UEFA Champions League: Benfica defeat Juventus 2-1

The match result was a 2-1 win from Benfica, sending Juventus to their second loss in as many games to begin the group stage.

With Juve already six points behind both PSG and Benfica and at the bottom of Group H, Juventus needs to win both games against Maccabi Haifa.

For Juventus, no matter how well they started, it just went bad in a hurry.

First it was the penalty call on Fabio Miretti that allowed Benfica to tie things up.

They went into their typical desperation mode in the closing minutes but even that didn’t really result in all that much of anything.
