First place in Group H will be decided in the Champions League first kicks off on Wednesday as defending champions Chelsea travel to Russia while Juventus take on Malmö.
The Blues hold the advantage after brushing aside the Serie A giants in their last European game, and just need to match Juve’s result to secure a seed for the round of 16.
But a weekend loss at West Ham has left questions about Thomas Tuchel’s side, who no longer sit atop the Premier League. That said, Juventus have hardly appreciated the simpler start to the season.
A number of injuries to Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, as well as a busy streak of matches and their already secured qualification, resulted in a number of changes in Tuchel’s starting XI.
With the kick off at 5:45 pm, join James Robson and Marc Mayo for all the latest game updates…
