Newcastle United have confirmed that they will face Braga during their preparations for the new Premier League season.

Rafa Benitez's side will take on the Portuguese side on Wednesday, August 1 in what will be their penultimate friendly fixture before the new Premier League season.

Newcastle take on Porto on Saturday, July 28 and will remain in the country ahead of the Braga clash, which will kick-off at 7:30pm at Estádio Municipal de Braga.

Braga, who finished fourth in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season, will prove good opposition having reached the knockout stages of last season's Europa League.

This is expected to be the final pre-season fixture announced by the Magpies after a number were confirmed earlier this summer.

Fans will be able to enjoy a trip to Ireland as well as a fixture against Hull, before FC Augsburg visit St James's Park.
