    Live Commentary

    90mins

    So a dramatic night of Champions League football then. Hope you enjoyed it and see you next time.

    90mins

    With Shakhtar winning they are definitely through. Juve are now in the driving seat for the other qualification spot, with Chelsea needing them to lose to Shaktar and see off Nordsjaelland themselves.

    90mins

    A disappointing night for Chelsea. They looked a real threat on the break in the first half but were barely able to cause Juve a problem with the second. The home side were able to sit a little deeper with a goal to their name and credit to them as they defended well. They were equally good going forward and punished Chelsea on two more occasions.

    90mins

    And there goes the final whistle...

    90mins

    Three minutes of injury time to play.

    90mins

    84mins

    It really doesn't look like Chelsea's night.

    84mins

    Oscar threatens on the edge of the box but he tries to turn and loses his footing.

    84mins

    Chelsea come forward but Ramires loses control of the ball and it runs clear.

    75mins

    74mins

    That should have been three. Caceres picks out Vucinic from the right but the striker hits it over from close range. A let-off for Chelsea.

    73mins

    It's all Juve at the moment. Chelsea struggling to even get hold of the ball.

    73mins

    Chelsea really need to get a hold of this game. They've been almost non-existent in this second half.

    72mins

    Vucinic goes for a long-range shot but it sails wide.

    72mins

    Juve are passing it around with real confidence now. Asamaoah eventually finds room for a shot but it sails wide.

    71mins

    Caceres with an instant impact as he plays a ball in from the right but Chelsea get it clear.

    67mins

    Lichtsteiner makes way for Caceres as Juve look to tighten things up at the back. The winger put in a good shift.

    67mins

    Torres is warming up. It can't be too long until we see him come on.

    66mins

    Chelsea have created little this half. A credit to Juve's organisation at the back.

    65mins

    Chelsea have to really go for it now. The only thing is they will leave themselves exposed and you could see Juve getting another. They have looked that dangerous.

    64mins

    Chelsea try to force their way through Juve's defence. Ramires with the shot but it is blocked.

    63mins

    A real mountain to climb for Chelsea now. They have Torres on the bench remember.

    62mins

    You have to say it looked like coming.

    61mins

    Vucinic does well to play in Asamoah down the right who then pulls it back across to Vidal waiting on the edge of the box. The midfielder calmly slots it past Cech.

    60mins

    Vucinic goes for an effort from long-range but he sends it well over.

    59mins

    Moses comes on for Azpilicueta. Like for like then but offering far more attacking options.

    58mins

    Bonucci gets the header in from the resulting corner but he heads over.

    58mins

    Quagliarella does well to beat the offside trap and tries to round Cech but the keeper does well to close him down and block the shot.

    58mins

    Cech has been a very busy man tonight.

    58mins

    Pirlo with a shot from range and he brings out a good save from Cech.

    58mins

    Quagliarella with a chance as he turns and shoots with his back to goal but it is straight at Cech. The pass to Lichtsteiner was the best option.

    57mins

    Pirlo goes for a shot from the edge of the box but it is blocked.

    57mins

    Chelsea have defended far better in this half.

    54mins

    Chelsea lucky there as a long ball over the top hits Luiz's back and bounces clear.

    53mins

    One too many passes from Juve and eventually they lose it and Pirlo fouls Oscar.

    52mins

    Hazard tries to play in Oscar but the Brazilian loses it. The Belgian has been such a threat tonight.

    52mins

    This is better from Chelsea. They need to keep this momentum going.

    51mins

    Mata hits it straight into the wall.

    50mins

    Mata and Luiz stand over it.

    49mins

    Chelsea break down the other end and Mata does well to win the free kick in a really dangerous position.

    49mins

    A penalty shout turned down for Juve. It looked like Cahill pulled Vucinic back but not given.

    49mins

    Vidal picks the ball up on the left and turns Cole before firing an effort in at goal but it is straight at Cech.

    48mins

    Pirlo with a long ball to Lichtsteiner but Cole heads clear.

    Chelsea haven't got going yet.

    47mins

    Juventus attack again as Lichtsteiner plays in Vucinic but the striker blazes it over when the pass was the best option.

    46mins

    And straight away Asamoah beats Ivanovic and fizzes a ball across the face of the goal but nobody is there to meet it.

    46mins

    45mins

    It's 2-2 in group E's other game between Nordsjaelland and Shakhtar Donetsk.

    45mins

    One minute of injury time to be played...

    45mins

    What a first half then. Juventus have been impressive, causing Chelsea's defence all sorts of problems and could have scored more. Chelsea haven't been at their best but when they have managed to break they have looked a real danger. Could have scored themselves.

    45mins

    Hazard sends in a very dangerous ball but Chiellini does well to clear. Only as far as Ramires but he pulls his shot wide.

    40mins

    Juve come forward but Lichtsteiner sends his effort wide.

    39mins

    Ashley Cole with a goal-line clearance to deny Juventus with another goal and Chelsea then break and Mata nearly scores following Hazard's cross. Unbelievable.

    38mins

    Pirlo with a long-range effort and Quagliarella manages to get the smallest of touches on it to divert it past the helpless Cech.

    37mins

    Zinedine Zidane is watching in the crowd.

    35mins

    Oscar goes close for Chelsea after Mikel plays him in but he tries to cut inside and Juve are able to recover and clear.

    35mins

    Chelsea have looked very dangerous whenever they managed to counter tonight. Mikel and Ramires are going to be pivotal tonight in breaking down Juve's moves.

    35mins

    Hazard breaks after Mikel's interception. The Belgian plays it out to Oscar but his touch lets him down.

    34mins

    Oscar tries to work his magic but he eventually loses it.

    33mins

    Chelsea break and Oscar eventually tees up Ramires for the long-range shot but it flies over.

    30mins

    Marchisio tries to play in Lichtsteiner down the right but Cole stretches to intercept.

    Ivanovic does well to stop Marchisio in his tracks though.

    28mins

    But Ramires gives it away cheaply and Juve are on the attack.

    28mins

    Chelsea with a better spell of possession now.

    27mins

    Mata sends in the free-kick but Buffon does well to claim it.

    26mins

    Oscar with some quick feet to win the foul. Lovely play.

    25mins

    Pirlo's effort is straight down the middle. Easy for Cech. Should have done better.

    Pirlo is standing over it...

    23mins

    18mins

    17mins

    The addition of Azipilicueta on the right hasn't really helped Chelsea defensively so far.

    17mins

    Asamaoah sends in another ball from the right but Chelsea get it clear. Poor ball.

    16mins

    12mins

    Lichtsteiner tries to beat Cole down the left but the full back concedes a corner.

    9mins

    Fantastic run from Oscar as he beats two men and plays in Hazard but the Belgian can only hit the side netting.
