In a repeat of 2007 friendly match, Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona will once again visit South African shores to take on Mamelodi Sundowns.

The recently crowned Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns will have an opportunity to avenge the 2-1 loss they suffered against Barcelona in 2007.

In that year the Spanish giants brought their strongest squad which included the likes of Ronaldinho of Brazil and four time African player of the Year Samuel Eto’o.

And despite this being a World Cup year, part of the agreement between the two teams is that Barcelona will bring the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to South Africa to face the Brazilians.

The previous match was played at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, however the upcoming fixture between the two giants is set to be staged at FNB stadium on the 16th of May.
