Brescia eye friendly with Barca

Pep Guardiola's visit to Brescia last week has led to speculation that a friendly to mark the club's centenary could be arranged with Barcelona.

Il Giornale understands that Brescia are planning three days of festivities to celebrate their 100th birthday either in June, later in the summer or in September.

A lot depends on whether Brescia survive in Serie A. They currently lie second from bottom with just eight games of the season remaining.

Guardiola is very tied to the blue and white outfit and said that Brescia are the only club he could see himself coaching in Italy.
