Italian champions Juventus travelled to Jakarta this week to visit Indonesia for the first time, much to the delight of the club’s huge fanbase there. The first match on their Asian tour saw the Bianconeri face off against an All-Star XI from the nation’s domestic league, and the encounter saw many of Juve’s international players back in action.
