Two sports greats will meet in a live head-to-head poker match, after Brazilian football legend Ronaldo has once again challenged tennis ace Rafael Nadal to seek revenge for last year's loss.

The two sporting greats will meet in the battle titled as "The Duel" as the Spaniard has accepted the challenge gracefully.

The action is scheduled to be broadcast live from London on 6 November, 2014, according to the announcement made by PokerStars in a press release on Friday.

The 14-time Grand Slam winner will resume his poker training to hone his skills and seal a second consecutive victory over Ronaldo.

The tennis great and football legend first met at the poker table at the European Poker Tour Prague Charity Challenge in December, which raised £79,000 for a great cause. Nadal sealed the victory, seeing off the likes of Ronaldo and Daniel Negreanu – the highest-earning live tournament poker player.

"It was my first live poker tournament when I last played against Ronaldo and one year later I'm more confident with my skill level. I really enjoy playing poker and the challenge of learning as quickly as possible, so I can't wait to get back into training on my game and to play against Ronaldo," said World no. 2, Nadal.

Ronaldo challenged Nadal for a battle once again after he got to know about his preparations and training.

"I challenged Rafa to a rematch after finding out he was preparing for another live poker game. The last time we played together Rafa won the match and it was a lot of fun. This time it will be different, though, because I have been improving on my own poker strategy and will be more prepared," said Ronaldo.

Nadal will look to seal back-to-back victories against the Brazilian. 

The game will broadcast live on YouTube and PokerStars.tv. Audience can also ask questions using the #AskRafa hashtag during the session.
