Will Real Madrid end its American tour without a win? The Spanish powerhouse is 0-2-1 through three games of its preseason tour before meeting the MLS All-Star squad on Wednesday night in Chicago. At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Real Madrid is a -200 favorite against Tim Howard, Michael Bradley, Kaka, and the rest of Major League Soccer’s best.

Through the first three legs of its American tour, Real Madrid tied Manchester United 1-1, lost to Manchester City 4-1 and lost to El Clasico rival Barcelona 3-2. The MLS has enjoyed recent success in this All-Star Game format against Europe’s best clubs. Major League Soccer has won three of the last five All-Star Games with victories over Tottenham, Bayern Munich and Chelsea, and losses to Roma and Arsenal. The MLS All-Stars are 7-4-1 against European clubs, with Real Madrid being the first Spanish opponent. International superstars Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, and Luka Modric are all expected to see playing time for Madrid on Wednesday night. The total has been set at 3.5 goals. Four of the last five MLS All-Star Games have been decided by scores of 2-1.
