PSG will soon take on an all-star Saudi team in an exhibition match that could feature the two biggest stars of all.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions are taking their annual winter tour to the Middle East on January 17th, staying in the region for three days.

They'll first travel to Doha to meet Qatari supporters and train in the Khalifa Stadium before moving on to Saudi Arabia.

There, they'll play a match against an all-star team made up of players from Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr with Cristiano Ronaldo, who has just signed for the latter club, expected to feature.

If he does, it will be the first time in two years that he and rival Lionel Messi face each other, and could well be the last time they do so.

Here's everything you need to know about the match.

When is Saudi All-Star XI vs PSG?

The friendly will take place on Thursday 19 January with the match kicking off at 20:00 local time at the King Fahd Stadium.

The venue, in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh, is where Al-Hilal play their home matches and has a capacity of 68,752.

PSG's schedule has been rearranged so that they won't play a competitive match until 10 days later, meaning they'll be able to field their star players such as Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

WIth the game coming in the middle of the season though, it's unlikely that any of them will play a full 90 minutes.
