Real Madrid vs Juventus: Old Lady better prepared for Maryland match

Kick-off: 2300, 04/08/2018

Stadium: FedEx Field

Juventus have a score to settle with Real Madrid when they meet in the International Champions Cup in Maryland this weekend.

The Whites have got the better of the Old Lady in the Champions League for the last two seasons, including when prevailing in the 2017 final.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo was the Italian side’s nemesis in those matches and he is now on their books.

Ronaldo will not feature at FedEx Field but we’re still backing his new team-mates to oblige at 21/10 as our first Real Madrid vs Juventus prediction.

A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds

Real Madrid were beaten 2-1 by Manchester United when opening their pre-season campaign in this competition in Miami earlier this week.

Karim Benzema pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time after Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera had put the Red Devils in control.

However, Real’s rustiness was there for all to see as the pace at Hard Rock Stadium dropped in the second period, as Julen Lopetegui’s side made 10 changes.

“We all want to win all the time, but the key thing was not the result,” commented new manager Lopetegui.

“In this preparation phase, we want to consolidate concepts. Also, for them it was their fifth game and for us just our first.”

We fear the Whites will still be undercooked for this contest and 21/2 for them to suffer another 2-1 loss takes the eye from the Real Madrid vs Juventus odds.

A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds

Juventus continued a successful tour of the USA when edging out the MLS All-Stars on penalties in midweek, having drawn 1-1 in normal time.

That looked a much more full-blooded contest than some of the ICC matches and should stand the Serie A title holders in good stead here.

Juve had previously eased past a strong Bayern Munich side 2-0 in Philadelphia and beat Benfica via spot-kicks in New Jersey.

Andrea Favilli has been a real find for the Old Lady on this trip, with the 6ft 3in 21-year-old Italy Under-21s striker bagging three goals so far.

Defender Mattia De Sciglio, capped 36 times by Italy, has also impressed and hit the winning penalty on Wednesday night.

Although this tournament is primarily about warming up for the new season, Juve now have a genuine shot at lifting the trophy if claiming another triumph.

Let’s add 17/4 for them to be leading at half-time and full-time to our Real Madrid vs Juventus betting tips.
