Chelsea to Entertain Juventus in Massive Champions League Showdown!

Two giants of European football collide in the UEFA Champions League, in London on Tuesday. Who will feature and who will be triumphant?

Chelsea and unbeaten leaders, Juventus, battle for Group H supremacy on Tuesday evening, as the top two meet in West London.

While the Old Lady were victorious in Turin when the clubs last met, reigning champions, Chelsea, are just a point away from joining the visitors in the knockout stages.

Thomas Tuchel was without both of his main strikers, following injuries suffered on Champions League duty, but the German manager has been able to welcome back both Romelu Lukaku (ankle) and Timo Werner (thigh) to training recently.

While Werner was an unused substitute at Leicester on Saturday and could now start, Lukaku is unlikely to feature yet, as he plots a careful return to the first-team.

Several times a champion in this competition, Mateo Kovačić, has been side-lined since picking up a hamstring injury in training late last month, while wing-back, Marcos Alonso, only returned from an ankle injury at the weekend.

Mason Mount missed England’s recent internationals after undergoing dental surgery, but started in the Premier League and is expected to support either Werner, or Kai Havertz in attack.

Juventus, meanwhile, are hoping to have Paulo Dybala available for the trip to London, and the striker remains hopeful of featuring at some stage.

Welsh midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, is still out and captain, Giorgio Chiellini, is also a doubt because of an Achilles problem.

Max Allegri also has worries about Federico Bernardeschi, who was injured representing Italy, but Moise Kean is available and could feature up front, should Dybala miss out.

However, the scorer of the winner in the reverse fixture, Federico Chiesa, is a more likely option to join Álvaro Morata in attack for the Bianconeri.

Our prediction for this game is a 1-0 home victory for Chelsea, with the goal coming in the first half.
