Chelsea was defeated by Juventus in their second group stage match of the UEFA champions League this season. The English team was the winner of the competition last season after defeating Manchester city by a lone goal in Portugal.
The old lady's scored Chelsea just 11 seconds into the second half of the game, Federico Chiesa was able to beat Antonio Rudiger with pace to slot in the ball into the net with his left foot. The blues attacked the Italian team, but they were strong enough to withstand the pressure mounted on them.
Chelsea tried all they could to Equalise the goal, but all efforts proved abortive. The only chance which would have resulted to a goal was not counted by the center referee. Juventus defender used his hands to change the direction of a ball inside the 18 yard box, but it's not awarded to Chelsea as penalty.
The video assistant referee called the attention of the center referee, but after a lengthy discussion, the Penalty was not given. The VAR decision will affect the performance of the team in subsequent matches because of the following reasons.
1. Goal Aggregate
Chelsea is in a very tight group, Malmö is the only team that you can beat with enough goal margin in the group. Conceding a goal without scoring will affect the team because it might be needed to judge their performances if every tarries.
2. Demoralised The Players
The players will be finding it difficult to attack because any of such opportunities won't be given to them.
Teams usually get goals through such means, and if the advantage is not awarded to the attacking team, the players will look frustrated throughout the whole match.
