Half-time: Juventus 1 Chelsea 0

first_imgChelsea, playing without a recognised striker, trail in Turin to Fabio Quagliarella’s 38th-minute goal.Andrea Pirlo tried his luck from 30 yards and, although a deflection off Quagliarella took the sting out of the shot, an off-balance Petr Cech was unable to keep it out despite getting a hand to the ball.Cech had earlier produced two excellent saves, first turning Stephan Lichsteiner’s close-range effort onto the post and then clawing away Claudio Marchisio’s shot.At the other end, Oscar ran at the Juve defence and picked out Eden Hazard, whose shot was tipped into the side-netting by keeper Gianluigi BuffonWith Daniel Sturridge injured and Fernando Torres having been dropped, Oscar, Hazard and Juan Mata formed Chelsea’s attack and looked dangerous on the break.But the home side had the upper hand and after opening the scoring, they almost doubled their lead.Kwadwo Asamoah’s cross struck David Luiz and was heading into the corner of the net before Ashley Cole cleared off the line.Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Ivanovic, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Hazard, Mata, Oscar. Subs: Turnbull, Romeu, Torres, Moses, Marin, Bertrand, Piazon.Click here for the Juventus v Chelsea quizSee also:Torres could be axed for Juventus 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img
