⭕ Match Preview

Prediction of Chelsea vs Juventus, List of Champions League matches on Wednesday morning will bring Chelsea against Juventus.
Chelsea head into this clash following a 1-1 draw in the Premier League against Burnley.
In that match, Chelsea had 70% possession and 25 shots on target with 4 of them on target.
The only player to score for Chelsea is Kai Havertz (33′). Burnley got 5 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Matěj Vydra (79′) scored the goal for Burnley.
Their recent results really illustrate the point that a lot of solidity has been shown by the Chelsea defence.
Chelsea have given the opposition quite a bit, resulting in the number of goals that have passed their goalkeeper over the last 6 matches by 2. We will find out if that trend will be maintained here or not.
Juventus will go into the game after a 1-0 Serie A win vs Fiorentina in their last match.
In that match, Juventus managed to control 51% possession and 13 shots on target with 3 on target.
The only player to score for Juventus is Juan Cuadrado (91′). At the other end, Fiorentina got 6 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target.
During their last half dozen clashes, Juventus have helped themselves with a tally of 9 goals. Juventus also managed to score goals in each of these matches. In that time, their defenders have seen 7 goals scored by their opponents.
The previous league match between the two sides was the Champions League day 2 match on 29/09/2021 when the final score was Juventus 1-0 Chelsea.
In that match, Juventus had 27% possession and 6 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. The scorer is Federico Chiesa (46′).
For their opponents, Chelsea got 16 shots on goal with 1 of them on target.
This match was led by Jesús Gil Manzano.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has no concerns about any fitness before this game with a fully healthy group ready to play.
Thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has no fitness issues to report before this game.
Over the years Leonardo Bonucci has established himself as one of Juve's main defenders.
The 190cm centre-back, who can also play at right-back, was born in Viterbo on 1 May 1987 and started his senior career at Inter.
However, he made no more than one league appearance for the Nerrazzurri between 2005 and 2009.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Treviso and Pisa, he joined Bari in 2009 and he scored one goal in 38 league games for the club.
Juventus signed him in July 2010 for a fee of €15.5 million. Leonardo Bonucci won his fifth Scudetto with Juve in the 2015/2016 season and he played in the 2014/2015 Champions League final against Barcelona.
However, the Bianconeri were beaten by Barca in the title race.
Bonucci made his debut in Italy on 3 March 2010 and two years later he participated in the Euro 2012 final against Spain.
The Azzurri were thrashed by Vicente del Bosque's side 4-0 in a clash at the Olympic Stadium.
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League.
Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it must be noted that they were more than lucky to beat Bayern Munich in the title race.
Chelsea have played at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners' Cups and the UEFA Europa League.
Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title race.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues struggled hard the following season, as Jose Mourinho's second spell with the club ended, and Antoine Conte replaced him to take over the helm for the 2016/2017 season.
Our feeling is that Chelsea can score at least one goal when they face Juventus, which will not be easy to score.
Having said that, we anticipate a 2-0 win for Chelsea at the end of the game.

Predicted Score Chelsea vs Juventus: 2-0
