Senior Mamelodi Sundowns authorities drove by Yogesh Singh are as of now in Spain concluding an arrangement that will see the Spanish mammoths and as of late delegated class champions FC Barcelona come back to South Africa to play against the Brazilians.
An official declaration is required to be made‚ potentially by club president Patrice Motsepe‚ in the following 24 hours.
This will be the second meeting between the two sides as they clashed at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria in 2007 where a star studded Barcelona came from a goal down to Sundowns 2-1 in front of a full-house.
On that occasion‚ Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard paraded superstars like goalkeeper Victor Valdes‚ midfielder Ronaldinho and strikers Samuel Eto’o and Ludovic Giuly but a young Lionel Messi did not make the trip due to contractual issues.
Sundowns goal was scored by Surprise Moriri while Barcelona replied through strikes by Santiago Ezquerro and Marc Crosas in the second half.
