The reigning European champions are set to face a collection of the biggest stars in MLS in Wednesday night’s All-Star Game.

Soldier Field plays host to the annual midsummer match which pits Real Madrid against the MLS All-Stars. Real Madrid’s starting XI features some of the world’s top stars, such as Tony Kroos, Sergio Ramos, Isco and Keylor Navas, and, even without Cristiano Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane’s side should give the MLS team all they can handle.

On the other side, Veljko Paunovic’s All-Star XI features big-name European stars like Sebastian Giovinco, David Villa and Bastian Schweinsteiger as well as former Real Madrid star Kaka. Joining them are several U.S. Men’s National Team regulars like Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, Tim Howard and Graham Zusi.

The SBI staff will be offering updates and analysis in the comments section below, so feel free to follow along, and as always, please feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. What does Garza need to do to get a call up? Could it be an ego thing with Arena wanting to prove JK missed out on calling up Villafana. I like JV but as a backup and rotational lb but not a number 1

    • Have to remember Garza is just a few months into a major comeback. Was super limited by injury for several years and he definitely needed to prove himself again. Been very good so far this season so would assume he’d be back in the picture soon.

  2. While we wait for the All-Star Game festivities, Miami FC and FC Cincinnati are tied at 0-0 at halftime of their USOC quarterfinal.

  3. Good evening all and welcome to tonight’s live chat. Big night of soccer between U.S. Open Cup and MLS All-Star Game. Feel free to hop in the comment section and talk all things soccer. Any questions, comments, analysis? Throw them our way!

    • ICYMI tonight’s MLS starting XI, it can be seen here:

      Howard, Garza, Van Damme, Kappelhof, Zusi, Kaka, Bradley, Schweinsteiger, Villa, Altidore, Giovinco.

      Obviously a solid group. Defense still a weakness but that front three should be vicious. Plenty of fun options on the bench as well. Interested to see how Pauno handles it all.
