Chelsea vs Juventus is a huge game in Group E of the Champions League on Tuesday night. With just one point separating the top three teams in the group the loser of this game could be on the verge of elimination. The game kicks off at 2.45 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Chelsea's attempt to retain their Champions League title has run into some serious problems and as they come into the final two games of the group stage they still have it all to do. Chelsea are currently second in the group, joint with Shakhtar Donetsk on seven points. Juventus are third just a point behind with just six points from their four games.
However, Chelsea have to travel to Italy today for an intimidating away fixture with the Italian giants. They will be looking to avoid a loss at all costs, with a draw allowing them to keep their destiny in their own hands going into the final game. A win would be the perfect scenario and would see them qualify for the knock out stages tonight with a game in hand.
For Chelsea Juan Mata, Oscar, Ramires and Branislav Ivanovic will all return for this crucial match. However, John Terry will miss the game, and Ashley Cole is hopeful although a decision for him will likely be made prior to kick off.
For Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is back from his suspension but Mirko Vucinic will miss the tie against the Blues.
Chelsea come into this game in worrying form, which if continues today could potentially result in them being on the verge of elimination. Playing away to Juventus is not a game a team low on confidence would look forward to. The Blues have won only two of their last seven games, most recently they lost to West Brom at The Hawthorns.
Manager Roberto Di Matteo has said that he could drop Fernando Torres after the striker has scored just one goal in his last seven appearances.
