Roberto Martinez is relishing pitting his wits against a team he believes are the best in Europe.

His Everton side face Juventus on Wednesday evening in the first match of the USA tour.

Juve won Serie A at a canter last term and have strengthened further in the summer, bringing in Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

Martinez believes they are genuine contenders for the Champions League crown.

He told evertontv: "It is a great challenge. It is a glamourous game against a team I have admired for the last few years. From a tactical point of view, they are the best team playing a back three at this present time. It's going to be a terrific test - this is as good as it gets in terms of games for us.

"The forward line has increased in glamour with Llorente and Tevez, who we all know about. To have that forward line competing with the existing players like Vucinic and Giovinco, it's a very strong team."

The clash with Juventus takes place at AT&T Park, a stadium more regularly associated with baseball than football.

But Martinez is expecting a fine spectacle and isn't concerned about the repurposing of the facility.

He added: "I haven't played a game in a baseball stadium before but I have watched them in the MLS and the organisation has always been very good so I don'y expect any problems."
