Barcelona 2 vs Juventus 2: Final Score, Highlights & Lineups

Must read

Listen now

Barcelona, fresh from savouring a Clasico victory over arch-rivals Real Madrid in Las Vega continued their pre-season preparations in America when facing another European superpower in the form of Serie A giants Juventus.

The Bianconeri also form part of the inaugural Soccer Champions Tour and lined up against the Blaugrana at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas.

Both sides have bigger tests to come in the 2022-23 campaign, as they seek to restore domestic dominance in their respective countries, but there was little friendly about a heavyweight encounter in the United States.

New arrival Robert Lewandowski was looking to score his first goal in a Barcelona shirt after being held scoreless during last weekend’s El Clasico triumph over Real Madrid. Barca walloped MLS side Inter Miami 6-0 to kick off its summer tuneups.

Juventus have played just one preseason friendly, against Chivas Guadalajara, coming away with a tidy 2-0 win, but a meniscus injury to star acquisition Paul Pogba has cast a shadow over preparations for the new campaign.

Both clubs are a couple of weeks away from kicking off official competition. Juventus will play both Madrid clubs next before opening their Italian Serie A campaign against Sassuolo on Aug. 15.

Barcelona will play MLS’s NY Red Bulls and Mexican side Pumas UNAM ahead of their Spanish La Liga home opener against Rayo Vallecano on Aug. 13.
