What friendlies will Juventus play this summer?
Who will the Bianconeri go up against before they bid to win a fifth successive Serie A title and end their two-decade wait for another Champions League triumph?
Juventus’ preseason program will begin in Australia and finish in Italy, taking in trips to China, England and Austria along the way.
The Bianconeri, who are bidding for a sixth successive Serie A title, are one of 17 participants in this year’s International Champions Cup and will play both of their matches in Melbourne, with the city’s Juve fans no doubt hoping to get a first glimpse of new signings Miralem Pjanic and Dani Alves.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men will open their campaign against Melbourne Victory at the MCG on July 16 and then meet Tottenham at the same venue three days later.
Juve will then travel to Hong Kong to take on South China before moving on to London for a friendly with West Ham at the Premier League club’s new home at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Aug. 7.
The Italian champion faces German outfit Koln in Linz the following week before wrapping up the preseason program on Aug. 17 with a game against a team comprised of the club’s reserves and Primavera players.
