Melbourne Victory will host UEFA Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid in a pre-season match at Geelong's Simmonds Stadium in July.

The Spanish club, who are already scheduled to play Tottenham Hotspur at the MCG next month, will take on the three-time A-League champions on July 31 to cap off their Australian tour.

Atletico will also mark the second international club Victory will play during the period, with a clash against Serie A champions Juventus at the MCG also scheduled as part of the International Champions Cup.
