Pernille Harder scored for the second straight game in the Women’s Champions League as his goal helped Chelsea beat Juventus 2-1 in Turin.
The world’s most expensive player scored a final tying goal against Wolfsburg last week to secure a point for Chelsea, and again scored a vital goal on Wednesday.
A blocked effort from Sam Kerr swerved on his way, which Harder sent home to secure last season’s Champions League finalist Chelsea, their first three points in Group A.
Emma Hayes’ team took the lead in the first half after a good run from Erin Cuthbert who saw them finish categorically in the 31st minute.
Joe Montemurro’s Juventus leveled out soon after as Barbara Bonansea (37) returned home a floating cross from Lisa Boattin, but it was Chelsea who brought the points back to London.
This allows Chelsea to finish second in Group A, behind Wolfsburg on goal difference after their 5-0 victory over Servette FC. Juventus slipped to third place with three points.
Chelsea are back in action on October 31 when they face Man City in the FA Cup semi-final. They return to the Champions League on November 9, facing Swiss club Servette FC.
