Last Wednesday, the Blues faced Wolfsburg at Kingsmeadow and treated fans to an enthralling match. Chelsea took an early lead through a brilliant finish by Sam Kerr, assisted by Ji So-Yun, however two defensive lapses allowed the visitors to go 2-1 up by half-time. Wolfsburg were able to capitalise from a third mistake from the Blues early in the second half to make it 3-1.
Chelsea reacted and a goal from Bethany England in the 51st minute left the Blues only trailing by one. A stoppage-time equaliser from Pernille Harder against her former club then sealed the deal, taking a point from the evening.
Since Wednesday, the Blues went on to beat Barclays Women’s Super League newcomers Leicester City 2-0 with goals from Harder and Kirby.
Juventus have yet to play an English team in the Champions League and head into our match having beaten Servette 3-0 in their opening group game. Juventus have won the Italian Serie A league title for the past four years since forming in 2017. Juve’s last match came last Saturday when they beat Napoli 2-0 in Serie A.
Chelsea v Juventus head-to-head record
Our one and only meeting against Juventus was back in August 2018 during a friendly at Kingsmeadow which ended 3-0 to Chelsea.
The Blues are yet to face Juventus competitively, our only other previous encounter with an Italian side was against Fiorentina back in 2018’s Champions League when we came away with a 6-0 victory.
Next up for the Blues
After Juventus, the Blues will head on international duty. Following the players' return, the next WSL match will be on Saturday 6 November.
