Barcelona have announced plans for a friendly against Chapecoense as a mark of respect for those who died when the team's plane crashed last November.

The Brazilian club were on their way to play in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional when the jet carrying players crashed.

Barcelona confirmed the match will take place on August 7 at the Nou Camp.
