Old Lady may fight to subdue Eagles
Benfica have returned to the same form they did during their participation in the Champions League last season and present the right amount of threat Juventus to make betting on them around evens seem rather shaky. Benfica are proving to be a threat for Juventus. Old Lady are still untrustworthy against a formidable European opponents and Benfica could be classified as such having made it to the quarterfinals of the competition last season.
Juve were beaten by Chelsea in their major group stage match in the previous year, and then were eliminated in the knockout stage after a masterclass in tactical strategy by Unai Emery. Benfica is, on the contrary however, was 2nd in an encounter which included Bayern Munich and Barcelona and eliminated Ajax from the last 16.
With the help by Roger Schmidt, the Eagles have won the five UCL matches this season and even won the opener of Group H with Maccabi Haifa in very comfortable style.
A single or both of them could be blanked
The Lisbon giants are averaging a record away from home. should be a serious worry for Massimiliano Allegri, as Benfica have not suffered defeat in the most recent 5 Champions League road games. Juventus have not won a single in their five recent Champions League games, so choosing the hosts with the possibility of a double-chance market might appear to be a good choice.
However, better odds are available in the draw, in all likelihood and, with Benfica taking all points they could from their opening game at home Schmidt's side may think that a draw is sufficient to win in Turin. Juventus which were not able to score a goal through VAR at Salernitana in the final minutes of Sunday's game, have also lost in four of their six games.
Even though Benfica's Italian giants have just not scored in their fifteen European home matches the draw preferable in correct score betting because Benfica have been able to draw three drawless games in their recent eight UCL away matches. They have had six clean sheets in their recent nine Champions League road games while Juve were beaten during their most recent home Euro game.
