The next step on Real Madrid's quest to prepare themselves for the 2022/23 season will see them butt heads with Mexican side Club America.

Los Blancos fell to Barcelona last time out and, despite Thibaut Courtois' insistence that pre-season results don't count, they will be determined to ensure they don't fall to the same fate this time around.

Their opponents are already three games deep into their new season, but Club America have mixed competitive action with high-profile friendlies against Chelsea and Manchester City - both of which ended in 2-1 defeats.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Real Madrid team news vs Club America

Karim Benzema is expected to make his first outing of pre-season but the jury remains out on right-back Dani Carvajal, who suffered a minor ankle injury in training which kept him out of the Barcelona game.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti will likely look to rotate his squad to give minutes to all his players, and all eyes will be on how he uses Antonio Rudiger. A centre-back by trade, the German spent time as a left-back against Barcelona and it will be interesting whether that is a long-term tactic or more of a one-off.

Real Madrid pre-season squad: Thibaut Courtois, Andriy Lunin, Luis Lopez, Lucas Canizares, Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Jesus Vallejo, Nacho, Antonio Rudiger, Ferland Mendy, Alvaro Odriozola, Vinicius Tobias, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Federico Valverde, Lucas Vazquez, Aurelien Tchouameni, Dani Ceballos, Eduardo Camavinga, Eden Hazard, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior, Rodrgyo, Mariano Diaz, Juanmi Latasa.

Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Club America

(4-3-3): Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Rodrygo, Hazard, Vinicius

Club America team news vs Real Madrid

America don't have any fitness issues to worry about but instead will have to find the right mix between looking competitive and protecting players, with a trip to Leon in league action coming up on Monday.

Those unfamiliar with America's squad may recognise Jorge Mere, Guillermo Ochoa, Miguel Layun, Jonathan dos Santos and video game speedster Jurgen Damm.

Club America predicted lineup vs Real Madrid

(4-2-3-1): Ochoa; J Sanchez, Lara, Araujo, Fuentes; R Sanchez, Dos Santos; Zendejas, Valdes, Fidalgo; Martin

Real Madrid vs Club America score prediction

The return of Benzema could be massive here. While the Frenchman almost certainly won't play the full 90, he doesn't need that long to make a decisive contribution - or two.

America will want to give a good account of themselves but, at the end of the day, they have bigger fish to fry in the form of league action, whereas this is all Real have on their minds right now, and after their defeat to Barcelona, they'll be hungry for their first taste of victory.

It should be a pretty easy one for Real.

Prediction: Real Madrid 3-0 Club America
