Juventus secure a 1-0 victory over European Champions, Chelsea, ending their Champions League unbeaten Champions League group game run of 12 games.

The Blues entered the game without N'golo Kante, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Reece James who picked up an injury in the 1-0 home defeat to Manchester City.

Chelsea who last lost in September 2019 against Valencia (1-0) were hoping to bounce back from the Premier League defeat over the weekend but the Turin side had other plans.

Federico Chiesa's left-footed strike 11 seconds into the second half sealed the win for The Bianconeri.

Romelu Lukaku and Kai Havertz failed to make their half-chances count, leaving The Blues frustrated.

Juventus are unbeaten in their last four UEFA Champions League encounters against Chelsea (W2 D2), winning their last two without conceding.

The Bianconeri move top of Group H with six points in two matches while Chelsea are second with three points after beating third-placed Zenith 1-0 at Stamford Bridge a fortnight ago.

Zenith who are levelled on point with The Blues sank Malmo to the bottom of the table with a 4-0 defeat.
