This will be the second time in a decade that Barca plays Sundowns.

"For Sundowns it certainly is a place to show everybody what they can do at a good level‚" Eymael said.

The high-profile global club friendly between Mamelodi Sundowns and Spanish powerhouses FC Barcelona is scheduled for tonight.

What could be learned from the end-to-end football - mostly in the direction of Denis Onyango in Sundowns' goal‚ but the other way too - was that Downs‚ as they found out at the 2016 Club World Cup‚ do not have a credible defence at this level.

"It depends on which players the Barca coach uses - I'm sure he will do some rotation of players. Now it will be a different game", said Eymael. But we say that Sundowns are the "Brazilians" of SA‚ so we will see.


"I think it will be a very interesting game‚ and it will help Sundowns to gain more experience at the higher level‚ and prepare them for the Champions League‚ I think".

The encounter between the this year's Absa Premiership winners and La Liga champions will be broadcast live on both SABC and SuperSport.

"So‚ yes it's a friendly for Barcelona".

Ronaldinho's free-kick was only punched half-clear by Sundowns keeper Calvin Marlin, and Santiago Ezquerro turned the loose ball home as it came back into the box.

Sundowns players were quick to look for selfies against their star-studded opponents, while the teams celebrated together on the podium as Puyol lifted the trophy that had been handed over on the night.
