Federico Chiesa’s rocket finish stunned Chelsea in Turin as Juventus condemned the Blues to a second straight 1-0 defeat.
Italy forward Chiesa sneaked in on goal and strike, past Edouard Mendy as Chelsea were caught cold just 11 seconds into the second half.
The visitors were still processing their half-time adjustments when Juventus struck and, Thomas Tuchel’s side never recovered.
Chelsea had opened their Champions League defence with a 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg at Stamford Bridge on September 14, and this loss left their Group H status in the balance.
Chelsea is still expected to qualify for the last 16, despite losing 1-0 to Juventus.
Juventus are still adapting to life since the return of Allegri as coach and the departure of Ronaldo but, this could be a formative result for them against the holders.
