One game, one goal to finally score a win

Juventus and Benfica comes into this game with a goal to finally score a victory since both of them are in a losing streak. Juventus only won one out of their last six matches. On the other hand, Benfica lost 10 out of their 12 matches in the European stage. These two teams failed to impress in their previous match, with that, they want to take home the victory in this game. It will be Juventus who will host their game against Benfica on September 15, 2022 at 3:00 AM (GMT+8).

Juventus is hoping they could finally see their luck in the European stage. This club has been nothing but a disappointment in their domestic league, the result of their games is quite unexpected. Now that they enter the continental stage, they are hoping not to bring their misfortunes for a better placing at the standings. On the other hand, Benfica currently looks good in the tournament despite their losing streak. Luckily, in the Champions League, they are enjoying a stellar start where they scored their first victory in the tournament.

After being defeated by Paris last week, Juventus continue its search for winning ways in their matches. They experienced a 2-1 defeat against Paris on their last game after being undone by Kylian Mbappe. Luckily for them, Weston McKennie is there to score a goal for them. Coming into this game, this squad can no longer afford another loss as it may cost them slipping in the group stage of the tournament. If this team goes back to their winning ways, they already have the chance in the Round of 16. However, they need to go all-out because traditionally, Juventus struggled during their meetings against Benfica. They only won once against their opponents and lost four times.

Injuries are one of the main reasons why Juventus is not having a good season. Aside from their long-term absentees, Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot, Angel Di Maria, and Wojciech Szczesny will also miss their next match. Juan Cuadrado, and Arkadiusz Milik will play since their suspensions only apply in Serie A.

Having a stellar start in the Champions League is actually surprising for them. This squad lost 10 out of their 12 European fixtures where three of which are in the Champions League. Luckily, seems like this team finally got their groove in the Champions League as they were able to get a victory. For their first game under Roger Schmidt in the Champions League, they won against Maccabi Haifa with a 2-0 score. This encounter with Juventus could mean something for this squad. Although it is still early to say, result of this match will prove how far this team will go into the Champions League.

Jaoao Mario and Goncalo Ramos will finally come back for Benfica which adds power in their lineup. These two are expected to start for the visitors in this match against Juventus.
