Arsenal can’t count on all the main players yet, but at the same time they had a decent match against Milan a few days ago.
Juventus also has personnel problems, but the team has a very solid reserve and is able to play at full strength today.
Given the friendly status of the match, Juventus are unlikely to sit on the defensive, the team has very high-quality players in attack.
Prediction for this match: Juventus not to lose.
Both teams to score in 2nd half.
