Champions League Holders Chelsea welcomed Juventus to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening for a mouthwatering encounter in an epic champions league clash, Chelsea look to win the game and secure their spot in the champions league round of 16.
It became a bright start for Chelsea as Trevoh Chalobah opened the scoring, Chelsea were enjoying total dominance but it took a brilliant goalline clearance from Thiago Silva to prevent Juventus from equalising just three minutes later.1-0 to the blues at half-time.
Reece James was proving a constant threat to Alex Sandro and was soon celebrating Chelsea’s second goal of the night, his fifth of the campaign. It arrived in similar fashion to that which had brought such an impressive save from Szczesny in the first half, though on this occasion there was no answer to the 21-year-old’s fine control and superb finish.
Two soon finally became three as Hudson-Odoi scored from a beautifully worked ball from Loftus Cheeks as Chelsea were on fire and ruthless, Juventus players were left confused to see the goals flowing at Stamford Bridge. Substitute Timo Werner made it 4-0 in 90th minute to complete an amazing win for the home side and taking them top of their Champions League Group, it was an entertaining one for Chelsea fans as they all smiled home giving them a superb boost into their match up against Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
The superb victory puts Chelsea in pole position to reach the last 16 as group winners, meaning a potentially easier draw, but it came at a cost ahead of Sunday’s Premier League meeting with Manchester United.
The blues lost N’Golo Kante to a knee injury in the first half, while Ben Chilwell was also forced off with a knee problem following a coming together with Adrien Rabiot in the second half of the game.
With Chelsea’s recent performances, they are now looking superb as one the best club in the world right now.
