Juventus v Chelsea history

Juventus will be looking for their first competitive win over Chelsea when the two sides face each other in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Old Lady are back in Europe’s premier club competition and will come up against the reigning champions in midweek.

The two sides have met just twice in the past, back in the 2008-09, at the last 16 stage of the European Cup.

Didier Drogba scored the only goal at Stamford Bridge back in February 2009.

The return leg ended 2-2 with goals from Vincenzo Iaquinta, Michael Essien, an Alessandro Del Piero penalty and another Drogba goal. Giorgio Chiellini was dismissed in that tie.

Juventus line-up for the 1-0 defeat: Buffon, Mellberg, Chiellini, Legrottaglie, Molinaro, Camoranesi (Marchionni 51), Sissoko (Trezeguet 86), Tiago (Marchisio 62), Nedved, Del Piero, Amauri.

Juventus line-up for the 2-2 draw: Buffon, Grygera, Mellberg, Chiellini, Molinaro, Tiago, Marchisio, Nedved (Salihamidzic 13), Iaquinta (Giovinco 61), Del Piero, Trezeguet (Amauri 79).
