Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Juventus vs Chelsea from the Allianz Stadium in the second round of fixtures in this year’s Champions League group stage.
Chelsea travel away to Turin tonight to take on a struggling Juventus side who currently sit tenth in Serie A after six games, having conceded ten goals.
The Blues are currently third in the Premier League table after six games with four wins, a draw and just one defeat, which came in their 1-0 loss to Man City at the weekend.
Both sides got off to winning starts in their Champions League campaigns, with Juve thrashing Malmo 3-0 in Sweden and Chelsea narrowly beating Zenit 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
They’ve only ever played each other four times in the Champions League, with each side winning once and drawing twice. The last match was in 2012, with the Italian side winning 3-0.
The current European champions will be without N’Golo Kante, who has tested positive for coronavirus, while Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Reece James all miss out through injury.
Ex-Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata will miss out on the chance to show his old club what they’re missing as he also misses out through injury, with Argentine forward Paulo Dybala also unavailable.
This is a true heavyweight European clash, with the home side having a real point to prove following the sale of their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and the away side hoping to defend their title.
