Chelesea manager Roberto Di Matteo is reportedly going to award Oscar with his first start for Chelsea FC this evening, as Chelsea take on Juventus in the UEFA Champions League. According to Jamie Reid:

Reid has the starting lineup and bench for us as well:

That's big, big news for Oscar, and it's big for Chelsea fans as well. After giving Ryan Bertrand the surprising start in last season's Champions League final, RDM is again surprising us by testing Oscar against a tough opponent. We'll have the game thread up for you shortly, but for now feel free to discuss the Oscar news.
