If the away side can come to Italy and take all three points, they will guarantee a place in the knockout stages, but know they must be at their best to come out on top in this one.
Chelsea do not come into this game in the best of form either as they went down at West Bromwich Albion over the weekend. Roberto Di Matteo will be feeling the pressure at the helm of the side and a positive result is what is needed here. Those wishing to back the away win can get 7/2.
Di Matteo indicated on the weekend that he is looking to ring the changes in the side, which could spell the end of Fernando Torres’ run in the team, with the former Liverpool man struggling to find the form of old as Abramovich eyes a big January signing.
The European Champions know that a defeat could leave their fate out of their own hands for the final match of the group stages. It is defensively that Di Matteo’s men have struggled so far and he will be desperate to keep a clean sheet in this one.
As for Juventus, this is a must win for them as they currently lie in third place in the Group E table, and they have plenty of confidence in their camp right now as they currently sit on the top of Serie A, so their price of 10/11 could attract plenty of attention.
The side from Turin have lost just one game in all competitions this campaign and have players with the experience and knowhow in these big matches.
The Italian Champions are looking to show what a top outfit they are at the moment and qualification for the knockout stages of Europe’s elite club competition is a must. A win would leave them in a great position to do this, but they know how tough it is going to be against the current holders of the tournament.
The Turin giants are in a superb run of form as they sit top of the Serie A table in Italy, with Fabio Quagliarella looking particularly dangerous as he links up with the industrious Andrea Pirlo in midfield.
It all makes for a superb encounter that gets underway from 7.45PM.
