Juventus vs Chelsea latest odds
Having won seven of their last eight Champions League matches on home turf, Juventus are available at 31/10 (4.10) with bet365 to move three points clear at the top by coming out on top.
Thomas Tuchel’s reigning champions kicked their title defence off with a narrow 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg and Chelsea are 9/10 (1.90) favourites to build on that with a big win in Italy.
Two of the last three meetings between this duo have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
Juventus vs Chelsea team news
Alvaro Morata came off injured in Sunday’s win over Sampdoria and will miss out on facing his former club, while Paulo Dybala, Kaio Jorge and Arthur are also definitely ruled out.
Reece James, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic are missing due to injury, while N’Golo Kante has been ruled out after testing positive for coronavirus.
Juventus vs Chelsea preview
Dybala’s absence is a major blow for the Bianconeri, who are still finding their feet under their returning manager following the disappointing Andrea Pirlo regime.
With Morata also unavailable, they will be denied the services of their two top scorers for a game against a Blues team that have conceded just four goals in the last 14 matches in the Champions League.
Having won just one of their three matches in their own back yard this season, it is certainly hard to see them collecting maximum points against such accomplished opposition.
Juventus vs Chelsea tips & predictions
In fact, those 9/10 (1.90) odds on Chelsea winning actually seem fairly generous on a solid Blues side that have won six and lost none of their last seven Champions League away games proving too strong for a Juventus side missing some key players in attack.
