Having now arrived in America, they drew with Dortmund thanks to second-half goals from Andre Almeida and Alfa Semedo before Eduardo Salvio scored the winner in the penalty shoot-out. Emre Can made his first appearance against Bayern Munich, while Joao Cancelo also started for the first time this summer since signing from Valencia.
Sami Khedira, Medhi Benatia and Wojciech Szczesny are with the squad and could feature at some point after their early World Cup exits. Andrea Favilli — Scored both goals in the win against Bayern Munich last time out and will hope to impress once more before being loaned out to Genoa. Juventus held on for a win.
Benfica and Juventus last met when the Portuguese side triumphed over two legs in the Europa League semi-finals in Benfica won at home and drew in Turin to book their place in the final… in Turin. The two teams have met several times before, with Benfica beating Juventus in the European Cup semi-finals but the Italian side triumphing over two legs in the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.
Incidentally, Juventus went on to win the title that year, but Benfica have twice lost their subsequent finals after eliminating Juventus. Juventus were impressive in their win against Bayern Munich — showing good form despite being without some big-name attacking players.
Andrea Favilli took his chance to impress, while a solid defence led by Giorgio Chiellini did their job at the other end. Benfica also looked good, in the second-half at least, in their draw with Dortmund but the way they conceded an early two-goal lead highlighted their weaknesses too.
They will be no pushovers — Nicolas Castillo is already in the goals and they have beaten Sevilla as well as their penalty shoot-out defeat of Dortmund. You can comment on any preview at the GoonersGuide Facebook page.

The first leg in Lisbon is critical to Benfica's chances of making it through to the Final and this could be a huge season for the side that have won the Portuguese domestic title and also have two domestic Cups to compete for. They have also only lost 2 of their last 15 games in the Europa League while Benfica have won 10 of their last 12 home games in European competition since being beaten by Barcelona in October Benfica have won 18 of their last 20 games in all competitions and they have won 7 in a row coming into this game.
They have also won 15 of their last 16 home games including the last 5 in succession since the draw with Tottenham Hotspur in the Last Eduardo Salvio and Silvio are both going to be missing for the home team. Juventus There is little doubt that Juventus fans would have been extremely disappointed with the side falling out of the Champions League at the Group Stage this season when considered one of the dark horses to win the competition.
The only saving grace from entering the Europa League was the chance for Juventus to win the tournament that will be concluding in their home stadium. This was the toughest Semi Final test for both teams and it is unsurprising that a lot of people believe the winner is likely to win the competition. Juventus have continued their dominance of Serie A and look set to win the title with four games left to play and that means they can concentrate on finding a place in the Europa League Final.
They have won 5 of their 6 games in the Europa League this season and Juventus have won all 3 away ties, but you also have to remember that they had lost 3 of their last 4 away games in the Champions League. Juventus have been on a very similar run to their opponents Benfica and have won 15 of their last 17 games in all competitions including the last 5 games in a row. They have also won 7 of their last 8 away games in all competitions, but the exception was a loss at Napoli in the League.
Head to Head This is the third European tie that Benfica and Juventus are going to play against one another and both teams have won one of the previous two ties. Prediction This is a fascinating tie, but one where Juventus are favoured to come through over the two legs.
Juventus are one third of the way towards winning the International Champions Cup and can take another step closer with a win over Benfica. The Portuguese side did well to get back into their game with Borussia Dortmund but even without a few star players, Juventus look too strong for their opponents.

Over 2. However, there are those occasions where the game is a slow-paced stalled one, but we doubt this will be the case. With how the Primeira Liga is going so far, the winner will be decided on the slightest of margins. The reasoning here is relatively similar to one of the Over 2. This pick leans on the fact that Porto is always the team more favored to score, and at the time where they concede a lot, this gives a higher chance of Benfica finding the net themselves.
