Arsenal set to play Barcelona in Soccer Champions Tour 

Arsenal are set to play against Barcelona in the Soccer Champions Tour of the United States. 

Their Premier League rivals Manchester United will also be competing in the exhibition series alongside Real Madrid, Juventus and AC Milan. 

The Gunners will start their 2022-23 pre-season tour with a friendly against MLS All-Stars on July 14 before taking on the Red Devils at MetLife Stadium in New York. 

Mikel Arteta’s men will also be involved in the Soccer Champions Tour as they square off with Barca at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. 

Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s men will come up against Real at NRG Stadium in Houston on July 26. 

The series will also see the two Spanish giants play in their first-ever El Clasico at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. 

Mikel Arteta’s men will currently be fully focused on the Premier League where they are fighting with Manchester City for the league crown. 

Losing 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium was a big blow for the Gunners but their subsequent performances suggest they haven’t given up on the title yet.  

The North Londoners beat Chelsea 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium before running out 2-0 winners at Newcastle United last weekend. 

Their remaining fixtures look comparatively easy with Brighton & Hove Albion, Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers as their next opponents in the English top flight. 

Arsenal will likely pick up full points from their final three encounters but still they need City to slip up for sealing the Premier League title.
