Juventus stars arrived in Saudi Arabia on Friday night where they will face Coppa Italia holders Lazio in the Italian Supercup.
The Serie A champions landed in Riyadh for their last game before the winter break, which runs until the first weekend of January.
Juve stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt are hoping to secure back-to-back Italian Super Cup wins, having picked up the trophy last year at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah with victory over AC Milan.
The match is at the King Saud University Stadium on Sunday where they will be sporting a new look with an adidas shirt designed in collaboration with Saudi-Moroccan calligraphy artist, Shaker Kashgari.
The limited-edition jersey is a celebration of Arabic culture. Inside each number is a traditional Arabic calligraphy design that spells out the word ‘Juventus’, with each player’s name also written in Arabic text.
Juventus were still applauding Ronaldo after his incredible leap to score the winner against Sampdoria last week pushed the Italian champions top of Serie A.
Ronaldo, 34, defied his age and seemingly gravity when he met Alex Sandro's looping cross with what the club called "no ordinary header".
"As he rose up into the air, where he seemingly hung suspended for a split second of time, Ronaldo reached an impressive height of 2.56m (8ft 4 ins) when his head connected to the ball," Juventus said on its website.
"He jumped 71cms off the ground to nod in his 11th headed goal since joining Juventus."
The incredible goal just before half-time put Juve on 42 points, three ahead of Inter ahead of their match with struggling Genoa on Saturday.
