UEFA Champions League

UCL: Juve vs Chelsea, And 2 Other Matches Where We Might See An Upset Today

Action continues today in the UEFA Champions League with the second batches of matches set to go down. Big teams like Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Barca, Manchester United and Juventus are all in action.

Yesterday, we saw some upsets as Sheriff Tiraspol stunned Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, and Belgian side Club Brugge picked up a win against RB Leipzig to open up Group A.

Today's fixtures are mouthwatering, but here are three centres where we might also see upsets.

Juventus vs Chelsea

Defending champions Chelsea will travel to Turin to play Juventus. Chelsea is the favourites in this game based on current form and the odds favour them to win. However, this match might just be the spark Juve needs to kindle their season.

The Old Ladies have struggled for form, but that does not take away their pedigree as a power-house in Europe. Juve also has a good record playing at home.

Chelsea struggled over the weekend and will be without Reece James, Mason Mount and Ngolo Kante, and this might be a plus for Juventus.

Manchester United vs Villarreal

A repeat of last seasons Europa League final. The Yellow Submarines will be looking to have another victory over the Red Devils today at Old Trafford.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer is under immense pressure at the moment after having just 5 wins from his last 11 games. United lost their opening fixture to Young Boys and will be desperate for a win today.

Manchester United are without three of their back four - Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw & Aaron Wan-Bissaka are all ruled out and Villarreal who are an attacking side can capitalize on this.

Benfica vs Barcelona

Barca might have won 3-0 over the weekend, but that doesn't hide the fact that there are a lot of lapses in the Catalan side. Playing in Portugal is another big test for Ronald Koeman.

Which of these matches will produce the upsets for Wednesday?
