Juventus Will Enter Monday’s Champions League Last-16 Draw As Winners Of Group H After Chelsea Missed Out On Top Spot

Published

on

Timo Werner’s double either side of a Romelu Lukaku tap-in on Wednesday appeared to have given title-holders Chelsea the victory they needed to stay ahead of Juventus but Ozdoyev’s unstoppable volley from 20 metres, four minutes into injury-time, denied them.

Moise Kean gave Juventus a 1-0 win over eliminated Swedes Malmo in Turin but until the last moment it looked like it would not be enough.

Werner had struck from close-range at a corner in just 84 seconds for Chelsea’s fastest-ever Champions League goal before Claudinho and Sardar Azmoun turned the game before halftime for Zenit, who will now enter the Europa League.

The influential Werner set up Lukaku to equalise just after the hour and six minutes from time the German showed quick feet in the box before firing home.

But Chelsea could not see out the victory and, as runners-up, could potentially face a tougher draw when the knock-out phase begins next year.
