“The team played a good first half in London, the game was balanced until minute 55. Perhaps we played a better first half than the reverse fixture in Turin, but we melted after their second goal.

Allegri's side did win the first clash between the two top-flight clubs 1-0 in September, thanks to a stunning goal from Federico Chiesa.

The reverse fixture, however, now sees Chelsea in the drivers seat in Group H. Both teams are sat comfortably on 12 points, guaranteeing them a place in the round of 16, but Chelsea are well ahead on goal difference.

The Blues' last match of the group stage will be against Zenit St. Petersburg, while Juventus are set to take on Malmo.
