Match Information

 Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne, Australia Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne, Australia

  • Key Stat

    Key Stat: Juventus have won Serie A five years in a row, while Spurs' last title was 55 years ago.

  • Expert Verdict

    Expert Verdict: Juve have had slightly more time to adjust to the Australian conditions, with Spurs without almost an entire team of players who are on holiday after Euro 2016 duty. Allegri's Juventus are without key stars too, but they should have enough to come out on top in this game, which could well be a thriller with lots of goal action for the spectators to enjoy watching.

JuventusJuventus Team News, Updates and Facts

Juventus suffered a shock loss to Melbourne Victory in their previous International Champions Cup game, the Serie A champions beaten on penalties after a 1-1 draw. Coach Max Allegri has a young squad as many of his big names are enjoying a rest after their exploits at Euro 2016.

It is still early in Juve's pre-season but Allegri will want to see an improvement here, so the likes of Benatia and Pjanic could come into the team after being named on the bench against Victory, while Carlos Blanco might start after his stunning long-range goal in that match.

Juventus likely XI: 

Neto, Alex Sandro, Rugani, Blanco, Benatia, Asamoah, Pjanic, Lemina, Dybala, Cerri.

Tottenham HotspurTottenham Hotspur Team News, Updates and Facts

This will be the first game of Tottenham Hotspur's pre-season campaign so it is tough to judge how ready they will be for the match, which is being played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will also be without their Euro 2016 stars, so predicting their team requires a level of guesswork, but new signings Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen could play. Cameron Carter-Vickers, Luke Amos and Josh Onomah are among the young players included in Spurs' ICC squad.

Tottenham Hotspur likely XI: 

Vorm, Trippier, Wimmer, Walker-Peters, Onomah, Winks, Son, Carroll, Chadli, Eriksen, Carter-Vickers.

Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur Head-to-Head Stats

Tottenham Hotspur have never played Juventus in a competitive match before, so that will add a touch of extra motivation to their players for this historic meeting between the two clubs.

Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur: Prediction

Pre-season is all about fitness and with both sides very early in their preparations for the new season, the coaches are likely to be more concerned about the minutes their players get under their belts rather than the scoreline. Allegri's Juve have been all-conquering domestically and as this is their second ICC game, rather than Spurs' first, that experience could give them the edge.

Juventus v Tottenham Hotspur: Betting Tips

Both teams are available at 13/8 for this game, which is a sign of how hard it is to predict the outcome of pre-season matches, even for the bookmakers. Perhaps the best value in the match odds market is for the draw, which can be backed at 12/5, while both teams to score is available at a very tempting 3/4 for this game. Over 2.5 goals also appeals at a good price of 5/6. Odds of 7/4 on Dybala to score any time against Tottenham also stands out as a very worthwhile bet.
