Worrying result for Juventus at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea showed exactly why they are the European Champions with an astonishing performance, beating Juventus 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.

The Old Lady were on the back foot from kick-off, with the Blues showing blistering pace going forwards as well as in pressing they didn’t let up for the whole game.

Defender Chalobah opened the score with a shot that went past Wojciech Szczesny in the 25th minute after centre back Toni Rudiger set him up from a Hakim Ziyech corner. A VAR check dismissed calls for handball from Rudiger when replays showed the ball hit his hand in front of his chest.

Reece James added a second five minutes before the hour mark with a cleanly struck volley. Callum Hudson-Odoi added a third goal in the 58th minute after some neat footwork from Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the build-up. Timo Werner closed the game out with virtually the last play of the game.

Szczesny saved Juventus from utter humiliation with a series of fine stops throughout the full 90 minutes. The only good chance for Juve has opened for Morata in the first half, but his shot was cleared inches from the goalline by Silva.

Juventus had already qualified for the knockout stage but the result dropped them to second place in the group, with Chelsea having same amount of points- 12, but with worse goal difference in head-to-head matches between both teams. In the last game Juve is facing Malmö. A wrong step for Chelsea in Saint Petersburg could open the top place for the Old Lady.
