Real Madrid has been training in China ahead of their last two friendlies on their global tour before returning to Spain for the Super Cup.

Real play Chinese Super League leaders Guangzhou on Wednesday as part of a pre-season, global tour during which the club has not lost a game. They then play Tianjin Teda on Saturday before returning to Spain for the two-leg Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona on August 14 and 17.

Real were runners-up to Barcelona in La Liga, but have added Jose Maria Callejon to their line-up, along with French striker Karim Benzema, Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain and Turkey international Nuri Sahin. Questioned about the Super Cup against Barcelona, Ronaldo replied they are not going to get ahead of themselves.

Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo said, "We are just concentrating on preparation and when the game against Barca comes up, we will surely be fully prepared. We have a lot to work on. We are just concentrating on training."
