Del Piero to meet former club Juventus for first time in friendly with A-League All Stars
SYDNEY - Alessandro Del Piero will play against former club Juventus for the first time when he joins an A-League All Stars side for a friendly against the Serie A champion in August.
Del Piero, who is now playing for Australian A-League side Sydney FC, spent 19 years with Juventus — including 11 seasons as captain — where the former Italy star scored 290 goals in 705 matches.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli said last year he planned to bring a full-strength squad to Sydney.
