Arsenal will face Juventus in a friendly at Emirates Stadium on 17 December.
The match is the third to be confirmed for the World Cup break and will come hot on the heels of a training camp in Dubai that includes showdowns with Lyon and AC Milan.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping to have most of his players back from Qatar by the time the Old Lady visits London although it’s possible some could be involved in the third-place play-off and final which take place on the same weekend.
Arsenal return to Premier League action on 26 December so it’s possible an additional behind-closed-doors match could also be squeezed in.
The last time Arsenal and Juventus faced each other in a friendly was in the Emirates Cup in 2008. On that occasion, David Trezeguet sealed a 1-0 win for Claudio Ranieri’s side.
