Juventus vs Chelsea Preview:
In November the 20th, 2012 Juventus welcomes Chelsea at the Juventus Stadium in Torino. Blues are hoping to end their poor domestic form and rehabilitate in Turin.
Roberto Di Matteo’s team leads Group E but they are just a point ahead of the Bianconeri. Tuesday night’s game is one of the most important in the final standings.
There are two rounds and six points to play for in the group E. Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk and Juventus are fighting for the top two positions. Chelsea currently stands on the top of the group due to goal difference with seven points. Shakhtar also has seven as well. Juventus has six points. Shakhtar travels to Denmark for three points with FC Nordsjaelland. Denmark team is out of contention even for the third place which allows qualifying to the Europa League.
Juventus are the leaders in the Serie A. They have three wins in their last six home games. Chelsea has a poor form. They are standing on the third position in the EPL. They have three wins in their last six away games. The first game between these two teams ended in a 2-2 draw at the Stamford Bridge.
Juventus played a 0-0 draw with Lazio at the weekend. But they had very few injury concerns. Mirko Vucinic has been absent in the defeat to Inter. Paolo De Cegile is still regaining fitness. Andrea Pirlo will return after suspension. So Paul Pogba will be dropped to the bench. Sebastian Giovinco also could miss out the game. Alessandro Matri and Nicklas Bendtner played in the last game. Simone Pepe has returned after his injury.
Roberto Di Matteo probably will put Fernando Torres on the bench. His place is under threat, so Daniel Sturridge could get his chance. Chelsea will play without John Terry and Frank Lampard. Ashley Cole could return after the game with West Brom. Oscar, Juan Mata, Branislav Ivanovic and Ramires all were on the bench in the loss on Saturday. But they should return to the starting line-up.
