Former Juventus teammates reunite in a friendly match between Juventus and A-League All Star. 

Serie A champions Juventus secured a 3-2 victory against A-League All Star after scoring twice in the dying minutes of the game in a pre-season friendly encounter at Sydney's Olympic stadium.

Juventus, who started with a line-up including the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon, Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente, Patrice Evra and Paul Pogba, were seen trailing a goal behind following a goal from Marcelo Carrusca within the first ten minutes of the match.

However, the match wasn’t over yet, as the All Star players would have anticipated as a poor clearance from Michael Thwaite resulted in a late equaliser from Paul Pogba, followed by a winner from Simeone Pepe who scored from a long-range effort during additional time.
