Chelsea’s Pernille Harder (right) scored the game-winning goal in the second half.
Chelsea earned their first victory in the Women’s Champions League this season with a strong performance against Juventus.
At the Allianz Stadium, Erin Cuthbert’s superb solo goal had placed the visitors ahead after little over half an hour.
Barbara Bonansea volleyed in from a cross for Juventus nearly immediately.
Pernille Harder, on the other hand, handed Chelsea the victory when she scored the game-winning goal in a congested area.
After a 3-3 draw with Wolfsburg in their first game, Chelsea now has four points from two games in Group A.
Harder’s goal for the Blues added to her excellent start to the season, as the Denmark international’s recent score was her fifth in all competitions.
The 28-year-old also netted a late equalizer against Wolfsburg, whom she left in the summer to join Chelsea.
Harder, who has 32 goals in 40 Champions League appearances, added, “I feel like I’m in a groove.”
“I’ve had a terrific pre-season and believe I’ve settled in well with the squad. I, as well as the rest of the team, continue to grow, which I like.”
“She had a fantastic performance,” Chelsea manager Emma Hayes said of her new recruit’s impact since joining the club.
“She is a vital member for our club, and I am thrilled to have her on board.”
In Turin, Hayes’ side faced a difficult challenge against a squad that had won their previous 11 games in a row, including eight clean sheets at home.
Cuthbert got the ball outside the area, danced past defenders, and tapped home in the 31st minute, through Juventus’ near-impenetrable defense.
It temporarily quieted the home fans, but Juventus’ comeback was as spectacular as it was quick, with Lisa Boattin playing a long ball into the far side of the box, where Bonansea had gotten ahead of the defense to drive inside the near post.
Chelsea had scored first only to surrender for the second time in as many games in the tournament.
They reacted by retaking the lead, unlike against Wolfsburg, when they fell down 3-1 before battling back for a tie.
In the second half, the visitors were the superior team and were rewarded for their offensive energy when Harder scored after excellent work by Fran Kirby and Sam Kerr.
Chelsea were only stopped from winning by a larger margin by a superb late save by Pauline Peyraud-Magnin to keep out Kerr’s effort.
