TURIN, Italy (AP) -Chelsea can qualify for the next round of the Champions League with a win at Juventus on Tuesday, although the defending champions need to overturn a dismal record in their previous eight visits to Italy and quickly move on from a domestic loss to West Bromwich Albion.

The London club's only success when visiting Serie A clubs came with a 4-0 group win over Lazio in 2003, when Frank Lampard scored the final goal. The other seven matches resulted in four losses and three draws.

Group E is tight, with Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea leading with seven points each and Juventus one point behind. Danish club Nordsjaelland is last with one point.

Shakhtar can also advance Tuesday with a win at Nordsjaelland.
