Paris St-Germain vs Juventus - International Champions Cup Preview and Odds

July 27, 2017 01:30pm - Hard Rock Stadium

Pre-season Friendly

Spectators at the Hard Rock stadium in Miami will witness the first even clash between two giants of European football as Paris St-Germain take on Juventus in the International Champions Cup.

The Italian side are still looking for the first pre-season win after falling 2-1 to Barcelona in their opening game of this event. They still have a few weeks before their season starts for real with an Italian Super Cup clash against Lazio, and will also face Roma and Spurs before then.

After keeping a clean sheet over 180 minutes in last season`s Champions League semi-final clash with Barcelona, they will have been disappointed to have conceded twice in the first 26 minutes against the same opponents on Sunday. Coach Massimiliano Allegri will be hoping for a better showing here. They were perhaps saved further embarrassment in that match when the Spanish side decide to field a different XI in the second half.

PSG`s French Super Cup clash against Monaco is only two days away, so they can expected to field a weakened team here. As a result, Juventus should be clear favourites to win this clash. The French side are still hoping to add Brazilian superstar Neymar to their ranks before the season starts in August. However, momentum on that front seems to have stalled for the time being.

They began their pre-season campaign with a win via a penalty shootout against Roma following a 1-1 draw over 90 minutes. They followed that up with a disappointing 4-2 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, in which Kevin Trapp saw red just after the interval.

With PSG`s season set to get underway on Saturday, they are likely to rest key players here. As a result, a comfortable win for the Italians should be expected.
