Paul will be here from around 7.25pm. Meantime, here's Amy Lawrence's match preview:
Roberto Di Matteo wrinkled his nose at the idea that hearing the Champions League anthem will have any special effect as his team begin their title defence. The same cannot be said of Chelsea's opponents, Juventus. The significance of their return to Europe's elite is not something to be taken lightly. The message on the club's official website this week is unashamedly giddy: Europa, siamo tornati! Europe, we're back.
Although Juve did make a return to the Champions League four years ago, when they qualified with a third-place domestic finish – eventually succumbing to Chelsea in the knockout stages, as it happened – this time is different. This time they are back as Serie A winners, league leaders and Italy's most convincing flagbearers.

There's some people on the pitch ... they think it's all over ... no, hold on, it's the players and they know the match hasn't even begun.
1 min: Juve get the game going and quickly show their intent: crisp passing and swift movement ... until Vidal knocks the ball into touch while seeking Asamoah wide on the right.
2 min: Juve give the ball away in midfield and Chelsea sear forward with speed that Juve have so far lacked. Ramires was the principal runner and his burst yields a corner, which Juve cope defend easily.
4 min: Juve are looking a little wobbly at the back early doors and Chelsea have now forced a couple of corners without much bother. Lampard sends the latest one and David Luiz leaps highest but a deflection takes the power off his header and it's an easy save for Buffon.
6 min: Juve have been behaving like busted dope dealers in the last few minutes, surrendering possession to the boys in blue.
8 min: Oscar, making his first start, has had little involvement so far, nor, indeed, has Hazard. Ramires, meanwhile, has been very prominent, doing a mean impression of Yaya Touré so far.
10 min: Vucinic is starting to look dangerous for Juve, dropping between Chelsea's defence and midfield to receive the ball and conjure.
13 min: After a decent bout of passing from Chelsea, Lampard flips the ball wide to Ramires, who crosses first time to Torres, who is outnumbered three to one but still does enough to force a corner. Nothing of interest ensues.
15 min: So far this game has been like a cheap imitation of last night's Real-City encounter: more mistakes and far fewer chances, but at least there's a similarly pleasing amount of positivity from both sides.
17 min: Torres robs the ball off Pirlo in his own half and gallops forward, but his pass to Hazard is overhit and the momentum is lost.
19 min: Good run by Lampard, well found by Cole. Lampard then knocks the ball back to Hazard, whose cross from the left provokes panic in the Juve box, and Chelsea get another corner. Again nothing comes of it.
21 min: Shoddy by Chelsea! Shoddier by Marchisio! The Italian surged from deep, past the dozing Chelsea players to latch on to a long ball over the top. His attempt to take the ball down on his thigh goes awry, however, and Cech charges off the line to smother his shot.
23 min: Chance for Chelsea! Hazard rolled an inviting ball across the face of goal. Ramires collected it seven yards, twice feigned to shoot and then rolled it to Torres, who was marked by two defenders. Why didn't the Brazilian shoot (by) himself?
26 min: Chelsea are racking up corners like Marlo Stanfield but making much less profitable use of them.
28 min: Dreadful play all round! Ivanovic gave the ball away to Vidal to enable Juve to counter attack quickly. Vidal drew two defenders and then knocked the ball to Vucinic, who has time to size up his options 18 yards from goal ... and then blems the ball badly wide.
GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Juventus (Oscar 31') He had been virtually irrelevant to proceedings for most of the match, but Oscar has made his mark, thanks in no small part to a crucial deflection off Bonucci. Hazard cut in from the left before passing to Oscar, who took on touch and then let fly from 25 yards. Buffon would have probably have saved it but Bonucci stuck out a leg to help it into the top corner.
GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Juventus (Oscar 33') If his first goal carried a bit of fortune, the second was undeniably superb! With a single touch Oscar controlled a pass and wrongfooted the defence before curling a wonderful shot over Buffon and into the net from 20 yards! Oscar's no slouch.
35 min: Juventus try to get back on their feet after those two body blows, and Vidal forges a decent shooting opportunity before tonking the ball over from 18 yards.
GOAL! Chelsea 2-1 Juventus (Vidal 38') That's another lovely goal. Chelsea have switched off a tad since their second goal and Juve punished them, a quickfire move concluding with Vidal receiving the ball 20 yards out and lashing a low shot into the corner.
40 min: This game looks like coughing up plenty more goals, as Juve look ropy at the back but clever going forward. "There's got to be some quality headlines tomorrow morning, based on those Chelsea goals: surely time to start a headline contest?" reckons Andrew McNab before offering this effort: "Chelsea Number 11 far from statue-esque in Oscar-winning performance."
