Juventus vs Benfica match stats
Juventus have lost their last two Champions League games – only once in the history of the European Cup/Champions League have they lost three in a row, doing so between May 1968 and September 1972.
The Old Lady also lost their opening group stage game against Paris Saint-Germain, just the second time they’ve opened a Champions League campaign with a defeat (also 2017/18). They’ve never lost their first two group games in the competition before.
Weston McKennie could become just the third American player to score in consecutive Champions League games after Fabian Johnson (November 2015) and Christian Pulisic (March 2022). Filip Kostic has been involved in five goals in his last five appearances in major European competition (two goals and three assists), assisting McKennie’s goal on his Champions League debut for Juventus last time out.
Benfica have lost 10 of their last 12 away games against Italian sides, with their only victory in that run coming at Fiorentina in the 1996/97 Cup Winners Cup. They’ve lost all three of their visits to Italy in the Champions League. The Eagles will also be looking to win consecutive Champions League games for the first time since November 2016. Alejandro Grimaldo has been involved in four goals in his last four Champions League games (one goal and three assists), more than he had in his first 27 games in the competition (two goals and one assist). He’s provided more Champions League assists than any other Benfica player since the start of last season (4).
Juve have only won one of their six meetings with Benfica in European competition to date (one draw and four losses), with that coming in a 3-0 win in a UEFA Cup quarter-final in 1992/93. The Old Lady have lost both of their previous meetings with Benfica in the European Cup/UEFA Champions League, both of which came across two legs in the 1967/68 semi-finals. The last meeting between Juventus and Benfica in European competition came in the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League semi-finals, where the Portuguese side won 2-1 on aggregate (2-1 at home and 0-0 away in Turin).
