Barcelona will take on Tottenham in their attempt to win the Joan Gamper Trophy on Tuesday at the Estadi Olímpic Lluis Companys.
Barcelona won La Liga, beating competition from Real Madrid and Tottenham finished eighth in the Premier League last season. Both teams have made significant signings in the summer transfer window, with Barcelona bringing in Ilkay Gundogan and Tottenham signing James Maddison.
Tottenham will be looking to make a statement with a win against Barcelona. They have a good mix of youth and experience in their team, and they will be hoping that Harry Kane, who has been tipped to depart the club soon, continues to add to his pre-season tally after scoring four times in a friendly match against Shakhtar Donetsk on Sunday.
This match will surely be close, and it could go either way. It will be an excellent opportunity for both teams to test themselves against each other ahead of the start of the new season. Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channels, streaming details and more.
