Chelsea vs Juventus Predicted Lineup and Injury Updates

Juventus FC is set to welcome Chelsea FC in the Champions League group-stage clash tonight on Wednesday, September 29, at 10:00pm.Both teams are joint-top Group H as they had won their first bouts during the openers.

Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata had both scored to clinch a 3-0 win away to Malmo. However, in their last Serie A fixture, it was a bitter-sweet moment for the Bianconeri as Dybala and Morata were ruled out of the Wednesday night clash due to injuries.

Thomas Tuchel's side, on the other hand, picked up momentum in their opening bout with a 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg thanks to a powerful strike from Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea hopes to recover from a 1:0 loss in the EPL clash against Man City.

Tuchel have confirmed that Reece James twisted his ankle in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, hence the defender will be assessed to determine if he will be fit to play in Turin. Chelsea will also play without Kante and Mount.

Possible Lineup

Juventus: Perin, Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro, Chiesa, Locatelli, Bentancur, Bernardeschi, Moise Kean, Kulusevski

Chelsea: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, James, Mount, Havertz, Lukaku
