Aston Villa are set to take on Leicester City in a behind-closed-doors friendly this week.
Premier League action is set to resume on June 17 after a 3 month break, and clubs are scrambling to arrange friendly matches to help sharpen fitness levels.
Villa restart the campaign in the Premier League relegation zone, 2 points from safety with 10 games to play.
Due to the restart protocols in place because of Covid-19, clubs are not permitted to travel more than 90 minutes for a friendly fixture.
Leicester City meet the Premier League’s criteria for friendlies, and with both sides having contested 4 fixtures home and away against each other this season, have no conflict of interests in playing one another.
