Juventus will play in Major League Soccer's All-Star game in Atlanta this summer.

Italy's Serie A champions for the past six seasons are the latest high-profile European club to face the league's top players in the annual showcase. Last season, Real Madrid won the game on penalty kicks in Chicago.

Juventus is Italian soccer's most successful club, with 33 league championships. Led by forwards Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus is currently in first place in Serie A.
