The newly crowned South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions are set to lock horns with the Blaugrana for the second time in their history, in a match that will used to commemorate the 100th birthday of the fallen former state president Nelson Mandela.
Ever since the announcement that Barcelona would be heading to South African shores, there has been much excitement, but one question on everyone’s mind was just what kind of squad would Barcelona bring to South Africa, considering that they still have a La Liga game remaining as well as it being a Fifa World Cup year, with the 2018 showcase event just a month away.
Nonetheless, Barcelona have put to bed rumours of bringing a ‘B side’ as stars such as Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Luis Suarez have all made the trip to South Africa. This should excite fans and perhaps the Masandawana fans too who have an opportunity to test themselves against the very best in the world.
However, with criticism also being directed towards the due to the timing of the friendly and the risk of injury, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has previously admitted that his side would take it a bit easy and treat the spectacle as a friendly game.
