The Italian giants need a miracle in order to avoid their first Champions League group-stage elimination since the 2013/14 campaign. Not only they must beat Benfica on the road but they also need to beat PSG next week and Benfica to drop all three points against Maccabi Haifa.

And they must do that without many important players. Max Allegri must deal with several injuries with Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes, Federico Chiesa, Paul Pogba Mattia De Sciglio, and Gleison Bremer out of action.

On top of that, Juventus is dealing with internal issues. The Turin Prosecutor Anna Maria Loreto has confirmed that 16 Juventus directors are under investigation for alleged false accounting and false communications to the market

Their form seems like it could be improving but they’ve been poor all season long under Max Allegri sitting eighth in the Serie A standings, 10 points behind leaders Napoli. Despite winning back-to-back domestic league games, they have struggled in front of goal this season. Max Allegri’s approach is criticized for being overly conservative and their humiliating 2-0 defeat to Maccabi Haifa put them on the brink of an early Champions League exit.

Juventus’ first away win of the season across all competitions came less than two weeks ago when they picked up three points on the road against Torino. They lost both Champions League road games and they dropped all three points at home to Benfica.

Benfica is having an excellent season all around under Roger Schmidt as they sit top of the Primeira Liga. They’ve won eight of their nine games, the exception being the 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain. Confidence must be skyrocketing in the home camp after beating FC Porto last weekend on the road. A draw would be enough for them to earn a last-16 spot but we don’t expect them to play for the draw.

Celtic has nothing to play for but pride. They are sitting last in their group with just one point earned in four games and nine goals allowed in the process. Celtic has only kept one clean sheet in their last 29 matches in the Champions League outside of qualifiers.

Celtic put together a fine run of form in recent weeks and will look to claim their first Champions League win of the season. Their fans will create an electric atmosphere and everyone is aware of just how difficult it is to visit Celtic. Last weekend, Ange Postecoglou's side has once again shown attacking qualities domestically, ranking as the highest-scoring team in the league with 39 goals.

Shakhtar travels to Celtic Park unbeaten in three matches, with a strong start in both the Ukrainian Premier League and Champions League. They were just 10 seconds shy of pulling off the upset Real Madrid two weeks ago, conceding the equalizer in the last minute of the game.

Mykhailo Mudryk is once again the player to watch. He scored three goals in his last three appearances for his club and we expect him to sign with a big club in the January transfer window. Shakhtar is sitting third in the standings with five points to their name, trailing second-placed RB Leipzig by just one point. They have everything to play for and they have the weapons to return home with the three points.
