UCL PREVIEW: CHELSEA VS JUVENTUS
Chelsea are unbeaten in a competitive match against Juventus. At first sight, that sends shivers into the Juve fans, or anyone wishing for a Juventus win tonight. The Blues knocked out Juve 3-2 on aggregate at the second round of the same competition in 2009. Further to that, Juventus holds a dismal record of only 2 wins on English soil (against Villa 82-83 and Man United 96-97). With that, all the Chelsea fans could be forgiven for harboring dreams of a routine win against their Italian counterparts. Without context, that could be misleading.
Juventus are on a 42 match unbeaten run in Seria A, and one could argue that this is no ordinary Juventus team. Granted they are nowhere near the all conquering Juventus team of the mid-90s; the likes of Zidane, Davids, Del Piero and Antonio Conte.
