A nine-time European champion, and 31-time champion of Spain’s La Liga, Real Madrid finished second in Spain’s La Liga this season just three points behind league champion, Barcelona, despite losing just four times all season long. In late May, the club named former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager Jose Mourinho as the club’s new head coach. Ten of Real’s current squad participated in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, including six players who helped their national team reach the semifinals, while another three have played in a previous World Cup.
The Galaxy, who first played Real Madrid on July 18, 2005 at The Home Depot Center, with Madrid claiming a 2-0 victory, will return to the Rose Bowl for the second time in as many years. The club’s home stadium from 1996-2002, the Galaxy lost 2-1 to Barcelona in front of 93,137 in their return to the stadium last August.
