Barcelona’s Joan Gamper Trophy matches against Juventus on August 8 will no longer take place at the Camp Nou but have been switched to the Estadi Johan Cruyff instead.

The double header, with the men’s team and Barca Femeni both in action, was due to take place at the famous stadium with 19,869 supporters in attendance but plans have once again been disrupted due to Covid-19.

The Catalan government have now confirmed the games will now take place instead at the Estadi Johan Cruyff with 3,000 spectators allowed in to watch.

The game is Barcelona’s final pre-season friendly before the new La Liga season kicks off.

Ronald Koeman’s men begin the campaign with a home game against Real Sociedad on August 15 and then head to San Mames for a first away match versus Athletic.

Fans are still expected to return to the Camp Nou at the start of the season but numbers may be restricted.
