Real Madrid vs Juventus live score, updates, highlights & lineups from preseason friendly

European champions Real Madrid will meet Italian giants Juventus in a classic European showdown that will be played in front of a sellout crowd at the Rose Bowl. More than 90,000 fans are expected to witness the preseason match. 

It’s an important one for Real Madrid, given it represents the final preseason test before things get serious beginning with the UEFA Super Cup on Aug. 10 against Europa League holders Eintracht Frankfurt. That will be the first trophy up for grabs in a 2022-23 season that will have Los Merengues occupied across a number of competitive fronts as the defending Spanish and European champs.

Saturday’s showdown also represents the end of Juventus’ U.S. summer tour. They beat Chivas Guadalajara 2-0 and tied Barcelona 2-2. The Bianconeri will be tuning up against a third Spanish opponent, Atletico Madrid, before opening the Italian Serie A season against Sassuolo on Aug. 15.

Real Madrid lost its U.S. tour match against Barcelona 1-0 and then tied Mexican power Club America 2-2. Karim Benzema scored in his first appearance in the latter match, and Eden Hazard found the back of the net via penalty.

Real Madrid vs. Juventus live updates, highlights from preseason

62nd min.: It’s a clinic from Real Madrid. Karim Benzema curls the ball that was destined for the low left corner, but Juve ‘keeper Perin saves it. The Real Madrid players don’t want to come off the field. They quickly took the corner kick so that the subs couldn’t make it in.

59th min.: Everyone’s getting involved for Real Madrid. Dani Carvajal ripped a shot that Juve’s ‘keeper saved, and then Toni Kroos took a shot that finished high. Real Madrid are about to make a number of subs.

54th min.: It’s been all Real Madrid to start the second half and they’re playing with the same verve and inspired teamwork.

Juve’s Manuel Locatelli had to make an incredible acrobatic leap to stop a clear chance, Bonucci had a miscommunication with his ‘keeper, and Real Madrid’s David Alaba pushed all the way up from center back to fire on goal. It’s not been pretty for the Italian side.

46th min.: Second half is underway. Antonio Rudiger is in for Eder Militao. Juan Cuadrado comes in for Angel Di Maria.

Real Madrid 1, Juventus 0

Half-time: Real Madrid with the deserved lead in this one. From the opening whistle the European champions showed their intent. They’re direct and vertical, and they attack in numbers with players interchanging positions and combining well. When Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr. are on the ball things are happening.

And for as fluid as Real Madrid are, Juventus are slow, disjointed and without ideas in the attack. Anything they do in the final third typically depends on Angel Di Maria’s creativity, which has been little today — it seems to be a low energy outing for him so far — or they depend on Dusan Vlahovic to create something for himself. But Vlahovic has been isolated and invisible. And there is no chemistry with Moise Kean. It’s the first game that Vlahovic and Di Maria are playing together, but Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri has a lot of work to do.</p> 

44th min.: Dusan Vlahovic has been anonymous, but he gets a ball in the box only for Eder Militao to recover acrobatically and clear the ball for a corner. Nothing comes of it.

38th min.: Not much happening in the game, but what’s clear is that Real Madrid are very dangerous when they’re running at the Juventus back line. Juventus doesn’t have as easy a time creating dangerous attacking moves. Things don’t flow as well as they do for Real.

27th min.: Juventus have a case for a penalty! But the referee does not call it and there is no VAR. Ferland Mendy inexplicably passes the ball back into his own box and Angel Di Maria beats Eder Militao to the ball. It looked like a penalty. But it remains 1-0.

19th min.: Goal Real Madrid! Karim Benzema converts the penalty. Two goals in two games for the best forward in the world.

17th min.: Penalty for Real Madrid! After a bad Dusan Vlahovic giveaway, Vinicius Jr takes the ball into the box and Danilo brings him down from behind. Clear penalty.

13th min.: Juve captain Leonardo Bonucci hits the top left corner of the goal on a set piece. Wow, how this game has changed. Moments later Dusan Vlahovic and Denis Zakaria get in each other’s way in the Real Madrid box. Juventus are back in this game.

11th min.: First serious attack from Juventus and it comes because left back Alex Sandro pushes all the way up to the end line. But the Juventus forwards can’t finish off the play.

5th min.: Manuel Locatelli with a bad, bad tackle on Fede Valverde. No card shown, and Real Madrid execute a training ground play.

The Spanish champions are off to an electric start. It’s another poor start to a match for Juventus (the same thing happened against Barcelona, with their giveaways only compounding the problems and the pressure).

1st min.: The match kicks off. Juventus are in their black-and-white stripes, while Real Madrid are in their lilac kits. After 10 seconds Real Madrid scores through Karim Benzema, but three players were offside.

10 mins from kickoff: Mr. Juventus himself is out in California rooting for the team he once repped in a big way.

75 mins from kickoff: The Real Madrid fans outside the Rose Bowl:

120 mins from kickoff: Organizers announced an official sellout 24 hours prior to the match, and fans without tickets were “highly discouraged from showing up at Rose Bowl Stadium.” Meanwhile, those with tickets were told to show up two hours before the match to ensure they get in on time.

Real Madrid vs. Juventus lineups

Dani Carvajal recovers from an ankle injury and starts at right back against Juventus, but Lucas Vazquez is likely to replace him at halftime given it’s Carvajal’s first outing of the preseason. In the only other lineup question, Federico Valverde beats out Marco Asensio and Rodrygo for the right wing position.

Real Madrid starting lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Thibaut Courtois (GK) — 2-Dani Carvajal, 3-Eder Militao, 4-David Alaba, 23-Ferland Mendy — 10-Luka Modric, 14-Casemiro, 8-Toni Kroos — 15-Federico Valverde, 9-Karim Benzema, 20-Vinicius Jr.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri previously confirmed that both Dusan Vlahovic and Weston McKennie would be making their preseason debuts against Real Madrid, but McKennie is nowhere to be found in the squad with early reports claiming a shoulder injury. Dusan Vlahovic makes his first start alongside Angel Di Maria and Moise Kean.

Backup Juventus ‘keeper Mattia Perin replaces regular Wojciech Szczesny, who has an adductor issue, while full-back/winger Juan Cuadrado starts on the bench.
