Juventus vs Chelsea
UEFA Champions League,
Date: Wednesday, 29 September 2021
Kick-off 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
Chelsea will travel to Italy for their UEFA Champions League match against Juventus on September 30th. The match will be held at the Juventus Stadium in Turin. The Blues will be motivated to overcome all of their prior troubles after a strong start to the season. Juventus, on the other hand, has had its fair share of issues this season, having endured a rollercoaster ride.
Much will be on the line, as the Italian giants continue to struggle with Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence. The Portuguese legend has returned to Manchester United this summer, and Juventus has replaced him with Moise Kean, who showed flashes of brilliance last season when he scored 13 goals for Paris Saint-Germain.
Juventus vs Chelsea Head to head
It’s been nine years since these two giants last played each other and back then they also battled it out in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
Juventus took four points from two games against Chelsea on the occasion (a 2-2 draw on the road and a 3-0 win at home).
We’ve seen at least three goals in each of the last three head to head outings between the two outfits.
Juventus vs Chelsea Prediction
Both managers have major injury concerns heading into a match that, along with the reverse at Stamford Bridge, will most certainly determine who finishes first in Group H.
Chelsea’s great squad depth may come to the fore, but you get the feeling a draw would be a good result for Tuchel’s side.
