The inaugural edition of the Maradona Cup is here and it would see two sides--Barcelona compete against Boca Juniors at the King Saud University Stadium in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, December 14. The match, as the name says, would be played in honour of the Argentine legend Diego Maradona, who tragically passed away last year owing to a heart attack. Maradona, back in his playing days, had plied his trade for both these sides--Barcelona as well as Boca Juniors. While Maradona had two stints with Boca Juniors--in 1981 and 1995-98, he played for Barcelona from 1982-1984. Hence, this match would not be like any other club-friendly but a tribute to the former World Cup winner.

For Barcelona, one of the biggest attractions of this game would be Dani Alves, who was named in the squad by head coach Xavi. The Catalan club has not had a good time of late, suffering losses in both domestic and European competition and a win in this match might just be a confidence booster.
