JUVENTUS made Champions League history against Chelsea by scoring just TEN seconds into the second half.
Federico Chiesa, 23, thundered an effort past Edouard Mendy immediately after the restart – marking the fastest second-half goal EVER in the Champions League.
A simple long ball from Leonardo Bonucci was flicked on by the head of Adrien Rabiot, who found Federico Bernadeschi.
The Italian then slipped a lovely short pass into the path of Chiesa, who found the back of the net with an emphatic finish.
Mendy quickly fumed at his sluggish defenders in front of him as they failed to stop the Juventus attack.
And according to Opta, the goal was the quickest in the second half of a Champions League match since they started recording data in 2003-04.
Chiesa’s strike may be the quickest ever in any half of Champions League football.
Roy McKaay boasts the record for quickest goal after kick-off – scoring 10.1 seconds into a match between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in 2007.
