But UEFA revealed that the works being carried out at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz have made the goal line technology dysfunctional.
In a statement they said: “Prior to the UEFA Champions League match between SL Benfica and Juventus, the local club, without the knowledge of UEFA and UEFA’s goal line technology provider, commissioned works on the Estadio do SL Benfica, which made the installed goal line technology system dysfunctional.
“Unfortunately it will not be possible to replace and install a new system in time for the match and therefore the match will take place without the use of goal line technology as per UEFA Champions League regulations.” .
Benfica enters the game in second place with eight points after four matches, tied with PSG. Meanwhile, Juventus need a win to keep their hopes of reaching the round of 16 alive.
