Chelsea vs Juventus: Date, Venue, Predicted Lineup, Head-to-Head, And Score Prediction

Current Champions League winners Chelsea would lock horns with Seria A giants Juventus in the Champions League group stage fixture on Wednesday. Both teams would be keen on securing a victory in the encounter to increase their chances of qualifying for the next round.

Thomas Tuchel will turn his focus to the Italian team after losing to Manchester City in the Premier League. The Chelsea manager would be hoping to bounce back from the 1:0 defeat to Manchester City over the weekend. Both Juventus and Chelsea would face off in the UCL and below are some important things to note about the exciting fixture which would take place on the 29th of September.

Date and Venue

The highly anticipated match would take place in Juventus stadium Allianz Stadium. The clash would be Chelsea's second UCL game of the season. The match would kick off on the 29th of September.


Predicted Line-ups

Thomas Tuchel may likely use a 3:4:2:1 formation. This lineup is what Thomas Tuchel has used in most of his games this season. The Chelsea head coach formation against Manchester City last week didn't work out as he used a 3:5:2, hence, he is expected to stick to his usual pattern which is a 3:4:2:1 formation.

Lukaku would likely play alongside Kai Havertz and Ziyech upfront. In the midfield area, Thomas Tuchel may lineup Alonso, Kovacic, Kante, and Azpilicueta.

The back three defenders may likely comprise Rudiger, Thiago Silva, and Christensen as all 3 players have been impressive this season.


Head-to-Head

The two teams have locked horns with each other 4 times in the Champions League. Chelsea has won 1, Juventus have won 1, and both teams have had 2 draws.


Score Prediction

After considering the facts available Thomas Tuchel's work on this Chelsea team should not be underrated. The Chelsea manager has lost only 1 match this season as his defensive tactics have been very important to Chelsea's success this season.

My predicted scoreline for the match is a comfortable victory for the Chelsea team which is: Chelsea 3-0 Juventus.
