Juve send over strong squad to take on Man Utd in testimonial

| 24.05.2011

Juventus are 11/4 to beat Manchester Untied in Gary Neville’s testimonial tonight, and on the basis of the squad there sending over, that looks a standout price.

Antonio Conte will take charge of Juventus for the first time at Old Trafford tonight following Luigi Del Veri’s exit on Sunday, and the new manager has included his stars for tonight’s trip to Old Trafford.

The full squad can be found at the bottom of the page but the likes of Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Luca Toni and Alberto Aquilani will all play a part in tonight’s game.

Juve haven’t been in the greatest of form in Serie A winning just four of their last 13 matches but they will be taking on a Manchester United midfield that wouldn’t look out of place on a day trip to the garden centre.

David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt will all, at some point, line-up in the Manchester United midfield tonight and the Juventus midfield will fancy their chances against a midfield with an average age of 35.8.

Manchester United are the odds-on 8/11 favourites to beat Juventus tonight and there is no doubt Gary Neville will want to go out with a bang.

But the Juventus squad looks strong and Sir Alex Ferguson will not want to risk his stars ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final, meaning Giggs and Scholes will only play a minor role.

In the 1996/97 season Juventus registered two 1-0 victories over a Manchester United side containing the likes of Beckham, Philip Neville and Nicky Butt and Conte’s side are 8/1 to win 1-0.

Full Juventus squad: Buffon, Motta, Chiellini, Melo, Salihamidzic, Marchisio, Del Piero, Manninger, Aquilani, Barzagli, Traore, Bonucci, Toni, Pepe, Martinez, Krasic, De Ceglie, Storari, Matri, Giandonato, Boniperti, Sorensen
