ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- Real Madrid and Inter Milan will play a soccer match at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis Saturday.

Real Madrid has arguably the best soccer player in the world, Christiano Ronaldo.

His team practiced at the SLU soccer field Thursday. The school's soccer teams got to watch the practice.

"This is awesome for use because we watch them on tv, but we never thought we would be able to see them in person," SLU Soccer Team Captain Alex Sweetin said.

Bars are also excited about the match.

"We expect Saturday to be wicked awesome for us," International Tap House Manager Katie Herrera said. "It's always great for us when something like this is in town."

In May two other international soccer teams played at Busch Stadium. Fans told Fox 2 they hope the two games are steps toward getting a professional soccer team in St. Louis.

"The MLS has to notice this," Sweetin said. "St. Louis has supported this."
