While Juventus and Real Madrid are preparing to battle it out in this season’s Champions League Group B, both clubs’ youth academy sides enjoyed winning starts to the Ale&Ricky memorial tournament, contested over the course of the weekend in Vinovo.
The Bianconeri, represented by Claudio Gabetta’s Giovanissimi Nazionali, recorded a deserved 3-0 win over Tottenham, with goals from Gabriele Galtarossa and Vlad Galatanu putting the final outcome beyond doubt following Ndiaye Moussa’s first-half free-kick.
Meanwhile, a goal in each half secured the Spanish giants a 2-0 triumph against Torino, who face Juventus at 16.00 CET in a highly-anticipated inter-city derby clash.
On the other side of the draw, amateur sides J-Stars and Chisola both got off to positive starts against Atletico Gabetto and Castelfiorentino respectively.
