United's problems in front of goal this preseason continued, despite Sir Alex Ferguson sending out a strong side with the Community Shield against Portsmouth just four days away.
Juve will not start their Serie A campaign until the end of the month but they matched United in a tight first half, with neither goalkeeper seriously tested.
Lee Martin was perhaps unlucky not to be awarded a penalty after being brought down by Zdenek Grygera, while Darren Fletcher blazed over from a tight angle on the left.
There were few chances after the break either, although Paul Scholes spurned one glorious opportunity as he headed wide from point-blank range.
United defender Wes Brown insisted at the final whistle there were plenty of positives to take from the game.
"It was a good run-out," Brown told MUTV. "Juventus are a good team and we knew it would be a tough game.
"We managed to get a few of the young lads on and it was good experience for them.
"At this stage of the season itâ€™s all about fitness and getting sharp, and weâ€™ve got another game on Sunday as well. Hopefully everyone will be ready for Newcastle on the opening day of the season."
