Juventus edge MLS All-Stars in shootout, Davies features as sub

Alphonso Davies - vs. Juventus FC, MLS All-Star Game

ATLANTA, GA - The MLS All-Stars and Italian giants Juventus FC put on a show in front of 72,312 fans at the 2018 MLS All-Star Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with the storied Serie A club winning via shootout after the showcase ended in a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes. 

Vancouver Whitecaps FC phenom Alphonso Davies played 31 minutes off the bench, checking in shortly after the half-hour mark, and quickly getting the crowd on the edge of their seats with his patented tantalizing runs, this time as left wingback for the MLS All-Stars.

The two sides traded goals in the first half, with Juve striker Andrea Favilli opening the scoring with a 21st-minute header, and MLS Golden Boot front-runner and All-Star Game MVP Josef Martínez answering five minutes later.

Neither team would be able to break the tie in the second half, and Juventus came out on top 5-3 in the shootout. Juve converted on all five tries, and Mattia De Sciglio made the All-Stars pay with the deciding goal after Bradley Wright-Phillips missed during the previous turn.

Davies and the 'Caps resume MLS action with a visit to New York City FC on Saturday, August 4. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. live on TSN2. The 'Caps are back home on Wednesday, August 8 when they host Toronto FC in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final at BC Place. Visit whitecapsfc.com for ticket information.
