Arsenal v Juventus Men’s Preview, Line-up and Score Predictions ahead of competitive return

Arsenal will face-off with Juventus today in a friendly match which can be seen live through each club’s streaming platforms.

The Gunners will be looking to use the match to get as much match fitness into their players as they can, with the Premier League campaign set to resume on Boxing Day after the international break, with a trip to West Ham awaiting us.

While today’s match will be about readying our players, it will also be about maintaining confidence after an extremely bright start to the PL season, and we have managed to keep spirits high thus far in winning the Dubai Super Cup, and we will be going in search of another victory this evening.

We go into today’s clash without main striker Gabriel Jesus unfortunately, with the Brazilian having succumbed to injury whilst with Brazil in Qatar, but Ben White has made his return to action since leaving the England squad for personal reasons, and is available. William Saliba remains with the France squad ahead of tomorrow’s WC final however.

Predicted Arsenal XI:

Ramsdale
Tomiyasu White Gabriel Zinchenko
Partey Xhaka
Vieira Odegaard Martinelli
Nketiah

While it would be ideal to have the same starting line-up out today as the one who will start against the Hammers in just over a week’s time, I feel that Saka could potentially do with a little rest. Martinelli and Ramsdale have been back with the squad for around the same amount of time, but having played much less minutes, I would be happier for them to both be thrown straight back in.

With our friendly action getting much more serious as we close in on our return to competitive action, I would expect us to be extra focused on getting things right today, and while Juventus are a big name, they have had plenty of struggles in recent seasons, and were recently rocked by the majority of their board leaving.

I can see goals today, and feel like a 3-1 win seems a fair result, with Odegaard and Martinelli both to get their names on the scoresheet, although I would prefer to see Eddie Nketiah get a confidence boost ahead of leading the line for us in the coming weeks.

What are you wanting to see most from today knowing we will be right back in the thick of things on Boxing Day?

  1. Morocco vs Croatia is a match of regret because the performance of both teams will be below expectation. Croatia should be careful of the counter attack because Morocco are very likely to register a goal from it. There may also be a penalty or the match may go to extra time but at the end of it all Morocco will carry the day. Comfort is coming to Africa.

  2. First of all, I think Arsenal are at home to West Ham on 26th of December, in the Premier League after the international break for the hosting of Fifa Would Cup in Qarta.
    As regard to the Arsenal vs Jeventus friendlies notch that’s taking place at the Ems tonight. All things been equalled in the game with the selected Gunners who’ll play in the match.
    I am backing the Arsenal team that-s preferred to be caled as the Gunners to in the match take on the Italian clue side Jeventus and beat them squarely in the match 4 nil at full-time. And this walloping of Juve by Arsenal tonight, will happen. With Vlahovic watching in amazement.

    I am backing the Arsenal team that’s preferred to be called as the Gunners to in the match as they take on the Italian clue side Jeventus , beat them squarely in the match 4 nil at full-time. And this walloping of Juve by Arsenal tonight, will happen. With Vlahovic watching in amazement from Qarta.

  4. Going by our line up which is almost at full strength aside Saka, Martineli, Saliba and the injured Jesus against an under belly Juventus side, I see this not more than training match and any injury or knock should be the last thing to play for, especially when playing with players who want to prove some points. Arsenal should avoid the slightest of injuries. This match result gives us nothing than tune up.
