Chelsea crushed the Bianconeri as they reached the top of the Group H standings.
Chelsea defeated Juventus 3-0 in their Champions League game on Tuesday. The Blues displayed great dominance as they leapfrogged their opponents on the group table.
Chelsea are unstoppable!
Chelsea dominated the possession early on and got their first goal in the 25th minute. Sierra Leonian-born starlet Trevoh Chalobah scored his third goal of the season for the Blues as they went ahead early on.
The Blues were not clinical enough to convert their chances at the beginning of the second half. However, they found their rhythm soon and doubled their lead through a stunning strike from Reece James.
Juventus’ backline was completely shattered after the second goal as they conceded the third one only three minutes later. Callum Hudson-Odoi converted Loftus-Cheek’s assist after a brilliant piece of buildup play.
Despite being three goals ahead, Chelsea continued their brilliant football until the last minute. Timo Werner made it 4-0 for Thoams Tuchel’s side upon making his return from an injury.
Chelsea lead the Group H table with 12 points from their five matches. They have the same points tally as Juventus but with a better goal difference. The Blues will now prepare for their crucial Premier League battle against Manchester United on Sunday.
