Pep to face Barca

Pep Guardiola's first game as Bayern Munich coach is set to be against his former club Barcelona with the Spanish giants to be hosted in a friendly at Munich's Allianz Arena on July 24.

Guardiola will succeed Jupp Heynckes as Bayern coach on July 1 and three weeks later the Bundesliga leaders will take on Barcelona in a charity match for the Uli Hoeness Cup, named after the current Munich president.

Having won 14 titles in his four years as Barcelona coach, Bayern pulled off a major coup for the German league by signing Guardiola on a three-year deal.

All revenue from the match will be donated to charity and the club are billing the game as Hoeness' belated 60th birthday present.

Guardiola quit Barcelona at the end of last season.
