Maccabi Haifa's stunning 0-2 win over Juventus earlier this season in the Champions League sent shockwaves all over Europe, and apparently also traumatized some Bianconeri fans.

Following the failed season in all competitions and points deducted, Juventus will probably play in the Conference League next season, and if Maccabi Haifa does not qualify for the Champions League or Europa League, it may meet the Italian team again.
Maccabi Tel Aviv, Hapoel Be'er Sheva and Beitar Jerusalem may also meet the Torino team if they qualify for the next stage, but at this point in time Juventus fans are mostly afraid of the Israeli champions. They probably haven't heard about Barak Bahar's departure or about Omar Atzili's impending move to the Emirates.
"We will lose to them in the final," one fan wrote on Twitter. He is probably one of the most optimistic, because his friend wrote, "I really hope we avoid Maccabi Haifa," and another fan wrote: "Just not them again." Other fans actually want to take the opportunity to settle an account. "It's revenge time," one wrote.
