McKennie Juventus Benfica Champions League goal
U.S. men's national team star Weston McKennie scored for Juventus on Tuesday but was unable to lift his side to a much-needed result against Benfica.
  • McKennie scores second UCL goal
  • Unable to save Juve from defeat
  • Now in danger of finishing last in group

WHAT HAPPENED? Down 4-2 to Benfica in the 79th minute with his side's Champions League future on the line, McKennie pounced on a loose ball in the box after several blocked shots. He was able to fire home to make it 4-3, but it was not enough to prevent his side's elimination.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: With the 4-3 defeat, Juve can finish no higher than third in their Champions League group. Third would be good enough for a Europa League spot, but even that is at risk for the Serie A side, as Maccabi Haifa would leapfrog them if they achieve a better result against Benfica than Juve do against PSG.
