Juventus 3-0 Win Over Chelsea

An intimidating atmosphere engulfs the Champions, Sebastian Giovinco takes his shirt off in delight after putting his side 3-0 up. Di Matteo can only look on, vacantly, his grip on the Chelsea job, slowly slipping away. 

 
The horrors of the game were perhaps not apparent early in the first half, both sides looked promising going forward with the decision by Di Matteo not to go with a recognised striker looking like it could pay off. The defining moment came not long before half time, Quagliarella had given Juventus the lead a moment ago. Juan Mata was played in by Eden Hazard, only Buffon in his way and in uncharacteristic fashion, he fluffed it. 
 
Chelsea had been in the game in the first half, second half they were drowned out by Juve's five man midfield. Andre Pirlo commanded the play, Chelsea struggled to really trouble the Juventus goal for much of the half. The game was wrapped up, when Arturo Vidal generated a roar from the Juve crowd. Arriving in late and unmarked, he slipped the ball home, suspect defending from Chelsea. What damaged Chelsea was their inability to put a meaningful ball into the box or really test the Italian national keeper, Gigi Buffon. On 90 minutes, Chelsea were carved, Sebastian Giovinco had free running lane as he slipped it past Cech for 3-0. Game, set and match, Chelsea dealt a stern test, similar to that they faced in Italy last time they visited. Leaving the retaining of the Champions League hanging on thread.
