In pictures: Female soccer fans in Saudi Arabia attend Juventus training session

Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus target their first title of 2019 in the Italian Super Cup today against a backdrop of controversy and protests over human rights issues and ticket restrictions imposed on female fans by hosts Saudi Arabia. The one-off match is normally between the reigning Serie A and Italian Cup champions. As Juventus won both trophies last season they will take on AC Milan, the losing Cup finalists, at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.
