What is at stake for Juventus against Benfica


Juventus are experiencing another disastrous start to the season. Even his epic failed him and the sample was the purpose nullified for offside in the 98th minute of Sunday’s game against Salernitana and that, had he got on the scoreboard, would have given Massimiliano Allegri’s team victory. And in the Champions League, for the first time, this Wednesday’s match against Benfica at the Allianz Stadium is very important for Juve.

Coming back to the controversial goal against Salernitana, it was scored by Arkadiusz Milik and many suspect that later it will not be repealed. The fact is a final 2-2 and the ‘vecchia signora’ is 8th in the Serie A table, 4 points behind the three teams leading the classification, Naples, Atalanta and Milan.

Allegri, who explained on Tuesday in a press conference that Ángel Di María has recovered from his adductor injury but is unsure whether he will include him in the starting eleven, knows how much is at stake for his team against the team of Lisbon.

It is not in vain that Juventus started this Champions League losing in group H against PSG at the Parc des Princes (2-1) and they need to add to this second day. It is not for nothing that Benfica is the great rival of the black and white in the fight for second place in the round of 16, if we assume that the colossus PSG will be first in the group. Allegri has already admitted that “the double confrontation with PSG will be wonderful, but we will play the pass against Benfica”.

The dismissals of Milik, Juan Cuadrado and Allegri himself against Salernitana give an idea of ​​how nervous the youth team is. Leonardo Bonucci, captain of Turin, admitted that this Juventus is not paying, neither in the game nor in the results, as it should be. From being champion of Italy nine times in a row to finishing fourth in the last two. Juventus certainly have a lot at stake against Benfica. At all levels.
