Chelsea boost: Juve lose two stars for UCL tie

Huge boost for Chelsea as Juventus will be without two key players for UCL showdown

September 27, 2021 By Ali M.
Allegri's side will be without two key attackers when the champions of Europe pay them a visit.

Chelsea are set to resume their UEFA Champions League campaign this midweek, with the Premier League giants taking to the field this Wednesday in one of the standout fixtures of round two. The champions of Europe will face Juventus in Turin in what should be a thrilling encounter, with fans eagerly awaiting this fixture.

Tuchel's men will be looking to return to winning ways when they visit the Italian powerhouse. The Blues head into this tie on the back of their 1-0 defeat at home to Man City on Saturday, with Lukaku and Co. needing to bounce back as soon as possible in their campaign to conquer both England and Europe.

Fortunately for the London giants, they will face a Bianconeri side who will be without two key players. They are none other than Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata, two attackers tasked with taking up the mantle in the Old Lady's post-Cristiano season.

The Argentine, who scored an excellent goal in his side's 3-2 win over Sampdoria over the weekend, left the pitch in tears after picking up an unfortunate thigh injury. As for the Spanish striker, he picked up a hamstring issue and will thus sit out the clash with his former club.

Dybala's reaction in particular had fans fearing a prolonged absence in what would be yet another knock in an injury-plagued past few years. On Monday, Juventus offered an update on the two attackers, revealing both good news and bad. 

Both players are expected back after the upcoming international break, meaning no prolonged absence for Dybala as initially feared. However, they will not only sit out the upcoming UEFA Champions League clash with Chelsea but also the crucial Derby della Mole against Torino on Saturday.

"The results showed for Alvaro Morata a low-grade muscle injury of the hamstring in the right thigh," the club's official statement read.

"For Paulo Dybala an elongation of the semitendinosus muscle in the left thigh.

"Both will be available after the international break."

Allegri's men have not started the 2021/22 Serie A season well, with the Old Lady picked up only two victories from their opening six fixtures, failing to win any of their first four outings. Torina have not been any better, racking up one less point than their bitter rivals, but seeing Juventus lose their two key attackers to injuries will give them much-needed confidence for their weekend showdown.
