Spurs, who travelled to Australia without Harry Kane and the remainder of their England contingent but gave starts to new signings Victor Wanyama and Vincent Janssen, trailed 2-0 at half-time.

Dominic Ball was dispossessed in the sixth minute and the mistake was immediately punished when Paulo Dybala struck the opener.

Another error - this time a poorly-cleared corner - enabled Medhi Benatia to nod home the second shortly after.

It was now Juventus' turn to get caught in midfield and Erik Lamela reacted with a fine finish into the bottom-right corner.
