This friendly match against Claudio Ranieri’s side will be the most attractive of all preparation friendlies this season, and the last one before the team’s season starts with the Community Shield next Sunday. Juventus were one of the sides which strengthened their squad heavily in order to challenge for the Serie A and UEFA Champions League (in their dreams!). Their best acquisition was Amauri from Palermo whose goal tally will fire Juve’s goal difference in Serie A.
In this event, Man Utd will give their fans the chance to celebrate the winning of the Champions League and Premier League, with both trophies being unveiled to the public. The squad has been drastically weakened by the absence of Rooney, Ronaldo, and Anderson. But young players like Campbell have the opportunity to show their ability. Juventus may underestimate this player and this will be in Man Utd’s favour. He is expected to be fielded alongside Tevez in the Man Utd attacking front. We should wait to see if the youngster, who shone at Hull City and earned them a place in England’s highest tier, is capable of winning the challenge against the Vecchia Signora defence and one of the world’s best keeper Buffon.
Score Prediction: 2-0 for United with Simpson and Tevez grabbing a goal each.
