International Champions Cup
Date: Saturday, 4th August 2018
Kick-off at 23:00 UK
Venue: FedEx Field (Landover).
Real Madrid and Juventus are meeting again this year after their Champions League semifinals tussle earlier this year.
Ronaldo was superb for Real Madrid in the first leg, scoring a double against his new team mates one of which was a stunning Bicycle kick. In the second leg Juventus defeated Real Madrid 3-1 but still couldn’t go through as the aggregate read 4-3 in favor of Real Madrid.
Real Madrid lost their first international Champions Cup game this off season on Wednesday. They were beaten 2-1 by Mourinho’s Red Devils.
It seems they are already feeling the impact of Ronaldo’s absence in their team. Now they will be playing against Ronaldo’s new side Juventus.
Meanwhile, Juventus are unbeaten so far this off season, they defeated Bayern Munich 2-0 in the first game. In the second outing, they played out a 1-1 draw against Benfica before winning 4-2 in the penalty shootout. They also were victorious against MLS all-stars with a 5-3 penalty shootout.
The new star signing Cristiano Ronaldo won’t be facing his former side Real Madrid as he is set on missing the entire pre-season. He will join up with his teammates when they return to Europe.

Real Madrid vs Juventus: Prediction
Juventus have been good in this tour, they are unbeaten and have scored in the games played so far. While Real Madrid’s display against Manchester United wasn’t so convincing as they went 2 goals down before pulling 1 back.
We are backing Juventus to win this game after 90 minutes but we expect to see goals on both sides. Juventus have conceded in the last two outings in 5 his tour and they are likely to concede at least once.
