It’s the gameweek 5 in the UEFA Champions League, and top European teams would face each and battle it out to win the prestigious trophy. This time it’s a magnificent match in group H as Benfica will host the Italian giants Juventus at the Estadio da Luz.
Now Benifca have been playing incredibly well in the Champions League as they currently 2nd in their group and they still haven’t lost a game in the UCL. They are also at the top of the table in their domestic league and in the league too they are unbeaten having won 9 out of their 10 games.
The Portueguese side would be aiming to top their group and to do that they’ll need to win all their remaining matches with the hope that PSG drop points and this s why they’ll do everything possible to win the game.
However, beating Juventus won’ be that easy for Benfica as Juve are coming into this age on the brink of UCL elimination s last time out they experienced a shock result against Macabbi Haifa as they were defeated 2-0 by them.
So now the Serie A side are 3rd in the table and if they want to qualify for the knockout stages, they’ll need to win both of their remaining games and hope that Benfica loses both of their matches. But with the astonishing crowd support that Benfica would be receiving and with a possibility for them to top the group might make them win this match. All in all, it would be an interesting game.
