Today, Saturday, it was decided to suspend the friendly match between Atlético de Madrid and Juventus, tomorrow, Sunday, in Tel Aviv.
This came after the Italian club expressed doubts about the security situation in the context of the escalation in the region between Israeli forces and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement.
Subsequently, Juventus canceled the trip to Tel Aviv, so the Madrid team will not travel to Israel either.
Atlético had trained this morning for an hour before boarding their plane to Tel Aviv, but Juventus’ decision caused the Madrid club to follow the path of their rival.
Atlético have not yet announced the destination of their last pre-season friendly; That starts next week against Getafe in the first day of the Spanish League.
Atlético played three friendly matches in the preseason; They beat Numancia 4-0, beat Manchester United with a clean goal and defeated Cádiz 4-1.
