The Juventus midfielder set the gears in motion for Juventus’ two-goal comeback to draw at Chelsea in their first Champions League match of this season. The Chilean, already limping from an ankle injury, thrashed low and hard past Petr Cech for the Serie A side’s first goal with half-time around the corner after Oscar’s quickfire double only a few minutes earlier.
Despite his clear limp, the 25-year-old played out the entire game and was key in the Bianconeri’s resurgence. Fabio Quagliarella scored with 10 minutes left on the clock at Stamford Bridge to finish what Vidal had admirably started. A deserved draw and the original orchestrator earned oodles of praise for battling through the ankle pains.
