Juventus are set to begin the New Year in glorious winter sunshine. Antonio Conte’s men will kick off their mid-season preparations in the United Arab Emirates before moving onto Saudi Arabia.
Following the game against Udinese and a brief period of rest, Friday 30 December will see the squad make the trip to Dubai to commence a winter training camp.
The Bianconeri will then transfer to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday 4 January, where they will face local side Al-Hilal in Riyad at 7:15pm local time. The game has been arranged as a farewell to Arabian star Mohamed Al-Deayea.
While Conte’s men will be far from Italy, the unwavering efforts of the Bianconeri media team will ensure that fans are constantly kept informed of every development from the training camp. By simply browsing Juventus.com or accessing the club’s official social networking pages (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube), all Juve supporters will have the opportunity to follow the team’s progress through articles, posts, tweets and exclusive videos.
The final whistle in Riyad will signal the end of the tour, with the side then flying directly to Brindisi ahead of the championship restart. Lecce provide the opposition in Puglia on Sunday 8 January.
