Juventus vs Chelsea (September 29) betting tips and predictions
Juventus started the season on a poor form as they suffered back-to-back losses against Empoli and Napoli that saw the drop to the bottom half of the table. The Old Lady lost their highest goalscorer last season, Cristiano Ronaldo, as he joined Manchester United. Juventus are getting their form back as they are unbeaten in the last four games scoring 10 goals and conceding six goals. The Old Lady thrashed Malmo by three goals to nil in their first Champions League game this season as they sit at the top of the group. Juventus might find it very hard against Chelsea as they will be without two main players in Dybala and Morata. A win against Chelsea will further extend their lead at the top.
Chelsea suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in their last game after a woeful display. The Blues were terrible in the game as they failed to register a shot on target. Chelsea have been pretty decent this season as they are third in the Premier League table with 13 points. The Blues won their first Champions League game this season against Zenit as they look to defend their title.
