Chelsea 4-0 Juventus: Holders advance to knock out stages

Chelsea have booked a slot in the last 16 of this season's Champions League following a 4-0 victory over visiting Juventus at Stamford Bridge. 

Thomas Tuchel's men were on a revenge mission and they achieved it after running riot with a comfortable 4-0 victory. 

The Blues opened the scoring in the 25th minute through Trevoh Chalobah. Juventus failed to deal with a corner and Rudiger deflected the ball into the path of Chalobah who thumped it home from 12 yards. There was a quick VAR check for a handball but the goal stood. 

In the 56th, Thomas Tuchel's men doubled their lead and it came from the flank. James had already let Juventus know of his striking powers in the first half but they allowed him another one from a tight angle. His chest control set up the half-volley and he pinged one into the far corner. 

Two minutes later, the Blues made it 3-0 through Hudson from James pass. He couldn't get a shot away so set up Hudson-Odoi from eight yards and he finds the far corner.

Timo Werner made it 4-0 in the stoppage time, Hakim Ziyech delivered a beautiful cross inside the box and the German international was in the right position to finish cooly.  

The victory takes the Blues above Juventus in the group on goal difference.
