Peace Cup 2009 Final: Aston Villa vs. Juventus


Juventus will face Aston Villa tonight in the championship of the Peace Cup after their 2-1 victory against Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid on Friday.

Cristiano Ronaldo converted a penalty kick during that match but suffered his first defeat as a Los Galácticos player.

Aston Villa manager Martin O’Neill feels that the Italian giants will provide the kind of stern test which will help sharpen his players ahead of the new season.

The English Premier League side defeated Porto by the same score in Malaga despite finishing with 10 men. Both of Villa’s goals were scored in the first half.

Game time is 10:00 p.m. CET (4:00 p.m. ET) at the Estadio Olimpico in Sevilla, Spain.

UPDATE: Aston Villa won 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out against Juventus after both teams had failed to score at the end of extra time.
