The 56th Joan Gamper Trophy game sees hosts Barcelona take on Juventus at the Camp Nou on Sunday evening (20:30 UK time).
It will be a repeat of the 2005 fixture that saw 17-year-old Lionel Messi bedazzle Fabio Capello’s men but the six-time Ballon d’Or recipient will not be on hand after this week’s transfer bombshell.

Barcelona vs Juventus build-up & previous line-ups:
For the first time since the 2003/04 season Barcelona goes into a campaign without the presence of Lionel Messi in their first-team squad. It wouldn’t be long before the diminutive Argentine forward established himself as the world’s best player and incumbent Barça boss Ronald Koeman will miss his genius. As far as preparations go for next weekend’s La Liga opener against Real Sociedad it’s gone relatively well. Comfortable wins over Gimnàstic Tarragona, Girona and Stuttgart though was followed up by a narrow 2-1 loss at Red Bull Salzburg.
Much like their illustrious opponents this weekend Juventus are seeking to be top dogs in their respective championship next season. Andrea Pirlo was tasked with securing Juve’s tenth consecutive scudetto but failed, finishing in fourth and 13 points behind champions Inter Milan, and was subsequently replaced by former Old Lady manager Massimiliano Allegri. Heading into this weekend’s fixture they’ve played two pre-season games, winning both, a 3-1 victory over Cesena was followed by running out 2-1 winners against Monza.
- Barcelona (vs Red Bull Salzburg): Neto; Dest, Araújo, Lenglet, Alba; González, Busquets, De Jong; Gavi, Griezmann, Depay.
- Juventus (vs Monza): Szczęsny; De Sciglio, De Ligt, Demiral, Pellegrini; Ranocchia, Ramsey, Rabiot; Malvano, Brighenti, Kulusevski.

Player to watch: Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
After resting up following the Euro 2020 finals Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to play his first pre-season minutes for Juventus and it couldn’t be taking place at a more fitting venue. During an illustrious near decade spell at Real Madrid the Portuguese forward made no fewer than 15 appearances at the Camp Nou and in the process registered 14 goals. He also found the back of the net in his most recent trip to Spain’s second biggest city. Juve were drawn in the same Champions League group as Barça last season and on the final matchday Pirlo’s team secured an impressive 0-3 success with Ronaldo grabbing a brace (albeit both of those strikes did come from 12 yards).
