Italian footballers to face off against Spanish team in Europa League
Juventus will face Real Madrid in a first-leg encounter in the Europa League.
Juventus face Real from Turin on Wednesday, October 1, and will have to play a full-strength team in the second leg of their tie.
It’s a familiar Europa League fixture for Juventus, with the Bianconeri winning the last two matches by a combined score of 4-1.
In the first leg, Juventus were denied a second straight win at home when Ronaldo scored twice in the last 15 minutes.
They then lost 2-1 on aggregate to Athletic Bilbao.
