Juventus continues to sink with each subsequent game. The club’s fans will have another reason to call for Max Allegri’s resignation after the Bianconeri suffered a second consecutive defeat in the Champions League. The “Old Lady” lost at home to Benfica with 1:2.
And everything started more than well for Turin, who took the lead in the 4th minute after a goal by Arek Milik. The score was leveled in the 43rd minute when Joao Mario equalized from a penalty taken by Fabio Miretti.

The “Clovers” with a strong match in the Champions League
The people of Lisbon achieved the sweet triumph in the 56th minute. Mattia Perin narrowly saved Rafa Silva’s shot but was helpless at David Neres’ cross. Juventus could have gotten rid of the unpleasant turn of events, but a shot hit the post by Moise Kean.
At the same time at the Sami Ofer Stadium in Haifa, Maccabi started strongly against PSG, but would be left with just 180 seconds in which they led the French giants. Chery gave the home team the lead in the 24th minute, and almost immediately Leo Messi helped equalise.
In the second half, the rest of the big trio, Mbappe and Neymar, did what was necessary for PSG to become sole leaders of Group H with 6 points. Benfica has the same number, but the Portuguese have scored fewer goals.
