Juventus vs Benfica – International Champions Cup : Juventus and Benfica face off in New Jersey for another duel of this International Champions Cup.
The Italian side is playing, just like the Portuguese side, the 2nd match on this competition.
The Italians should be the most discussed team on this transfer window, after the signing of the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo that still won’t play in this match or the following ones against the MLS’ stars and the fierce duel against Real Madrid that would maybe put
Cristiano Ronaldo against his former club.
Juventus started their pre-season just recently, but this Italian side is being discussed for a long time due to their big signing on this transfer window.
Juventus will present themselves on the new season with two Portuguese players: João Cancelo and Cristiano Ronaldo, and that reinforces the status of one of the strongest teams in Europe and in the World,
assuming the clear objective of winning the Champions League, since that domestically they will be even bigger contenders to the Serie A title.
On the first match of this International Champions Cup, Juventus has beaten Bayern München by 2-0 with 2 goals from the Italian striker, A. Favilli.
This match marks the reunion of João Cancelo with his youth club and with some of his former teammates.
Benfica will play their 2nd match in this competition and in the 1st one, things ended up not going that poorly.
Benfica got off to a strong start on the match and they dominated until Borussia Dortmund’s first goal, that soon after the first would score a 2nd, with those 2 goals being scored by the striker Max Philipp.
Benfica from the 2nd half was better and brought other ideas and right at the start of the 2nd half, they would reduce the disadvantage by André Almeida and during the 2nd half,
Alfa Semedo would tie things up 2-2, on a result that would maintain itself until the 90 minutes.
Benfica still hasn’t lost on this pre-season and they have been increasing the difficulty level of their encounters gradually. They are eyeing the Champions League’s tie that is upcoming soon,
with Benfica having been improving considerably and favourably from match to match.
Juventus vs Benfica – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Juventus has shown against Bayern München that even without most of their future starting structure, they have plenty solutions to bother any team and on the match against the Bavarians, they have won and didn’t have great defensive flaws.
I believe that Juventus will end up defeating Benfica, imposing the Eagles the first loss of this pre-season.
