Tomorrow, Tottenham Hotspur host Champions League runners up Juventus at Wembley Stadium in the final tune-up before the start of the Premier League season. This morning, Juventus manager Massimo Allegri released a full list of the players that will travel to England to participate in the friendly. And there are a LOT of names on that list.
- Alex Sandro
- Del Favero
- De Sciglio
- Douglas Costa
The official release says that Stefano Sturaro will not travel due to injury, and our friends at Black, White and Read All Over noted that Daniele Rugani and Federico Bernardeschi are also not traveling with Juventus for unknown reasons.
It’s a friendly, but if the last match against Manchester City is any indication, Mauricio Pochettino could set up with a very strong team in the first half at England’s national stadium. This is the one and only opportunity to get some match time on the Wembley pitch before the start of the Premier League season, and Juventus is a stiff test even when they aren’t playing their first choice XI.
The match will kick off at 5:30 p.m. UK (12:30 pm ET) and will be televised on Premier Sports in England, ESPN in the USA.
