Juventus will clash heads with Chelsea at the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night as both sides look to fight tooth and nail in search of the three points. The Turin giants managed to secure a hard-fought 3-2 win over Sampdoria last weekend. In contrast, the Blues suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City earlier this month which has hampered their momentum ahead of this midweek clash.

Talking Tactics

Massimiliano Allegri will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make some changes to his team for this highly anticipated home game in Europe. The Juve boss will ask his players to gain some control in midfield and orchestrate enough chances to win this game.

Thomas Tuchel will stick with his favoured 3-4-2-1 formation and could be inclined to make a few tweaks to his starting XI in midweek. The German manager will instruct his players to respect the opposition and be solid at the back so that they can hurt the home side on the counter.

Team News

Juventus

Both Alvaro Morata and Paolo Dybala got injured last weekend and are unlikely to be ready for this contest. Otherwise, Allegri has no fresh injury concerns to cope with ahead of this Wednesday night showdown at Turin.

Juventus Predicted XI

Perin; Danilo, Chiellini, Bonucci, Sandro; Bentancur, Locatelli, Ramsey; Chiesa, Kean, Kulusevski

Chelsea 

Reece James picked up an ankle injury in the loss to Man City, so he won’t feature in this game. Both Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount are major doubts for this clash as well. Hence, Tuchel will have no choice but to make some changes in midweek.

Chelsea Predicted XI

Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Saul, Jorginho, Alonso; Havertz, Lukaku, Werner

Key Men

Juventus

The defensive performance of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci could very well determine the outcome of this contest. The Italian centre-halves would need to be at the top of their game if they are to stop Romelu Lukaku from scoring during the 90 minutes.

Moise Kean and Federico Chiesa will be Allegri’s best source for goals in the final third, so we can expect them to play a key role in this match.

Chelsea

Lukaku will be Chelsea’s main man up top. The Belgian striker failed to register a goal last weekend, so he will be eager to get his name on the scoresheet and help his team pick up maximum points on the road. Both Saul Niguez and Jorginho will be responsible for dominating the midfield battle so that the Blues can establish their superiority over the Italian outfit in this game.
