Report: Juventus U18s 0-2 City U18s

City grabbed a deserved victory in Turin as the Under-18s fought to a 2-0 victory against a young Juventus side.

Sam Bell and Louis Britton dealt the damage with goals in either half, with Juve kept quiet and limited in attack at the Juventus Centre.

Lochie Robertson had one first-half save to make before Bell turned in a cutback from Joe Low just before half-time.

City continued to create chances and Louis Britton put the result beyond doubt when he took control of a ball over the top, held off his marker before firing the ball across the keeper and into the far corner.

It was a moment of history for the youngsters, with the friendly being the first ever meeting with the European giants' Academy.

City U18s: Robertson (Buse), Taylor, Harper (Conway), Smith, Low, Burford, Towler, Williams, Bell (Britton), Day, S Pearson (Gould). Subs: Jamie Taylor, C Pearson.
