Paris Saint-Germain take on a Saudi All-Star XI in a friendly tie on Thursday at King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

It is a special occasion for more than one reason. Firstly, the two superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will come face-to-face for the first time since December 2020 when Juventus beat Barcelona 3-0 in a Champions League tie. Also the Portuguese will finally make his maiden appearance on Saudi Arabian soil.

With Kylian Mbappe back from his brief holiday, a star-studded PSG side will go head-to-head against some of the top players from the Saudi Arabian Pro League.
