By Aries

It has been confirmed today that the three teams other than Arsenal taking part in this year’s Emirates Cup will be top opposition from Spain, Italy and Germany.

They will be Real Madrid, Juventus and Hamburg and the second Emirates Cup is scheduled to take place on August 2nd and 3rd.

It is expected, but not yet confirmed, that Arsenal will play against Real Madrid and Juventus.

Arsenal won the inaugural tournament last July competing against Paris-SG, Valencia and Inter Milan.

The tournament played a significant part in the team’s preparation for the grueling Premiership and Champions league competitions that followed.