43 min: That's better from Chelsea: after a sustained spell of keep-ball, Torres rolled the ball smartly into the path of Ramires, whose 16-yard drive from the right was beaten away by Buffon. "What is strange is about this Chelsea performance is our poor set-pieces, a big change from past seasons where Chelsea were consistently a big threat," blubs Luke Garrat. "Perhaps that is the price for accommodating players such as Hazard, Oscar and Torres for the likes of Drogba, Kalou and Malouda. I'll take Oscar's goal any day though!"
45 min: Freekick to Juve 26 yards out, a little to the left. Pirlo stands over it ominously ...
45+1 min: Pirlo curls the freekick wide. In other news, Salomon Kalou's Lille are 3-0 to Bate Borisov at half-time. At home.
Half-time: This game could still go either way. Two bolts from the new boy in blue have put Chelsea in front but Juve have proven they are plenty dangerous enough to overturn this deficit and win. By the same token, Chelsea look capable of scoring more. Larks ahead.
47 min: The second half begins where the first left off, with helter-skelter vibe. Chelsea are the first to threaten, Hazard donking a ball towards the back post but it's fractionally too high for Ramires, who can't steer his header on target.
50 min: more decent work by Chelsea, who circulate the ball tidily for two minutes before Ivanovic decides to have a ping: his swirling effort from 25 yards almost finds a way past Buffon. But doesn't.
52 min: Bonucci takes down Lampard, giving Chelsea a freekick on the edge of the area, almost dead central ...
53 min: Lampard curls the freekick around the wall but not past Buffon, who bats it to safety.
55 min: A pause in play as two players receive treatment: Ramires, who was felled by Buffon as the keeper clasped a cross, and Lichtsteiner, who seems to have pulled something.
58 min: Hazard shows great speed to beat Barzagi to a through-ball and then darts in front of the defender in an attempt to draw a penalty. Barzagli does touch but the ref rightly rules that the contact was not strong or sinister enough to send the Belgian to the ground, so rejects the appeals for a penalty and orders Hazard to get to his feet.
60 min: has Tito Vilanova taken Barcelona as far as he can? Sprtak Moscow are leading 2-1 at the Nou Camp! And there we were thinking that Zenit St Petersburg were the Russian team to watch this season ...
61 min: Giovinco wastes a freekick, wafting the ball high and wide from 20 yards.
63 min: pressure from Juve! First Giovinco goes close with a fine run and shot, then Bonucci heads against the back of Mikel's head four yards from goal.
65 min: Juve are getting stronger and really penning Chelsea back. Only a last-ditch intervention by David Luiz prevented Marchisio from levelling the scores from 18 yards just now.
68 min: Following an increasingly rare Chelsea foray forward, Torres falls at the edge of the box and howls hopefully for a penalty. The ref, who has had a fine game, ignores him.
Chelsea substitution: Ramires off, Bertrand on.
73 min: Chelsea are defending deep and in numbers now, seemingly concerned only with clinging on to their lead.
Chelsea substitution: Oscar off, Mata on.
Juventus substitution: Giovinco off, Quagliarella on.
77 min: As Chelsea set about applying a death grip to the game, Juve make another change, Isla replacing Lichtsteiner.
79 min: That was lovely stuff by Chelsea, with Mata and Hazard carving Juve apart with sumptuous interplay. Alas, they couldn't crown it with a goal, Mata shooting into the sidenetting from 12 yards.
GOAL! Chelsea 2-2 Juventus (Quagliarella 81') Mikel gave the ball away deep in his own half and Chelsea dawdled, no one more so than Terry, who yet again let Quagliarella dart past him to receive a deep pass from Marchisio and the Italian slotted it under Cech for a deserved equaliser.
83 min: Juventus are going for a winner here and there's every chance they'll get it: Chelsea are struggling to cope with their midfield movement.
86 min: Lovely turn and shot by Quagliarella: Cech is beaten but the ball hits the top side of the bar and drops behind. Chelsea exhale. "I see EBJT is starting his annual subconscious mission to sabotage Chelsea's Champions League run early this year," drawls Luke Garrat. "Also, we lost all forward defensive pressure with the forced substitutions of Ramires and Oscar.
Juve substitution: Vucinic off, Matri on.
89 min: Chelsea are steadying the ship ...
Full-time: Chelsea should be happy with that result on a night that exposed plenty of problems as well as introducing the exciting Oscar.
