Chelsea will take revenge for September’s 1-0 defeat in Turin when they host Juventus on Tuesday night when the group stage of the Champions League continues.
The Blues can go even on points with Bianconeri at the top of Group H with a win, and will take the top spot if they win by a margin of two goals or more. Less and less and they would stay second because their guests have the advantage head-to-head and goal difference as it seems.
Juventus will defeat the top spot in the group with their own win.
A two-goal victory may need to be the task for Thomas Tuchel’s team, as Juve host the boys in Malmö on the last match day in December, while Chelsea are facing a winter trip to Russia to face Zenit.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Kai Havertz is unsure of a problem with the hamstring that forced him away to Leicester and he missed training on Monday. At the same time, Romelu Lukaku was involved after undergoing a medical examination after his dismissal with an ankle injury, although it remains to be seen if he is fit enough to start.
Although Timo Werner is ready to return to action, midfielder Mateo Kovacic remains sidelined with his own hoarding problem.

Paulo Dybala was hesitant about this one with a calf injury, but he will probably play some role after being photographed in a good mood during training.
However, Juventus boss Max Allegri has problems elsewhere – especially at the back. Defenders Danilo, Giorgio Chiellini and Mattia De Sciglio are all out, as is striker Federico Bernardeschi. Former Arsenal man Aaron Ramsey has been left out of the squad after doubts.

Despite how often these two European giants have qualified for the Champions League, they have only met five times so far.
While Juventus triumphed in the reverse match already in September thanks to Federico Chiesa’s fine finish, the record is head-to-head nicely balanced; Chelsea ended a 16-game tie 3-2 overall in 2009, while Oscar scored a fantastic goal for the then (and now) holders in a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in 2012. However, Juve beat Chelsea 3-0 in Turin that season when the champions left the group stage.
Chelsea probably need a victory with two goals or more to have a chance to win the group considering what is to come.
But against a team from Juventus that has so far looked unstoppable in Europe, it looks like an uphill climb.
Goals will be scored at both ends and Chelsea will technically get their revenge, but it is a result that may not be enough to take first place in the long run.
Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Juventus
