Here is all you need to know about the Champions League 2022/23 group games on October 25.

Benfica vs Juventus

Juventus visits Benfica with the challenge of saving its Champions League campaign for the season.

The Bianconeri have accumulated just three points off their four games and sit in the third place in Group H. It needs to win both its matches2, against Benfica and PSG, and hope one of the top two loses both its games.

Even Maccabi Haifa has three points and will make a contention for a Europa League spot. Juventus, placed third only because of a superior goal difference, simply cannot slip up.

Benfica has impressed with its form in the Champions League and has drawn 1-1 against PSG twice. A win on Tuesday will take the team through to the Last 16.

The previous meeting in the group went Benfica’s way as it beat Juventus 2-1 at the Allianz Stadium.

With Real Madrid having sealed their spot for the knockouts, there is all to play for, for Shakhtar Donetsk and RB Leipzig, to seal the second spot.

Celtic has lost seven consecutive home games in the group stage, scoring only once in that stint, as it prepares to host Shakhtar.

If Leipzig loses to Real Madrid, and Shakhtar beats Celtic, the Donetsk-based team will move into the 2nd place. The last matchday then, between RB Leipzig and Shakhtar will become a potential knockout match.

In the earlier group stage meeting between Celtic and Shakhtar ended in a 1-1 draw. That was the only point Celtic has won in the Champions League this year.
