Chelsea might be UEFA Champions League holders although it looks reasonably likely that Thomas Tuchel’s side will reach the last sixteen stage as runners-up. This means the Blues would line up against one of the group winners, although a victory against Juventus would change the complexion of things.

Right now, the London side are three points behind Juve following their 1-0 defeat in Turin with Federico Chiesa scoring the winning goal of a tight affair. Max Allegri is back at the helm of the Bianconeri and we should therefore expect a tactical game of chess between him and Tuchel once again.

While Chelsea are favourites and might be capable of edging the clash, we are leaning towards Under 2.5 Goals considering that only one goal was scored in the reverse fixture. Allegri knows that a clean sheet will keep Juve in the box seat and we might see Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci bring all their experience to the back line.

We know that the home side have one of the best defences in Europe and this clash could once again be decided by a single goal, with no quarter likely to be given and we might see a few tactical yellow cards along the way.
