Watford to play themselves on Saturday

Watford will play themselves in the final pre-season friendly of their Italian training camp after Ligue 1 side Nice pulled out of the proposed friendly clash.

There had been talk of a match-up between Watford and Borussia Dortmund's 'B' side earlier in the day, but the club have since confirmed a friendly tussle between an 'A' and a 'B' side.

The Hornet's staff had worked hard to find suitable opposition within a reasonable distance, but to no avail, and now Gianfranco Zola's side will play a friendly between themselves in Mals/Malles.

Supporters making the trip to northern Italy are welcome to attend the match, which kicks off at 5pm local time.

The game will be played at the following address: Sportcenter, Via Glorenza 7, Malles/Mals, South Tyrol.
