valencia at the Santiago Bernabéu.
It will be interesting so see which striker has the edge today and when la Liga starts. Higuaín has been a little bit better than Benzema so far, because the French player hasn't scored. Other than that, everything seems quite decided. No signing has arrived yet and Real Madrid's only addition will be Álvaro Morata.
It's good to see these summer games coming to a close. I just hope the players will be ready to start what could be one of the toughest seasons Real Madrid has faced in quite a long time.
