  • Competition: UEFA Champions League
  • Date: Wednesday, 14th, September 2022
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK/21.00 CET
  • Venue: Allianz Stadium (Torino)

All eyes will be on the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday, where Juventus and Benfica will measure their strength ahead of the second round of the UEFA Champions League group stage. Juventus had a difficult task in the premier of the UEFA Champions League, as they visited the Parc des Princes. The match started with PSG's dominance, but could have ended in a draw, as Juventus were equal to their rivals, losing narrowly 1-2 at the end. In a group that includes Juventus and PSG, Benfica are aware that they will have to leave their last atom of strength to secure the knockout stage. Namely, The Eagles justified their role as favorites and opened this competition in a great way with a 2-0 triumph over the outsider of Group H - Maccabi Haifa.

Juventus vs Benfica Betting Tips: BTTS

The last time these two teams met was in 2018 in the International Champions Cup, where Juventus won 2-1, but only after extra time, and now we should expect an open game from both teams. Juventus have struggled with results in recent weeks, as The Old Lady have managed to triumph just once from their previous five games, while they welcome Benfica on a three-match winless streak. In fact, Juventus has faced various defensive problems of late, the best evidence of which was last week's draw with Salernitana, where they conceded two goals and kept just one clean sheet in their last five.

Meanwhile, Benfica has looked relentless since the start of the new campaign, as The Eagles have won each of their previous 16 games, including the club's friendlies this summer. A truly amazing winning streak! The fact that Benfica have been impressive in attack in Europe should not be overlooked, scoring 14 goals from just five UEFA Champions League games, including qualifiers. Juventus have big problems with injuries, so they will have a difficult task to achieve a triumph against a highly motivated Benfica. We do not believe that Juventus will be able to keep Benfica, who are flying high in all competitions. All things considered, it is difficult to pick a winner of the match as Benfica are closer to victory, but we think goals from both sides is the safer bet.

As mentioned, Juventus are facing a long list of injured players, so coach Massimiliano Allegri will not be able to count on at least 9 players, 4 of which are doubtful.

So, Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot and Angel Di María are on the verge of returning to the field, but it is hard to say that the coach will take risks with this trio.

First-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is also in the recovery room, but his return is getting closer. In that case, Mattia Perin should be between the goalposts again.

Meanwhile, coach Roger Schmidt has injury problems in the back line, as Lucas Veríssimo, Morato and Joao Victor are all still recovering from injuries.

In that case, the German manager should again start with the same back three as against Maccabi Haifa, including 18-year-old António Silva, who played the full 90 minutes against Maccabi.
