The second period of Max Allegri is the worst portrait of Juventus in the history of the Champions League, with only three points in six matches!
Three points from six Champions League group stage matches, clearly a disgrace to any Juventus fan.
One group with Paris Saint-Germain, Benfica and Maccabi Haifa, Bianconeri really battered like a mediocre team, struggling to serve their rivals in order to qualify for the knockout round.
After opening their first two games with defeats to PSG and Benfica, Juve picked up their first UCL win of the season in matchday 3 against Haifa. However, the awakening only lasted for a moment.
In the second meeting with Haifa, the Old Lady was beaten 2-0.
Instead of taking revenge with Benfica and PSG in the second match, Massimiliano Allegri’s men lost again, 4-3 and 2-1 respectively.
Juventus actually had a big dream to end the Champions League curse by winning this season, in fact they couldn’t do much by winning only one of their six group stage matches.
Lucky Bianconerithey can still secure the Europa League play-offs even though their points tally with Haifa is actually the same — Allegri’s squad qualify for the Europa League on goal difference.
History records, this is as bad as Juventus’ performance in any edition of the Champions League. With only three of the potential 18 points, it is the lowest point in Juventus history in Europe’s top-flight competition.
In other words, Allegri’s second spell at Juventus brought the club to their lowest point in the UCL after the tactician’s first season successfully led the team to become runner-up 2015/15 and 2016/17 editions.
