Team News

  • Andrea Pirlo returns to the Juve starting XI after sitting out Saturday's draw with Lazio due to suspension.
  • Vucinic is back and available, and he is set to partner Quagliarella up front after the Italian recently scored a hat-trick against Pescara as well as netting at Stamford Bridge in these sides' last meeting.
  • De Ceglie misses out through injury once again.
  • Roberto Di Matteo will recall the big names he dropped for the loss at West Brom at the weekend in the hope that their return can provide a boost to the team.
  • Terry and Lampard remain out, while Ashley Cole should return from injury.
  • Oscar and Mata will come in for Moses and Sturridge.

Prediction

  • Juventus were frustrated in being held to a goalless draw at home to Lazio at the weekend, and for the first time in a while their form looks somewhat mixed, having lost to Inter recently but then scored 10 goals in 2 wins before the Lazio stalemate.
  • Chelsea lost at West Brom at the weekend, and now their Champions League win over Shakhtar a fortnight ago is their only win in normal time in their last 7 matches. After a rampant start to the season, Chelsea look like they may be beginning to stutter.
  • Group D is in the balance with only two games left for each side, and Juventus have to avoid defeat or risk being eliminated. There is much less pressure on this game for Chelsea, who can still qualify by beating Nordsjaelland at home whatever the result here, and Juventus' need for the win could drive them on to victory.

  • Great performence Juve! Finally luck exhaust. Welcome in Europa League! And Di Matteo fired - most of people says, that's only excuse for Abramowicz, but Supercup, Communnity Shield, poor performence in CL... Only Premier League was good for Chelsea, so it's not big suprise.

  • terrible decision by Cech

  • what about Lichsteiner post ?

  • woahhh just came across again and find out buffon recorded no One to One save ? what did he saved against hazard then ? :S

  • rape is legal in italy

  • So that UCL win was a fluke !!

  • finally both our strikers had over 70% pass accuracy! thats key in the final third, thanks god..And now we have giovinco and Isla fresh for Milan. Perfect match today

  • you should stop underestimating certain team, may7even.

  • Chelsea will win this one. it won't be even close

  • Draw. Don't juve have a crazy record of drawing loads of European games recently? 1-1

  • Another great game. Fancy Chelsea to go through.

  • Tricky affair that could go either way. Here is hoping Juve find a way to win. Go Juve!

  • Don't see Chelsea getting a result in Turin. Pressure will begin to mount on RDM

  • Juventus will win 1-0 ;)

  • Why are you all certain about Juve winning this? Don't be fooled, Chelsea will take at least a draw

  • juventus 3 0 chelsea

  • Both teams have forwards that are not able to score. The match will be decided, in a way or in another, by midfielders.

  • 3+

  • Juventus have been playing much better football since losing to Inter, even their last draw which ended in a draw they played great football, so I am expecting Juventus to win this one

  • Juve have to win,,, hope so

  • mark my words chelsea will win this one
