Benfica Vs. Juventus Live Stream: Champions League Game Prediction, How To Watch Online, Time, Odds

For Juventus, the stakes couldn’t be higher as they face Benfica on Tuesday. Anything less than a win means both Benfica and PSG will progress from Group H into the knockout rounds. Max Allegri’s Champions League run this season has been less than stellar, with just one win to their name. The challenge doesn’t ease up against Benfica, who have shown strong form in the group stage.

Despite a significant win over Empoli recently, Juventus finds itself in a tough spot in Serie A, sitting eighth in the standings. The club’s management has affirmed Allegri’s position until the season’s end, but it’s clear that Juventus has been falling short of expectations for some time now.

Their Champions League journey is on the brink of ending early, and they’re also lagging in their quest for a league play qualification spot. On the other hand, Benfica has put themselves in a favorable position, managing a draw with PSG and clinching victories in their other matches.

Storylines

Benfica: The team has built its success on a solid defense, conceding only three goals in four Champions League games. With everyone fit, Coach Roger Schmidt has his best players at his disposal, including the formidable Rafa Silva and Joao Mario, posing a significant challenge for Juventus.

Juventus: The team’s attack has been lackluster, and the absence of Angel Di Maria will make their task even more daunting in the upcoming away game. Scoring has been a struggle, with Juventus managing to net more than one goal in only two of their recent five matches. An early deficit could prove costly, as making up ground in the game will be twice as hard. Juventus must demonstrate resilience and a winning mentality, as settling for anything less would be deemed a failure.

Prediction

Benfica’s defense has exceeded expectations in the Champions League and is likely to stand firm again, blocking Juventus’s path and ensuring their own advancement to the round of 16. Final Score Prediction: Benfica 1, Juventus 0.
