Razak Brimah's Mamelodi Sundowns To Host Barcelona In a Friendly Today

Barcelona will take on Sundowns at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday.

Barcelona will face off Mamelodi Sundowns in front of a capacity crowd at the FNB Stadium, where Spain lifted the football World Cup in 2010.

"FC Barcelona has always professed its admiration for Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest figures of the 20th century, who after 27 years in prison went on to become the first democratically elected president of post-apartheid South Africa from 1994 to 1999", the Spanish side said in a statement last week ahead of today's fixture.

"It depends on which players the Barca coach uses - I'm sure he will do some rotation of players".

"Sundowns have just won the league and they will want to measure their progress on the field of play in issues such as tactical awareness and so on", he continued. "The matter of quality of our players and that is why I say the game will not be intense because Barcelona players are heading to Russian Federation - I don't expect 100% energy in the game", said the 48-year-old.

The friendly pits the new Absa Premiership and La Liga champions against each other.

"When a team is underestimated‚ and you are facing the favourites‚ the players who are the underdog play at 150 or 200 percent‚" the Stars coach said.

"I will enjoy the game, but even more when Sundowns win", concluded the legend.

Tickets for the Sundowns-Barca game were sold out by Monday night.
