Uefa has announced that Manzano will be the referee for Juventus's game against Chelsea in the Champions League that will take place on Wednesday in Turin. These are the two reasons why Chelsea fans should be afraid after the announcement.
1. He has issued a lot of yellow cards just in 4 games: he issued 23 yellow cards and that is a lot. The fans should be worried because he might issue up to 10 yellow cards in that game. After all, it will surely be an intense game. After all, both teams are the best in their respective leagues. Chelsea will attack more in the game and they are looking forward to getting their second win in the Champions League.
2. He has given Messi a red card before: Looking at this, he is surely a strict referee who is well known in Spanish La Liga. He was the referee for the 0-0 draw between Real Madrid and Villarreal.The unexpected might happen, and he might give a very important player a red card. Hard tackles will not be tolerated. The two clubs should understand that the referee is not coming from their country, and his style of refereeing might be different.
Chelsea will be coming back from a disappointing defeat at the hands of Manchester City, but the club has few injuries and they don't need to worry. Juventus, on the other hand, will be ready for the game after they beat Sampdoria in the seria A. Although two of their most important players will miss the game, Moise Kean will be a bigger threat to Chelsea, but Tuchel is going to start his three centre backs, which will make it difficult for the striker.
Allegri will start Bonucci, Chiellini, and Chelsea target De ligt, but will they be able to start Lukaku? We have seen Lukaku's performance against Juventus, but without Mount and Reece James, it will be difficult for crosses to come in for the striker.
