Juventus, through its official website, has announced that on 8 August the teams of Allegri and Montemurro will challenge Barcelona in the Gamper trophy: “It’s official: Juventus’ summer is enriched with a challenge of enormous charm. The bianconeri on 8 August they will challenge Barcelona at the Camp Nou, in the Gamper Trophy, with a splendid novelty: the challenge will be double: first face to face between the first two women’s teams, then the two men’s teams on the pitch.
Juventus Women and Barcelona Femení will open the day in a match between the Italian champions and the Spanish champions. The Catalans, who also won the UEFA Women’s Champions League and Copa de la Reina last season, represent an ideal high-level opponent to prepare for the first official matches of the season (starting on 18 August). Among other things, it is not the first time that the two teams face each other: in the 2019/20 season a double confrontation in UWCL with two Barça successes.
At 9:30 pm, Max Allegri’s Juventus and Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona will be on the field. Bianconeri and blaugrana have often faced each other in great challenges in the Champions League (the last time last season), while it will be the second time in the Gamper Trophy: the previous one, dated 24 August 2005, ended with the success of Juve. 2-2 in regulation time, with goals from Del Piero, Trezeguet, Iniesta and van Bronckhorst, and then victory on penalties.
The appointment is therefore on 8 August for a day of great football, the perfect starter for the new season “, reads Juventus.com.
