The Bianconeri continues their frustrating run

Arkadiusz Milik gave Juventus a commanding early lead; however, Benfica quickly turned the tide and ended Juventus’ Champions League run.

Juventus both of their opening group games in this tournament for the first time ever, and they are now six points back of the leaders.

The Bianconeri needed a lift after their opening 2-1 loss to PSG and three draws in their first five Serie A games, 

Including a contentious 2-2 tie with Salernitana in which a last-second winner was wrongly disallowed by VAR. 

While Sandro joined Rabiot, Locatelli, Szczesny, Pogba, Chiesa, and Jorge on the treatment table, Angel Di Maria was back on the bench.

Despite the absence of Joao Victor, Lucas Verissimo, and Morato, Benfica had won 11 straight games.
