UEFA Champions League

Opinion: Why Chelsea Fans Should Be Afraid After Manzano Was Named The Referee For Juventus Game


UEFA has confirmed that Manzano will officiate Juventus's Champions League match against Chelsea on Wednesday in Turin. The match will take place at Juventus Stadium. This is one of the two main reasons why Chelsea supporters should be alarmed following the announcement. 

1. He has issued a large number of yellow cards in just four games: he has issued a total of 23 yellow cards, which is a significant number. Fans should be concerned since he has the potential to deliver up to ten yellow cards in that game. Because, after all, it will almost certainly be a heated game. Because, after all, both clubs are ranked first and second in their respective conferences. It is expected that Chelsea will attack more aggressively in this game, and they are looking forward to achieving their second win in the Champions League. 

2. Messi has been sent off in the past by this referee, who is well-known in the Spanish La Liga for being a tough enforcer of the rules. He was the referee for the 0-0 draw between Real Madrid and Villarreal. The unexpected could happen, and he could show a red card to a very crucial player. Hard tackles will lnot be permitted under any circumstances. Because the referee is not from either of the clubs' home countries, the two teams should be aware that his style of refereeing may differ from theirs. 

Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from a dismal setback at the hands of Manchester City, but the team has only a few injuries to worry about and will not be in any danger. Following their victory over Sampdoria in the Serie A, Juventus will be fully prepared for the match against Inter. Despite the fact that two of their most key players will be out, Moise Kean will pose a greater threat to Chelsea. However, Tuchel will start three centre backs, which will make it difficult for the striker to make an impact on the game. 

While Allegri will start Bonucci, Chiellini, and Chelsea target De ligt, the question is whether or not they will be able to start Lukaku. As we saw against Juventus, Lukaku put in a strong performance, but without Mount and Reece James, it will be difficult to get crosses into the box for the Belgian forward.
