Singapore National Stadium
Juventus +120 / Tottenham Hotspur +225 / Draw +230
Juventus and Tottenham will play each other in the International Champions Cup.
Juventus have been very active in the transfer market as the Italian champions have signed multiple key players. Matthijs de Ligt was the biggest arrival at Juventus as the Dutch defender signed earlier in the week. Other big-name players such as Aaron Ramsay and Adrien Rabiot have also joined Juventus. With such a large squad, Juventus will hope for an effective preseason where the manager can test a large number of the players. Juventus will likely play a strong team in this match since this will be the first time that the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Emre Can and Miralem Pjanic will take the pitch this preseason.
On the other side of the coin, Tottenham are also playing their first match in the preseason. Tottenham last played in the Champions League final where they were defeated by Liverpool. It has been a relatively quiet transfer window for Tottenham although they have lost key players like Kieran Trippier. As far as the players in this match, Tottenham should have a strong squad playing with the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Christian Eriksen all back with the club. This is expected to be a very tough preseason match for Tottenham as Juventus have a very strong squad who will all be desperate to impress their manager.
This match between Tottenham and Juventus is set to be played at the Singapore National Stadium in Singapore.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Juventus to win this match. Both teams should be rustly following the off-season. I see Juventus having an advantage since their bench is significantly stronger than that of Tottenham. Players are likely to rotate throughout the game so the greater bench strength should be vital for Juventus.
