PSG, Augsburg

PSG will take on Bundesliga side Augsburg in a pre-season friendly scheduled to take place at the Parc des Princes stadium on Wednesday.

PSG are coming off a surprise draw against French minnows Chambly. The match ended 2-2, with Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi and rising star Xavi Simons scoring a goal each for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

PSG started their pre-season schedule with an emphatic 4-0 win over Le Mans, but Chambly gave them a quick reality check last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Augsburg's also played out a 2-2 draw in their last pre-season friendly. They played Azerbaijani heavyweights Qarabag and had to return from a 2-0 deficit to end the game all square.
