Juventus vs Chelsea Madrid build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It wouldn’t be unfair to say Juventus endured a poor start to the new season, but they have finally found their way. The Bianconeri lost two and drew one of their opening three matches, but used their Champions League opener against Malmo to build an unbeaten run. Including that 3-0 win away from home, which sees Juventus top of Group H, the Bianconeri are unbeaten in four matches. In Serie A that run has consisted of a 1-1 draw with AC Milan before wins over Spezia and Sampdoria – their first domestic victories of the season to lift them up to ninth.
Chelsea, meanwhile, enjoyed a fantastic start to the season that saw them tipped by some to sweep up a plethora of silverware across the campaign. They have already secured the Uefa Super Cup, beating Villarreal on penalties, a result on which they built an eight-game unbeaten run including seven wins (including two penalty shootout victories). However, the mentality of Thomas Tuchel’s side has faced its first test of the season as Chelsea were beat 1-0 by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, a game in which they were thoroughly outplayed. So the defending European champions will travel to Italy looking to prove it was a mere blip.
- Juventus (vs Sampdoria): Perin; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro; Chiesa, Bentancur, Locatelli, Bernardeschi; Dybala*, Morata*.
- Chelsea (vs Manchester City): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen; James*, Kante*, Kovacic, Jorginho*, Alonso; Lukaku, Werner.
Despite the win at the weekend, Juventus faced more bad news with Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata ruled out due to muscle injuries and Aaron Ramsey has since joined them on the sidelines. Reece James and Mason Mount will miss the trip to Turin due to injury, with N’Golo Kante also absent. Jorginho is a doubt having come off in the defeat against Man City with injury.

Players to watch:
- Juventus: With Dybala and Morata both injured, the goalscoring responsibility will fall on Moise Kean, with the Italian expected to lead Juventus’ line in their absence. Kean returned to Juventus in the summer on loan from Everton (with an obligation to buy), for whom he had initially left the Bianconeri in 2019. But life back in Turin so far has been much like his spell at Everton, with Kean struggling to get significant game time under Massimiliano Allegri. Kean has played five games for Juventus so far, featuring in all possible matches since his return, but he has accumulated just 121 minutes across those appearances with just one start. However, in that start Kean did score his only goal of the season so far, netting the opener in a 3-2 win over Spezia. A similar start in midweek would put Juventus in a good position to cause Chelsea problems.
- Chelsea: Looking to foil Kean and the rest of the Juventus attack will be Edouard Mendy, who has been a phenom between the sticks for Chelsea in the Champions League. Since the start of last season, the Senegalese goalkeeper has played in 13 of Chelsea’s 14 Champions League matches en route to the winning the competition in May, conceding just three goals. Against Zenit last time out, Mendy kept his 10th clean sheet in the Champions League, the second quickest goalkeeper to reach that milestone behind only Keylor Navas (11 games). And Mendy goes into the game in good form too, despite conceding against Man City at the weekend, having made a handful of crucial saves at Stamford Bridge to keep the score at 1-0.
