Liverpool have announced that they will take on Athletic Bilbao in a pre-season friendly at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on August 5, with kick-off at 5.15pm.
It will be a first game at the Aviva for Jurgen Klopp’s side since they beat Shamrock Rovers 4-0 more than three years ago.
Liverpool FC ambassador Ian Rush scored against Athletic the last time the teams met during Liverpool’s triumphant 1984-84 European Cup campaign.
Liverpool booked their place in next season’s Champions League on the final day of the Premier League season, and Bilbao should provide a strong warm-up for their upcoming European playoff.
The Basque club finished 7th in La Liga last season under Ernesto Valverde, who was recently appointed new Barcelona manager.
