Juventus play out worst Champions League season ever following Benfica loss

Juventus’ 4-3 loss to Benfica means that they have now recorded their worst start to a Champions League campaign.

The Bianconeri had to win in Portugal to have any chance of making it to the next round of the Champions League, but they crashed out of the competition because of the 4-3 defeat. They were 4-1 down for a majority of the second half but goals from Arek Milik and Weston McKennie made the scoreline more respectable.

But despite everything, it is the worst Champions League group stage campaign ever for the club, who have won just once in five games and have just three points so far. A better goal difference than Maccabi Haifa is the only reason why they are in the Europa League spot, but they face Paris Saint-Germain next.

This is also the first time since the 2013/14 season that the Old Lady will play in the UEFA Europa League, with Max Allegri’s job now in doubt.
