GdS: Milan will not face Barcelona in a pre-season friendly – the schedule

By Isak Möller -

Contrary to previous reports, AC Milan won’t take on Barcelona in a pre-season friendly this summer. The Rossoneri schedule has already been decided and they most likely won’t be adding any games. 

Due to the World Cup in Qatar, which will be played in the winter, the Serie A season will start earlier than usual (August 13). Therefore, AC Milan will have three friendlies in July and the pre-season will begin next week.

Recently, it was reported that the Rossoneri could replace Roma to face Barcelona in the 2022 Gamper Trophy, as the Giallorossi dropped out of the clash. However, as per Gazzetta Dello Sport’s Luca Bianchin, this won’t happen.

Milan will face Köln on July 16th, Hungarian side Zalaegerszegi on July 23rd and finally Marseille on July 31st. As said, the first training session will take place next week and more specifically on Monday. A lot of fans are expected at Milanello for that.

        1. @abanjo2003 why? And also – isn’t Marseille a good team? They finished on second place in France.

          And also – Pre Season friendlies are to get money. Next year (when they gonna be time for that) Milan will go on tournee to USA or China and there will play with Barca, Real M., Manchester U o City, PSG, Bayern, … why? Cause there is cashto get fron those matches.
          But back in Europe they will go for some matches with ‘not so good’ teams to get some more cash from it.

  1. Marseille is average at best. If you think they are equivalent to Barca or Madrid or Liverpool you are fvcked in the brain.

    1. @abanjo2003 you’ve wrote “Good teams” not “very good” or “best in Europe” !!
      So — Marseille is a good (not great but good) team !!

        1. Is Marseille is avg then what you gonna say about Sassuollo ? What you gonna say about Torino?
          What you gonna say about Monza? What you gonna say about some clubs from Poland, Sweden or Norway?

          And if … if Barca is ‘good’ then what clubs are ‘very good’ ? Real and Liverpool? And thats all?

          And once again — why it’s better for this Milan to play on pre season with (f.e.) Barcelona than Maseille ?? WHY ??
