Swansea City Under-23s have a new date for their Premier League International Cup quarter-final showdown with Benfica.

The eagerly anticipated clash will take place at Landore on Wednesday, March 11 (7pm).

The tie was initially scheduled to be played on Wednesday, February 19, but the Portuguese side requested a postponement due to concerns over the outbreak of Mumps throughout the UK.

The young Swans, who topped Group D with seven points from nine, will be aiming to reach the semi-finals of the competitions for the second time, having also achieved the feat in 2016-17.
