PSG confirmed this morning its three-day trip to Riyadh on January 17 to play a friendly for commercial purposes against top players from Saudi clubs Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr, including Cristiano Ronaldo. The French champion had to ask the Federation for permission to postpone his Cup match corresponding to the round of 32, which has put pressure on him in recent times.
PSG, which does not yet know its opponent, began talks with the Federation a few days ago to delay the date of its commitment to the Cup and organize this trip to the Gulf. The body that is ruled Noël le Graët has accepted that instead of playing on the weekend of January 21 and 22, it will play on the 23rd, so that the table of Christopher Galtier have enough time to recover to face Wasquehal, Reims Sainte-Anne or Pays de Cassel.
The French Federation’s favorable treatment of PSG will allow a final front in between Cristiano Ronaldo Y Messi. The Argentine, who will have his first minutes in the league against Angers this Wednesday after winning the World Cup, will fly with the rest of his teammates to Saudi Arabia to face a match without any sporting significance, but with media interest fueled by both of them.over the past fifteen years.
