Manchester City are set to lock horns with Spanish giants Barcelona in a charity game at Camp Nou.
Having won the Premier League for the fourth time in five seasons, Pep Guardiola and his star-studded group have made a strong start to their latest title defence by picking up seven points from three games. City have beaten West Ham and Bournemouth as well as drawing 3-3 with Saudi-backed Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.
Following on from that six-goal thriller, Guardiola and his team jetted out to Spain for a mid-season friendly.
Barcelona welcome their former manager and household names such as Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland for a charity game staged for ex-Barcelona goalkeeper Juan Carlos Unzue who was diagnosed with incurable ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) two years ago. All proceeds will go towards ALS research.

FT: Barcelona 3-3 City
3-3 is how the match ends!
As friendlies go that was a pretty entertaining one. City took the lead through a rather fortuatous Julian Alvarez goal, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drew Barcelona level.
Memphis Depay strikes either side of a Cole Palmer tap-in looked to have sealed the win for Barca, but an emphatic late penalty from Riyad Mahrez ensured that the game finished all-square.
City’s players got the run out that Guardiola wanted, but there will be an anxious wait to find out the severity of Luke Mbete’s head injury.
