Juventus going to Chelsea for maximum points - Vucinic

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic has made it clear that the Italian club are not coming to London this week to make up the numbers.

The Turin outfit take on reigning European champions Chelsea in their Champions League group opener at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night and the Montenegro international is targeting maximum points.

"This is not the same Chelsea as last season because in the last few weeks they have failed in several matches and that increases our chances for Wednesday," said in regards to Chelsea's UEFA Super Cup loss to Atletico Madrid and scoreless draw with QPR in the Premier League on the weekend.

"Will we play for a draw? Never! Our challenge is to win three points. We are the best team in Italy and it's a matter of pride for the players.

"Stamford Bridge is not the best place for us to open the group but there exists no fear," he added.

"We are the champions of Italy and that gives us a prestige we need to exploit. This is our return to the Champions League and very special.

"Chelsea are European champions and deserve our respect, but we go to London without fear and with a lot of confidence."
