PSG to play Barcelona friendly

Paris Saint-Germain will face Barcelona in a friendly at the Parc des Princes in the French capital on 4 August.

Both clubs confirmed the fixture on their websites, which comes a week before the start of the new French Ligue 1 season.

It will be Barça's third game under new coach Tito Vilanova, after a friendly away to German side Hamburg on 24 July and a meeting with a Moroccan select side in Tangier four days later. No date has yet been announced for the kick-off to the 2012/13 La Liga season.
