Barcelona and Boca Juniors, two of Diego Maradona's former clubs, will play a friendly in honour of the late Argentine great on December 14 in Saudi Arabia.

The Maradona Cup will be held at Mrsool Park in Riyadh just over a year after his death. The 1986 World Cup winner died last November at the age of 60.

Boca said Monday in a statement the match would help "celebrate the legacy" of one of football's greatest ever players.
