With the new season fast approaching, we think this friendly game at Wembley will be a keenly contested encounter with less than three goals

Tottenham's final pre-season friendly of the summer has been somewhat overshadowed by a row over ticket prices.

Fans were so unhappy at the high sums quoted for the visit of Juventus to Wembley that they decided to stay away from the game, forcing the organisers to slash prices in the hope of attracting a crowd.

How full the stadium is for Saturday's game remains to be seen, as Mauricio Pochettino's side finalise their preparations for their Premier League opener at Newcastle on August 12.

Juve, meanwhile, have their Italian Super Cup clash with Lazio to look forward to next weekend as well, meaning both sides will view this game at Wembley as a final chance to get up to full speed before the season begins in earnest. 

Of course, Italian champions Juventus, runners-up in last season's Champions League, are favourites although there is surprisingly little separating the sides in the win market. bet365 offer a victory for Juve at 11/8 (2.37) while Spurs can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) and the draw is offered at 13/5 (3.60)

Pochettino's side will be playing all their home matches at Wembley this season, where last term they endured a miserable record contesting their European games. The north Londoners won just one of the four matches they played at the national stadium, and the club will be hoping that they can quickly change that statistic.

That might be tough against Juventus however, and there will surely be plenty of interest in the Italians to win the game. Also worthy of serious consideration is the price of 43/40 (2.07) for under 2.5 goals.

Spurs had the best defensive record in the Premier League last season, while Juventus reached the final of the Champions League having conceded just three goals.

With the start of the season just around the corner, we should see a game that is taken seriously by both teams and that should lead to a tight meeting with two of the continent's best defences showing their strength. 

Under 2.5 goals at 43/40 (2.07) for a 2pt stake with bet365
