Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Juventus take on Torino in the Turin derby in their next outing on Saturday on the road. Chelsea return to Stamford Bridge to face Southampton in the Premier League on the same day.
Federico Chiesa's strike 11 seconds into the second half secured a 1-0 win for Juventus in their Champions League Group H clash against Chelsea. The Bianconeri cut open the Blues with ease after the restart and Chiesa found the top-left corner with his left-footed strike. It proved to be enough for the victory as Romelu Lukaku and Kai Havertz failed to convert half-chances on a frustrating night for the Blues.
90' + 4' CHANCE! Chelsea win a corner down the right flank that Chilwell takes. He floats a dangerous cross into the middle that Havertz attacks on the run, but he can only plant his effort over the bar.
90' + 3' Lukaku tries to latch on to a throughball from Kovacic, but it speeds off the surface and into the hands of Szczesny.
90' + 1' Barkley cuts in from the left flank and angles a cross to the back post. However, it evades everyone in the box and travels out for a goal-kick.
90' There will be five minutes of added time.

46' We're back under way at Allianz Stadium.
B. Chilwell
Marcos Alonso
46' Chilwell replaces Alonso at the break for the Blues.
Thomas Tuchel will not be hurried into changes at the break. His side have controlled possession and need to find their patience in the final third rather than rushing themselves, which has caused problems at the other end of the field.
It's goalless at the break between Juventus and Chelsea in their Champions League clash at Allianz Stadium.

12' Ziyech and Locatelli lock horns in a tussle, which sees the decision go the way of the home side. Ziyech has been involved in a few challenges in the early stages of the contest.
11' Alonso angles his cross towards the penalty spot, but it evades Silva and travels out for a goal-kick.
10' De Ligt handles the ball as Havetz tries to knock it past him. Chelsea have a free-kick in a dangerous spot on the right flank.
8' Bernardeschi raids forward with menace, but Kovacic sticks out a leg to dispossess the forward before he can threaten on the edge of the box.

1' We're under way at Allianz Stadium.

Chelsea have made three changes to their side that was beaten at the weekend by Manchester City. N'Golo Kante contracted Covid-19 and is now self-isolating. Reece James suffered and injury against City and misses out tonight, while Werner drops to the bench. Silva, Ziyech and Havertz come into the starting line-up for Tuchel's men.
Juve have made three changes to their side from their win over Sampdoria last time out. Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala are both injured leaving Allegri without a frontline striker for the contest. Chiesa and Bernardeschi lead the line tonight, moving forward from midfield roles. Danilo and Rabiot come into the team to replace the injured strikes. Szczesny returns to displace Perrin between the posts.

Chelsea suffered their first setback of the season at the weekend, losing 1-0 to Manchester City in the Premier League. Thomas Tuchel's men will be aiming to bounce back against Juve, although the Bianconeri will be a tough nut to crack on home soil. The Blues began their Champions League crown defence with a 1-0 win over Zenit courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku strike. It might be another tense battle tonight for the English outfit.
Juve began their Champions League campaign with a convincing victory over Malmo on the road, and Massimilano Allegri will be determined for his side to maintain their strong start. After a tough start to their Serie A campaign, the Bianconeri have found their form with back-to-back victories over Spezia and Sampdoria. Allegri's men are still not firing on all cylinders, but will be desperate to put forward a complete performance against the reigning champions.
Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League Group H clash between Juventus and Chelsea at Allianz Stadium.
