Chelsea will be up against Club America for their first crucial pre-season clash next month. Thomas Tuchel would hope to kickstart his pre-season tour with a positive result against the star-studded Mexican club.
Club America is captained by four-time World Cup veteran Mexican National Team goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. Club America has won more league titles than any other Mexican club (13), as well as the most international club titles in Concacaf (7).
The encounter in Las Vegas will be the third all-time meeting between Chelsea and Club America – with Club America looking for their first-ever win over the West London club.
