Trainer Chelsea , Thomas Tuchel, insists Kante must undergo self-quarantine so he misses the nearest match. The Blues scheduled to do matchday both Group H at Allianz Stadium, Turin, Thursday (30/9/2021).
In addition, Kante is also doubtful for appearing against Southampton in the 2021/2022 Premier League at Stamford Bridge, London, Saturday (2/9/2021).
Tuchel said Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount and Reece James would also not play against Juventus. Pulisic and Mount have been sidelined with previous injuries.
James sprained his ankle and was pulled off in the 29th minute of Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Manchester City.
Previously, in this season’s Champions League, the team Thomas Tuchel managed to achieve a narrow 1-0 victory over Zenit at Stamford Bridge. Kante also missed the match because he was still recovering from an injury. However, names such as Kai Havertz and Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaced the vacant position that Kante had left for a while.
Chelsea themselves do not want to come to Juventus with minor results. They came looking for a win to defend the Champions League crown they won last season.
Meanwhile, the opponents they will face have just returned to achieving good results in the Italian League this season, which previously played poorly at the beginning of 2021-2022. Despite playing badly at the start of the Italian League season, Juventus were able to win their first Champions League victory over Malmo 3-0.
