UEFA Champions League

2 Wrong Decisions Chelsea's Coach Made In Today's Match That Contributed to His Defeat

The UEFA Champions League continues today as Juventus hosted Chelsea at the Turin stadium in the second game of the Group H. Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea suffered a back-to-back defeat for the first time since he became Chelsea manager. Chelsea recorded their first Champions League defeat against Juventus after the Italian narrowly defeated the Blues 1-0 in Italy.


Federico Chiesa's 46th minute goal was all that made the difference for the host as they climb on top of Group H with 6 points in 2 matches.

The match wouldn't have gone the way it went if Thomas Tuchel didn't make two wrong choices in today's match. Thomas Tuchel made two wrong decisions that contributed to his embarrassing defeat at the Turin Stadium.

1. Starting Hakim Ziyech:

In fhe absence of Mason Mount, Thomas Tuchel opted to start with Hakim Ziyech instead of Timo Werner, a decision that came as surprise. The decision to start Hakim Ziyech proved to be a wrong one as the winger struggled to make an impact for the team.

Hakim Ziyech was aggressive and gave away reckless fouls that could have cost Chelsea even more.


2. Removing Cesar Cesar Azpilicueta:

Thomas Tuchel made another wrong decision by replacing Cesar Cesar Azpilicueta for Trevor Chalobah when the Chelsea needed an equalizer. Cesar Cesar Azpilicueta has been the only player that has a good linkup with Romelu Lukaku and in his absence the Belgian struggled to impact the game.

Conclusion:

Thomas Tuchel is still the man to take Chelsea to greater heights but his mistakes cost Chelsea the win. Chelsea has now suffered a back-to-back loss for the first time under Thomas Tuchel and the blues needs to bounce back quickly when they face Southampton this weekend
