Dejan Kulusevski, the second Swede to score in the Champions League for Juventus after Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is Dejan Kulusevski.

Juventus won the Champions League by beating Zenit St Petersburg with a late header from Dejan Kulusevski.

With four minutes remaining, the substitute for Sweden was able to head in Mattia De Sciglio's cross via inside the far post.

It was one of two attempts on target by Massimiliano Allegri's team, Weston McKennie scoring a save.

Chelsea is three points behind Juve, who beat Malmo by 4-0 in Group H.

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Zczesny denied Claudinho a long-range shot, and Dmitriy Christyakov a header in the first period. However, he did not make a save after the break.

This victory was the Champions League's first consecutive away win in the group stages. Juventus won seven games in succession, surpassing six from Chelsea (2000-2004), and Manchester United (2009-10).

This was their 150th win at the Champions League or European Cup.
