New double for Haaland, Milan sinks to Chelsea, PSG clings to Benfica

The Group H posters were eagerly awaited, each time between two teams tied in the standings. One between Benfica and PSG, both at six points. The other between Juventus and Maccabi Haifa, both without the slightest unity.

In the clash between Portuguese and French, it was the locals who started better but failed to materialize. After a superb streak from his magical attacking trio, Lionel Messi opened the scoring with a superb shot curled into the skylight (22nd). Trailing in a not really deserved way, Benfica managed to react before the break thanks to a goal from Danilo against his camp (41st). In the second half, and despite several clear chances on each side, the score did not move, giving Benfica a good point (1-1).

In the other meeting, Juventus, in great difficulty this season, provided the essentials by winning at a slow trot (3-1) against Maccabi Haifa thanks to the achievements ofAdrien Rabiot (35th and 83rd) and Dusan Vlahovic (47th). At the end of the match, the Turin public even began to worry after the reduction in the score of Dean David (75e).

In the standings, PSG and Benfica obviously remain in the lead with seven points while Juve find themselves at three, Maccabi still at zero.
