Manager Pressley said the game against the five-time Champions League winners was a fixture they just could not turn down.

He said: “Ideally in pre-season you want to build up slowly but we felt this was a terrific game for a club like Fleetwood.

“It’ll give us an opportunity early on in pre-season to pit our wits against some of the best players in the world, so it’s a really prestigious game for us.

“The bottom line is that we’ll play two different elevens on the night because it’s our first pre-season game and we’ll be building the lads up slowly.

“For ourselves it will give the whole squad the opportunity to play against a massive club which should be a great incentive for them all really.”
