Champions League Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Chelsea

Clive Rose

THE CHAMPIONS!!!!!

By my calculations, if Juventus win this game, they will move two points clear and into second place in Group E with one round of matches to be played. Don't know if this is confirmed, just something I'm running with here and hoping somebody picks up on it.

Okay, it's true.

Yes, by all intents are purposes, this game against the defending European champions is huge. If Nordsjaelland was a must-win, this is probably 10 times that. But still, it's a must-win. It's one of those who cares how you play, just get the damn three points kind of situations.

Now, let's hope Juventus don't play like crap. That wouldn't exactly be recommended by yours truly — and probably a lot of other people as well. But, if push comes to shove, three points at this point in time of the group stage is three points. No other way around it.

Enough about that. JUST WIN.
