Team news

Juventus: Massimiliano Allegri needs to react after a disappointing start of the season, despite what happened against Salernitana. Juventus definitely need a fresh new start in the Champions League’s group stage after the opening match against PSG, and Allegri will count on both strikers Arek Milik and Dusan Vlahovic. Allegri changed his tactical system to play with two strikers upfront, especially after the positive impact of the Polish striker since his arrival. 

Benfica: The Portuguese side started off well in their UCL journey with the win against Maccabi Haifa, and another positive result against Juventus would be crucial since they are heading to the two consecutive games against Paris Saint-Germain. They are expected to start with the same starting eleven that won one week ago at home. 

Prediction 

Juventus can’t really miss winning this match, considering how that will change their possibilities to go through the group stage this season. They get the job done. Pick: Juventus 2, Benfica 1.
