Juventus Youth Academy: Busy weekend of action for J-Academy

Juventus’ academy sides enjoyed a busy weekend of tournament football last week at the “Mamma Cairo” and Ale&Ricky memorial meetings, and the coming few days will be no different with the Primavera, U17 and U15 sides all in action.

Fabio Grosso’s youngsters will look to build on their third place play-off win over Milan last week, with a friendly against Atalanta at 12.00 CEST on Saturday 29 August at Juventus Center in Vinovo.

Felice Tufano’s U17s on the other hand will be on the road, as they head to Reggio Emilia for the “Previdi” tournament, kicking-off against Sassuolo on Friday 28 August at 20.45. The following morning at 10.00, the Bianconeri take on Hellas Verona with the quarter-finals scheduled for the same afternoon. Tufano will no doubt hope that his charges will still be in contention for the tournament’s grand finale on Sunday in Carpineti.

Last but not least, Davide Cei will take his U15 side to Cinisello Balsamo for the Gaetano Scirea tournament, named after the legendary Bianconeri defender. Cremonese will be the Giovanissimi’s first opponents on Friday evening at 20.30 before Cei’s young guns turn their attentions to Team Ticino on Sunday.

After a week’s interval, the action will recommence on Thursday 3 September for the quarter-finals, with the semi-finals and final to be played the following Saturday and Sunday.
