Juventus’ nightmare to the season continues in the UEFA Champions League under Allegri. Last night Juventus was stunned by Benfica in Italy to a 1-2 defeat and over the weekend they battled for a 2-2 draw at home to Salertina. A result that has kept them in 10th place in the league table after just 6 games into the season and pointless in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
Juventus remains the only top 10 club in Serie A with no goal advantage.
They have not picked a point in the UEFA Champions League after two games and look likely to drop to the second tier of the European tournament this season along with Maccabi Haifa in their group, where PSG and Benfica top with 6 points respectively.
Yesterday’s Champions League analysis:
Benfica came from behind to collect three Champions League points at the Allianz Stadium. Arek Milik had given the Bianconeri a flying start with a goal inside the opening five minutes. However, a penalty on the stroke of half-time converted by Joao Mario levelled the score, before David Neves completed the turnaround 10 minutes into the second half. Moise Kean struck the post, Dušan Vlahović had a goal disallowed for offside and Bremer lashed a shot over the bar as Juve pushed for an equalizer that did not arrive.
