Juventus will entertain Benfica at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night as they look to secure a good result on their travels. The Italian club suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain recently, so they will be eager to get a win on board in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.
Massimiliano Allegri will set his team up in a 3-5-2 formation and could be inclined to name the same team that started against PSG earlier this month. Hence, we could once again expect to see Arkadiusz Milik lead the charge along with Dusan Vlahovic in the final third.
3-5-2 Juventus Predicted Lineup To Face Benfica
Mattia Perin will feature in goal for the Italian club after failing to keep a clean sheet versus PSG in his last European outing. Allegri could name a back three of Danilo, Leonardo Bonucci and Gleison Bremer as they look to focus on keeping things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Federico Gatti will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Fabio Miretti, Leandro Paredes and Adrien Rabiot could get a chance to anchor the midfield for Juventus as they try to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park.
Filip Kostic will fill in as the left wing-back while Juan Cuadrado looks to put his pace to good use on the right. Both of them will be responsible for stretching the opposition defence this Wednesday night.
Manuel Locatelli will be named on the bench as he looks to give a good account of himself as a substitute if required. Weston McKennie will also be available on the bench and could be called upon to influence the game in the latter stages following his goal-scoring performance versus PSG recently.
Paul Pogba remains sidelined for the Turin outfit because of a meniscal injury.
Arkadiusz Milik and Dusan Vlahovic will lead the line for the Turin giants on the attacking end of the field. Both strikers need to work together collectively and be sharp in front of the opponent’s goal if Juve want to come out on top versus Benfica in midweek.
Moise Kean will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if he gets called upon by Max Allegri.
