Buenos Aires, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 26th Oct, 2021 ) :Barcelona and Boca Juniors, two of Diego Maradona's former clubs, will play a friendly in honour of the late Argentine great on December 14 in Saudi Arabia.
Boca said Monday in a statement the match would help "celebrate the legacy" of one of football's greatest ever players.
Maradona had two spells at Buenos Aires giants Boca, playing for them during the 1981-82 season before rejoining the club in 1995 for the final two years of his career.
He also made 58 appearances for Barca between 1982 and 1984, winning the Copa del Rey in his first season.
