Galaxy to host Real Madrid at Home Depot Center in early August

Real Madrid is coming back to the United States, and once again they will pay a visit to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The recently-crowned La Liga champions will battle Los Angeles at the Home Depot Center on Aug. 2 as part of the 2012 World Football Challenge, the Galaxy announced Monday. The match will mark the teams' third meeting in as many years, with Real Madrid having claimed a 3-2 win at the Rose Bowl in 2010 and a 4-1 victory last summer at the LA Coliseum.

The game, which should feature the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Iker Casillas, is sandwiched in between a pair of difficult fixtures for Los Angeles. The Galaxy are scheduled to play Western Conference foes FC Dallas on July 28 and the Seattle Sounders on Aug. 5.

What do you think of Real Madrid facing the Galaxy again? Planning on attending? Wondering how Los Angeles plans to approach this game?
