Mauricio Pochettino's men go up against the Italian champions on Saturday evening as both clubs conclude their pre-season friendly fixtures

Tottenham Hotspur host Juventus at Wembley on Saturday evening as their first season away from White Hart Lane begins.

Spurs to finish higher than Arsenal in PL - 4/5

Mauricio Pochettino's side will play their home games under the lights of the national stadium for the duration of the 2017-18 season, with Italian champions Juve kicking off proceedings in this weekend's friendly.

With Spurs starting their Premier League season in the North East against newly-promoted Newcastle, Saturday presents Pochettino and his team an opportunity to get used to their temporary surroundings before hosting rivals Chelsea in their Premier League debut at the 90,000-capacity ground.

Juventus are looking to continue their strong pre-season form ahead of the new Serie A campaign, as they prepare to challenge for what would be their seventh consecutive Scudetto.

GAME PREVIEW


Juventus celebrating

Spurs will be looking to get their Wembley monkey off their back before the 2017-18 Premier League campaign begins, as they prepare for their first league campaign away from White Hart Lane. 

The north London club's poor record at the national stadium has been well documented, and while the result against the Italian champions on Saturday means little in terms of overall gain, it will provide hope for supporters that the club can in fact settle into their temporary home ahead of the season.

All the latest transfer news and rumours

Spurs started their pre-season camp with a 4-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the International Champions Cup, before conceding six in their next two outings. 

Pochettino's side lost 3-2 to Roma, before Manchester City beat them 3-0 in their final ICC fixture. 

Juventus, who also competed in the ICC pre-season tournament, will use the tie as a final run out before tackling Lazio in the Super Cup final on August 13. 

Chiellini, Sami Khedira and Douglas Costa are likely to be recalled to Max Allegri's starting XI having been used as substitutes in the club's 1-1 with Roma last week, while new signing Federico Bernardeschi could be handed his first unofficial start for the Turin side. 

Tottenham and Juventus met last summer in an ICC tie which resulted in the Italian side winning 2-1, and while neither side will care too much about the final result at Wembley on Saturday, both managers will be looking for a psychological victory ahead of the new campaign.
