Barcelona call off Juventus friendly over players’ stomach bug

Barcelona have cancelled their friendly game against Juventus over a stomach bug affecting several players in the squad.

The club made this known in a statement on their official website on Saturday.

According to a Spanish website, Barca Universal, the club was scheduled to face Juventus in their first pre-season friendly in the United States of America later tonight at Levi’s Stadium in California.

“FC Barcelona hereby informs that the game against Juventus FC, scheduled for today, July 22 at 7:30 PM at Levi’s Stadium, as part of the Soccer Champions Tour, has been cancelled.

Training had been going on over the past couple of days in the US and all seemed set for the match to take place in a few hours.

However, it appears that several players within the squad have been hit by a stomach bug which has prompted the La Liga champions to cancel the friendly encounter against the Bianconeri.
