Aaron Ramsey, who joined on a free transfer from Arsenal, is recovering from injury, but is close to being available, and has been picked by Wales manager Ryan Giggs for fixtures against Azerbaijan and Belarus starting on September 6.
Adrien Rabiot, who also arrived on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, did make his Juve debut from the bench, replacing Sami Khedira just after the hour.
Paulo Dybala, the subject of continuing transfer rumours, was named in the matchday squad but did not make it onto the pitch, with Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernadeschi chosen ahead of the Argentina international.
