Juventus vs. Chelsea team news
Juventus have injury problems with Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala excluded. Italy’s experienced captain Giorgio Chiellini was spared last week in preparation for the game against Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea, meanwhile, will do without N’Golo Kante after the Frenchman tested positive for Covid-19. Mason Mount, Reece James and Christian Pulisic are also unavailable for the game due to injuries.
Prediction of Juventus against Chelsea
Both coaches have significant injury problems if there is a collision which – along with the setback at Stamford Bridge – will likely decide who will be at the top of Group H.
Chelsea’s incredible squad depth could come to the fore, but you can feel that a draw wouldn’t be a bad result for Tuchel’s men.
