Tottenham Hotspur to take on Juventus

Spurs meet the Italian champions on the 5 August 2017.

Tottenham Hotspur will face Italian champions Juventus on 5 August at Wembley Stadium connected by EE. The match will kick off at 5.30pm (BST).

The match, hosted by Relevent Sports, will be Spurs’ first appearance at the English national stadium since announcing it as their temporary home for the 2017/18 season while work is completed on their state-of-the-art new stadium in Tottenham.

Coached by Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus have been Italian league champions on 33 occasions including the past six seasons consecutively and their squad includes leading names such as Italy and World Cup winning goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala as well as Mario Mandzukic.

Both clubs will compete in the International Champions Cup in the United States in July, prior to meeting at Wembley.

Spurs’ manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “This match will form an important part of our preparations, particularly with the Premier League season starting just a week later. We met Juventus in Australia during pre-season last year and it was a highly competitive game, very useful for us, and we expect a similar game this year at Wembley.”
