The Champions of Europe Chelsea came up yesterday against Juventus in Turin, in a champions league group stage match, where the Old Lady as they call them came out on top against Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea side.Chelsea are thought to be among the favourites for this year's champions league and are seen as favourites to win their group.
However, it was the Italians who utilized their chance on goal through the Euro 20 winner Federico Chiessa, who scored the only goal of the match to give Juve a deserved win.The Blues were without midfielders Mason Mount, Ng'olo Kante and defender Reece James who are among the most important players for Thomas Tuchel.
Giorgio Chiellini a Euro 20 winner with Italy and captain for both club and country, who came for Rodrigo Bentacur on in the 82nd minute to see the game out, had early prophesied something that came to pass in the game while speaking to Italian media Tuttosport through The Express.
According to him he said " We are facing a wounded team, no need to be afraid.Chelsea game is the easiest game we will play in recent weeks." It seemed they had a game plan and mastered a way to stop Chelsea for him to have made such a huge statement. It worked for them and his prophesy came to pass, as Chelsea we're without Kante, mount and James who are all crucial figures for Tuchel's side.
