Juventus are currently having a difficult time of things, with the team having managed to land just two points from their opening four matches. Max Allegri might be back at the helm in a bid to regain the Scudetto that was lost to Internazionale last season, although a 2-2 draw against Udinese was followed by defeats against Empoli and Napoli.

It’s too simplistic to say that the Turin side are missing Cristiano Ronaldo considering that they won nothing with the Portuguese forward last term, although a 1-1 draw against Milan suggests that Juve have turned a corner and they did also open their Champions League account with a 3-0 win in Malmo.

Chelsea arrive in Italy as betting favourites although they were only just able to get over the line when beating Zenit Saint Petersburg, with the Blues having made a formidable start to their domestic campaign where the London side have swept all before them and also engineered a point at Anfield with ten men.

Nevertheless, this isn’t a straightforward fixture and a point from this clash would keep them moving in the right direction, with Thomas Tuchel likely to operate from a safety-first basis when it comes to this encounter.
