“Due to the latest developments, the scheduled friendly match between Atl├ętico Madrid and Juventus in Israel has been cancelled,” Juventus said in a statement.

“Due to the current security situation, Comtec Group has announced that the match between Atletico Madrid and Juventus at Bloomfield Stadium tomorrow, Sunday 7 August, will not be played.”

Israel launched airstrikes on Gaza on Saturday and the Palestinian militant group responded with a barrage of rocket fire, in the worst escalation of violence in the region since last year.

Juventus open their Serie A campaign with a home tie against Sassuolo on August 15, while Diego Simeone’s Atletico will play their La Liga opener against Getafe on the same day.
