TALL ORDER - Juventus have only won two of their last eight away games against Portuguese teams in European competition, drawing two and losing four, including all three at Benfica, 2-0 in
the 1968 European Cup semi-final, 2-1 in the 1993 UEFA Cup and 2-1 in the Europa League in 2014.
CURRENT CREDENTIALS - Benfica are unbeaten in their last five Champions League games, two wins and three draws - the last time they recorded a longer unbeaten streak in the competition was more than a decade ago, going six without loss between September and December 2011.
