Fabio Quagliarella's first-half goal was enough to lift Italian club Juventus to a 1-0 victory over Mexican outfit Chivas Guadalajara in a friendly football match on Thursday.

Quagliarella's goal in the 12th minute insured Juventus notched their second victory in three nights on their North American tour. They defeated Mexico's Club America 1-0 on Tuesday in New York.

Jorge Mora's free-kick in the 80th minute hit the left post for Guadalajara, who remain without a victory or a goal in their series of exhibitions. Chivas fell 3-0 to Real Madrid on 20 July and faces Barcelona on 3 August in Miami.

Quagliarella took advantage of a miscue by Chivas defender Jonny Magallon to score the game's only goal. Magallon's slip gave Quagliarella a window and he fired a right-footed shot into the left corner of the net.

Three members of Mexico's FIFA U-17 World Cup championship team - Carlos Fierro, Giovanny Casillas and Jose Pablo Tostado - made their debuts for Guadalajara about 15 minutes into the second half.
