Manchester United's fit-again captain Nemanja Vidic expects to see action in their grudge match against Barcelona.

Vidic is now looking forward to next week's meeting with Barcelona in Gothenburg as the Reds' pre-season preparations continue.

He told MUTV: "It [Barcelona] will be a tough game, but obviously it will be a good test for us. We need those games before the league starts. We have to know it's a friendly game and it doesn't count for the trophies and points.

"Last year we beat Barcelona in a friendly game and lost in a final, and hopefully it will be a good test and we will have a good game, but we have to prepare for the Premier League and Champions League. This is our target."
