Football – Champions League Group Stage

Juventus - Benfica - free football predictions for today.

Juventus was competitive to a certain degree last time out in Europe away against much-favored PSG but still, come with a close 2:1 defeat in their opening match. The visitors from Italy conceded two times during the first part over Mbappe, as mentioned above not being severely outmatched despite the bookmaker's opinion, and managed to reduce later in the 53rd when McKennie was effective after a beautiful header, unfortunately, lacking a bit more creativity with the ball to possibly pull out a draw in this one. Offensive midfielders Di Maria (3/1), Locatelli (5/0), Rabiot (3/0) and goalkeeper Szczesny (2/0) are doubtful for the moment for this one. Injured remain Peeters, midfielder PogbA, forwards Jorge and Chiesa.

Benfica did a fine job in their opening clash against Maccabi Haifa when they met the expectations and routinely celebrated with a 2:0 result, playing back in Lisbon. The hosts looked a bit insecure during the first part but came out of the locker room with more aggression in their play, and scored two times over Rafa Silva and Grimaldo, thus continuing to appear quite confident across all competitions in the running season. Defenders Verissimo, Victor, and Morato (4/1) shouldn't be involved.

No hesitations in Turin

Juventus suffered an expected defeat last time out in Paris, but surely enough, the Old Lady has more than enviable experience in Europa, and always has to be considered as a dangerous squad regardless of who is on the other side of the pitch. Even so, the Eagles are displaying quite confident performances, as they have a perfect record so far in all competitions, and even though being a slightly underestimated side here, I am positive that they will be quite competitive in the upcoming clash, and it's difficult to see anyone walking out with a clean sheet the way Juventus looks unreliable this season.
