My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

Not long now until Champions League action happening on Tuesday as Chelsea come up against Juventus.
Chelsea's form has been inspiring ever since, going the next nine games unbeaten in all competitions, winning seven. Sitting second in the group behind this week's opponents, their only defeat so far came in a close-fought encounter as Juventus beat them 1-0 . Those were the only points dropped by the Blues to date, after an opening win at home to Zenit was followed by dominant victories against Malmo FF on each of the last two matchdays. Chelsea have kept six clean sheets in their last eight matches.
In stark contrast to their patchy domestic form, Juventus sit atop Group H with maximum points so far, after they sealed a double over Zenit St Petersburg earlier this month. Having won their first three fixtures without conceding a goal, Juventus finally succumbed to a Leonardo Bonucci own goal in Turin, but were still able to run out 4-2 winners over Malmo FF. Juve ended a three-game winless run in the league with a home victory against Fiorentina, and they followed that up with a gritty 2-0 success against Lazio in Rome.
Chelsea will be looking to avenge their 1-0 loss in Turin and certainly have form on their side. Therefore expect Chelsea to edge out Juventus or at least to be unbeaten with their home advantage and the determination for revenge.
Final Results: 1-0, 1-1
