Paris (AFP) – Paris Saint-Germain announced on Wednesday they will play a friendly against second-tier Le Havre in front of up to 5,000 fans to prepare for the Champions League last eight tournament and two domestic cup finals.
PSG returned to training last month ahead of a French Cup final against Saint-Etienne on July 24, a League Cup decider with Lyon a week later and the European competition in Lisbon beginning on August 12.
The Le Havre fixture on July 12 will be PSG’s first match since the Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund in mid-March, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Ligue 2 side’s Stade Oceane will be able to hold 5,000 spectators with the French government set to ease restrictions on sporting and cultural events from July 11.
The French title-holders are set to start the defence of their Ligue 1 crown on the weekend of August 22 and are expected to play two further pre-season friendlies.
