Juve Vs Che: 5 Players Expected To Miss The UCL Clash For Both Teams On Wednesday.

Defending champions Chelsea will face Italian giants Juventus in Turin on Wednesday, as both teams will be looking to stamp a strong authority on group F.

As it stands, Massimiliano Allegri's team are currently top of the group standings courtesy of a plus 3 goal difference.

A win for Chelsea could see them overtake Juventus on the log, while the reserve could see the Italian giants open a huge gap in group F.

The game which is expected to go down on Wednesday will no doubt be a tough encounter for the two teams, but both clubs could go into the game with notable absentees.

I will thus be going through 5 five players who will not take part in the encounter on Wednesday.

The Chelsea defender picked up a nasty ankle injury against Manchester City over the weekend, and is expected to miss the game.

Paulo Dybala

The Juventus captain will miss out the clash with Chelsea, after picking up a muscle injury in their 3-2 win against Sampdoria.

Another player who will miss the game against Chelsea as confirmed by Allegri in a press conference is Spanish striker Morata.
