Chelsea booked a hard-fought victory over FC Zenit in the group stage of the Champions on Tuesday.

Thanks to a goal from Romelu Lukaku, manager Thomas Tuchel's team won 1-0 in London.

Juventus and Matthijs de Ligt were far too strong for Malmö FF in Sweden: 0-3.

After a difficult first half, 28-year-old Lukaku broke the spell for the home team halfway through the second half.

The Belgian nodded on a pass from César Azpilicueta with a nice header and thus ensured the only goal of the game.

Zenit should have scored the equalizer in the final phase.

Artem Dzyuba received the ball perfectly and was able to tap in behind Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy, but missed the ball completely.

Shortly before that, Chelsea, where Hakim Ziyech was substituted after an hour, could have further increased the score.

A shot by Marcos Alonso, however, went right past the wrong side of the post.

Lukaku, who moved from Internazionale to Chelsea this summer for 115 million euros, continued his excellent form with his goal.

He has already scored three times in the first three Premier League games of the season.

Juventus has an easy evening in Sweden

Juventus had no problem with Malmö, the current number four of the Swedish Allsvenskan.

Goals from Alex Sandro, Paolo Dybala (from a penalty) and Álvaro Morata made it 0-3 halfway through.

After the break, Juventus took the gas back and the formation of coach Massimiliano Allegri was unable to further expand the score.

De Ligt, who received a yellow card fifteen minutes after the break, played the entire game in Sweden.

Group H in the Champions League will be continued in two weeks with FC Zenit-Malmö and Juventus-Chelsea.
