Juventus’ campaign hit a new low yesterday when they were beaten at home by Benfica in the Champions League.
The Bianconeri hadn’t won in three games before that game, and fans were hoping they’d get their form back when they took on the Portuguese team.
Juve started the game well, as they have in many games this season, and took an early lead through Arkadiusz Milik.
However, the visiting Portuguese scored twice to nullify the result and secure their second win in as many UCL games, while Juve now have two losses from two.
The Bianconeri fans were not happy and some called for Max Allegri to leave.
However, the coach wants to stay. When asked after the match if he was part of the problem or part of the solution, he replied, as quoted by Football Italia:
“I feel part of the solution, I must find a solution.
“When I came back, I thought it would take time to build it. Unfortunately, I didn’t think we could lose two games in a row. The important thing is to do well and stay in the Champions League. These losses are annoying, but it is useless to talk too much now.”
Juve FC says
Losing to Benfica is painful, considering how much we needed a win last night.
The Portuguese team played with less pressure, but we are one of the best clubs in the world and we had the most expensive team.
It’s hard to justify that result or think that things will get better soon. It’s probably time to think about firing Allegri.
