The probable formations

Juventus is in Lisbon to try to stay attached to the Champions League, aware that even winning at home to Benfica would keep the situation very complicated. Three defeats in four matches and only three points in the standings speak very clearly for Massimiliano Allegri’s team. On Tuesday night, the Tuscan coach is leaning toward deploying the attacking pair formed by Vlahovic and Milik to try to unhinge the Lusitanians’ rearguard.

Likely lineups

BENFICA (4-2-3-1): Vlachodimos; Bah, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo; Florentino, Fernandez; David Neres, Rafa Silva, Joao Mario; Gonçalo Ramos. All. Schmidt.

JUVENTUS (3-5-2): Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Milik, Vlahovic. All. Allegri.
