Juve's next match is against Lazio, who were destroyed 4-0 at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian Super Cup just over a week ago.
"In all honesty, I would've preferred to wait more before meeting Lazio again. So few days have gone by since the Super Cup and nobody thinks the 4-0 represents a realistic gap between the teams. We did well to make the most of the opportunities, but it will be a very difficult game," said Chiellini.
