Spanish Referee Gil Manzano has been appointed to take charge of the UCL game between Chelsea and Juventus this wednesday. Both teams play a defensive style of football and this might bring about multiple yellow cards.

Chelsea lost their last EPL game, it was against Manchester City and it ended 1-0 in favour of 'the Cityzens'.Juventus won their game against Sampdoria yesterday despite the fact that Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata got injured.

Jesus Gil Manzano's stats this season shows that the referree has the habit of issuing yellow cards. This Spanish referee has issued over 26 yellow cards in his last 6 appearances.

In the last 4 laliga matches he officiated, Gil Manzano has issued over 23 cards. This stats might not favour Chelsea on wednesday because their defenders especially Antonio Rudiger always get yellow card.

Chelsea will be hoping to bounce back after losing against Manchester City, they will like to feast on 'the Old Ladies' but their poor conduct could trigger Gil Manzano's anger.

Chelsea was fined against Liverpool because of the poor conduct of their players during the game. Anthony Taylor issued a straight red card to Reece James and that nearly caused a fight on the pitch.

Chelsea have enough players who can help them to get a win against Juventus without multiple yellow cards. The 3-4-3 formation will also be a pattern other than the 3-5-2 blueprint.

Thomas Tuchel has not said anything about Mason Mount's injury but the presence of Ruben Loftus-cheek can help matters.

Juventus on their own still have Kulusevski and Federicio Chiesa, they are top players who can produce a goal in the absence of Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata.
