Chelsea Icon Zola reacts on ‘Juventus-Chelsea more than Chiellini-Lukaku

Gianfranco Zola explains stopping Romelu Lukaku won’t be enough for Juventus to neutralize Chelsea, while Giorgio Chiellini is ‘the last of the great markers.’

It kicks off at the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

While Juve have an injury crisis leaving Moise Kean as the only available striker

the Blues make the trip without N’Golo Kante, who tested positive for COVID-19.

former Chelsea star and assistant manager Zola told the Corriere Della Sera newspaper.

“It’s going to be a very difficult game, as Chelsea are strong in every area, even if this last-minute loss of Kante is going to be damaging,”

“The English teams are in great shape and Juve will need something special to win this game.”

Chelsea had already won the Champions League last season, but also reinforced with the arrival of Lukaku from Inter, at €115m.

“Thomas Tuchel’s squad was of the highest quality, but it did have a few gaps, above all a reference point in the attack”

“In Lukaku, they signed probably the best available option.”

During his time at Inter, and when playing for Belgium at UEFA EURO 2020, Lukaku has often struggled against Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

“All forwards struggle against Giorgio! He’s like a Highlander”

“he never ages and is perhaps the last of the great markers in defending,” smiled Zola.

“Chelsea are not just Lukaku, though, as they can also rely on Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech”

Amongst others, and they are all dangerous elements.”

“He can still improve, as he should vary his moves a bit more. If he listens to Allegri, he’ll become a top-level player, even superior to the level he has already reached.”
