Chelsea and Barcelona are set to face each other in a friendly match set to be staged at Saitama Stadium starting from 1:30 PM EAT.
This will be Frank Lampard’s first real test since his appointment as Chelsea head coach. The new boss has handed Christian Pulisic a start with Tammy Abraham getting the nod up top. Antoine Griezmann makes his debut for Barcelona, who will have two Busquetses in midfield (Oriol is no relation, incidentally) while De Jong will start on the bench.
