Chelsea: Emma Hayes expecting 'epic battle'

Chelsea Women boss Emma Hayes revealed she is expecting an epic battle when they take on Juventus in the Champions League. They drew their opening match against Wolfsburg and two points behind Juventus. The latter is managed by ex-Arsenal Women boss Joe Montemurro after he completed a four-year spell at the club.

“This is Italy, it’s an amazing place to play football and an opponent we haven’t played in the Champions League yet.” Chelsea Women boss Emma Hayes said. “So I think [there is] intrigue and interest, but a coach that I know very well and I’m looking forward to seeing Joe tomorrow in what is always an epic battle between us both.”

“My number one goal is winning tomorrow night,” she added. “It’s an amazing opportunity to come to Turin to play Juventus. We expect a crowd, expect a tense atmosphere. I know we’ve got a dressing room that is really enjoying playing in the Champions League and we’re just looking forward to pitting ourselves against the top team in Italy. I certainly get the most joy from playing against teams I don’t know too much about. Obviously I know Joe and I’m looking forward to seeing him tomorrow and saying ‘Hi’ and I’m sure he’ll bring a lot of success to this football club.”

“Last time we played Juventus was three or four years ago, so you don’t play them very often which makes it even more special.” Chelsea defender Magdalena Eriksson said. “It’s exciting to see where you’re at compared to other top teams in other top leagues, so I’m excited by that.”
