Chelsea v Juventus betting tips: Point is all Blues need
Preview and odds for Tuesday’s Champions League clash
Chelsea are flying high at the top of the Premier League and are now looking to reach the last 16 of the Champions League as we highlight some Chelsea v Juventus betting tips.
The defending champions only need a point to guarantee their place in the knockout stage but a victory would boost their hopes of going through as group winners.
Tuesday’s match kicks off at 8pm at Stamford Bridge and is live on BT Sport.
Chelsea v Juventus match odds
These two teams have dominated Group H as expected and are almost certainly both going through to the latter stages of the tournament.
Juventus have already qualified after winning their first four matches which should boost Chelsea’s hopes of getting a positive result here.
Chelsea were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Burnley prior to the international but got back on track on Saturday with an impressive 3-0 win at Leicester. They are now unbeaten in nine matches in all competitions with seven wins during that run.
Thomas Tuchel’s men have kept clean sheets in 11 of their 12 wins this season so taking 13/8 for a home victory to nil is a good way to bump up the odds for Chelsea v Juventus betting tips.
Chelsea v Juventus head-to-head
Chelsea are unbeaten since these teams met in the reverse fixture in Turin in September when Federico Chiesa’s rocket finish clinched a 1-0 win for Juventus.
The Italy forward sneaked in on goal and lashed past Edouard Mendy as Chelsea were caught cold just 11 seconds into the second half.
The visitors were still processing their half-time adjustments when Juventus struck and Tuchel’s side never recovered with Romelu Lukaku and Kai Havertz failing to hit the target with fine late chances.
In four meetings prior to this season, both teams have enjoyed one win apiece while there have been two 2-2 draws.
Chelsea v Juventus key battles
Clean sheets are the backbone of Chelsea’s success this season and another on Tuesday would guarantee their qualification.
Juventus have kept back-to-back clean sheets in Serie A and have only conceded two goals in the Champions League so chances are likely to be at a premium.
