Juventus will look to take nothing less than three points when they play Benfica in the Champions League at the Estadio da Luz on Tuesday evening. It’s a must-win game for the Bianconeri and if they fail to get the victory their continental challenge will come to a premature end in Portugal. Massimiliano Allegri will be desperate to turn around the fortunes of his team and their thumping 4-0 win over Empoli in Serie A will have definitely boosted their morale before facing a survival battle against the Eagles.
Meanwhile, Benfica, are in a rich vein of form having won nine of their 10 matches in the Portuguese league. They just need three points from two games to ensure their progress to the knockouts of the Champions League, and having won 2-1 in Turin earlier in the season they will fancy their chances against the Italian giants.
