Argentine international Angel Di Maria was the star of the show as his Juventus side beat Maccabi Haifa 3-1 at home to register their first Champions League win of the season. He won the best player at the end of the game as revealed by organisers UEFA.
Juventus star Di Maria and his Argentina side are one of the favourites to win the World Cup 2022 tournament. The other top three favourites for the World Cup 2022 tournament are defending champions France and Brazil.
Di Maria is in his first season at Juventus after the Italian Serie A outfit sealed a free transfer move for him this summer. The Argentine left PSG at the end of last season following the expiration of his contract at the Parc des Princes. He’s one of the major free transfer signings at Juventus this summer alongside Frenchman Paul Pogba.
Angel Di Maria and Juventus are in Group G of this season’s Champions League. Apart from the Old Lady, the other teams in the group are PSG, Maccabi Haifa and Benfica. Juventus are in a precarious position in their quest to qualify for the round of 16. Only the top two teams from the group will secure spots in the last 16. Juventus are in third spot in the group with three points from three games. The Old Lady are four points off the duo of PSG and Benfica in the top two positions in the group ahead of the final three matches. The Italians could be in the Europa League by the end of the group stage rather than in the Champions League.
