VILLA’S pre-season programme looks to have been completed with an August date against RB Leipzig in Germany.
The club said last week they were looking at a European date before the start of the season – and that spot has now being filled.
Villa play Leipzig on Bundesliga club on Saturday, August 3 , with a 3.30 local time kick-off.
And it will be a crucial game as it is the last one before their Premier League return the following weekend.
Leipzig will provide tough opposition, the Express & Star points out that they will be in this season’s Champions League.
It will be Villa’s second foreign trip of pre-season as they have long been confirmed for a clash with MLS side Minnesota United on July 17.
And last week, Villa announced Midlands’ friendlies at Shrewsbury on Sunday, July 21 (2pm) then Walsall, Wednesday, July 24 (7.45pm), before travelling to Charlton on Saturday, July 27 (3pm).
