Barcelona vs Juventus, pre-season friendly: times, TV, how to watch and stream
Another stern test for Xavi’s men this evening in Dallas as his Barcelona side face Serie A giants Juventus at the Cotton Bowl.
FC Barcelona embark on their third pre-season game of the 2022 US tour and after wins over Inter Miami and Real Madrid, the Catalan side head to Dallas to face Serie A powerhouse Juventus.
Tonight’s test at the Cotton Bowl will be a chance to see new acquisition Robert Lewandowski in action with manager Xavi calling him “an unbelievable signing”.
Lewandowski made his first appearance for his new club in their 1-0 friendly win against Real Madrid on Saturday, starting up top before being subbed off at half-time.
The 2021 Ballon d’Or runner-up is coming off seven consecutive seasons of at least 40 goals in club competition, with Barcelona hoping he is still at the peak of his powers despite turning 34 years old next month.
Speaking to the media about the club’s new front-man, Xavi had nothing but praise.
“[Lewandowski] has adapted really well,” he said. “He’s very humble – he’s won almost everything in the world of football. He has the humility to work hard for the team, and for us he’s an unbelievable signing. So really good, really happy to have Robert in the team, and [against Madrid] he adapted really well.
Pogba blow for Juve
One new summer signing who won’t be on display in Dallas tonight is Juve’s Paul Pogba. The French midfielder is back at the Turin based club after a move from Manchester United and is a major doubt for the start of the Serie A season after he developed a problem in his right knee during training.
Angel di Maria is expected to play for the Italian side with Juve set to face Real Madrid after their Dallas test against Barcelona. Xavi’s men wind down their Stateside tour next weekend when they face MLS side NY Red Bulls in New Jersey.
