Defending champions Chelsea will play host to Juventus midweek in their next UEFA Champions League match at Stamford Bridge. Having already qualified for the knockout stage of the tournament, the Old Lady will look to wrap up the group stage on top. The home side, on the other hand, will look to confirm their berth in the last 16 by winning this game or playing out a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last nine games (all competitions) and last weekend they further reinforced their credentials by defeating Leicester 3-0.
The Blues’ last defeat came at the hands of Juve during the reverse fixture of this game in Turin. The UCL match between Chelsea and Juventus is slated to begin at 01:30 am (IST).
