Commentary

Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Chelsea are next in action on Sunday against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. Juve return to Serie A action on Saturday at home to Atalanta.
Chelsea have stormed their way into the last 16 of the Champions League with a 4-0 hammering of Juventus at Stamford Bridge. Trevoh Chalobah put the Blues ahead in the first half with a fine strike from 10 yards. Reece James continued his outstanding season in front of goal with a blast on the half-volley to double their advantage before Callum Hudson-Odoi added a third on his left foot. Timo Werner capped off the performance, tapping home a fourth from Hakim Ziyech's cross. Chelsea move to the top of Group H after their rout of the Italian outfit, who slip into second.

C. Hudson-Odoi
Goal
58' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! HUDSON-ODOI MAKES IT THREE!!!!!! 3-0 CHELSEA!!!!! The Blues surely put the game out of Juve's reach as Hudson-Odoi slams home a strike from close range. James takes possession in the right-inside channel and feeds Loftus-Cheek on the charge through the middle. He cannot find space for a shot, but he offloads for Hudson-Odoi to fire past Szczesny on his left foot.
R. James
Goal
55' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! JAMES BLASTS HOME A STRIKE!!!!!! 2-0 CHELSEA!!!!!! The Blues extend their lead as James fires a crisp strike past Szczesny. The wing-back gathers a cross from Ziyech in the right-inside channel before he lines up a drive. His effort rockets into the bottom-left corner to hand Chelsea control of the contest.

46' We're back under way at Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel will be pleased with his side's performance in the first half, although he will be looking for a cutting edge to take the game away from the Italian outift. Christian Pulisic has been quiet and Tuchel may turn to Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku for inspiration.
Chelsea hold a 1-0 lead over Juventus at the break in their Champions League clash. The home side took the lead through Trevoh Chalobah, who produced a fine finish from close range after latching on to Antonio Rudiger's knockdown. Juve could have hit back as Alvaro Morata clipped a strike over Edouard Mendy, only to be denied by an excellent clearance by Thiago Silva. The Blues are in front, but the game remains in the balance.

T. Chalobah
Goal
25' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! CHALOBAH FIRES CHELSEA AHEAD!!!! 1-0!!!!! The Blues take the lead as Chalobah produces a clinical finish from close range. Ziyech whips a corner in from the left flank that Rudiger chests down into the path of Chalobah. The defender takes on the strike first time and drills his attempt on the half-volley into the top-left corner. The ball appears to strike Rudiger on the arm in front of his chest, which Juve appeal against. However, the goal is confirmed by VAR.

1' We're under way at Stamford Bridge.
Since beating Juventus in the first ever meeting between the two clubs (1-0 in the UEFA Champions League in February 2009), Chelsea are winless in their last four games against the Italian side in European competition (D2 L2).
Juve have made two changes to their side that beat Lazio last time out. Danilo misses out for the Bianconeri, which sees Cuadrado slide into the back four. Alex Sandro returns for the visitors along with Bentancur, who replaces Luca Pellegrini. Former Chelsea forward Morata spearheads the attack alongside Chiesa. Giorgio Chiellini, Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia De Sciglio are still sidelined with injuries.
Chelsea have made two changes from their win over Leicester City at the weekend. Pulisic and Ziyech come into the fold to replace Mount and Kai Havertz, who misses out for the Blues due to injury. Lukaku returns to the bench for the Blues after a spell on the sidelines, but Mateo Kovacic remains out.
JUVENTUS SUBS: Arthur, Paulo Dybala, Moise Kean, Carlo Pinsoglio, Daniele Rugani, Mattia Perin, Dejan Kulusevski, Koni de Winter.
JUVENTUS (4-4-2): Wojciech Szczesny; Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro; Adrien Rabiot, Manuel Locatelli, Rodrigo Bentancur, Weston McKennie; Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa.
CHELSEA SUBS: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Marcus Bettinelli, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Cesar Azpilicueta, Malang Sarr.
CHELSEA (3-4-3): Edouard Mendy; Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger; Reece James, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ben Chilwell; Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Juventus have already booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League, winning all four of their Group H matches to date. The Bianconeri can ensure that they advance into the next round of the competition as group winners by defeating Chelsea tonight. Juve have reeled off three wins on the bounce, including an impressive 2-0 win over Lazio at the weekend. Massimiliano Allegri’s men will be out to thwart the holders tonight.
Chelsea know that a point will be good enough to secure their place in the round of 16 after their win over Malmo last time out in the competition. However, revenge will be firmly on the minds of the Blues after suffering a defeat at the hands of Juve in the reverse fixture. Thomas Tuchel and his team are in outstanding form after brushing aside Leicester City last week, and he will be looking for a performance of similar authority.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League clash between Chelsea and Juventus at Stamford Bridge.
