Chelsea vs Dortmund – Betting Preview
On Tuesday, Borussia Dortmund will play Chelsea in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge with the goal of completing the job after winning the first leg 1-0.
Three weeks ago, the two teams played at Signal Iduna Park in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 match, and Karim Adeyemi’s amazing goal ended up being the deciding factor.
If Chelsea is unable to overcome the deficit and secure a crucial victory on Tuesday, their already awful season may get even worse. On Saturday against Leeds United, Graham Potter’s team recorded a remarkable victory. A six-game losing streak for the Blues was broken by Wesley Fofana’s goal.
A loss to Dortmund might be the end of Graham Potter’s managing tenure at Chelsea. He is under a lot of pressure. The Blues are in pretty bad form going into this matchup, having left the Champions League in the round of 16 four times since the 2014–15 season.
Chelsea has four clean sheets in their past six games at Stamford Bridge, but their pitiful goal record of only four goals from their last 10 games is just appalling. Fofana’s header against Leeds also broke a three-game streak without making the net tremble for Chelsea.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund is now on a run and has won each of their 10 games since the World Cup. With to goals from Marco Reus and Emre Can, they did well to humiliate RB Leipzig in their most recent Bundesliga game on Saturday.
Despite having more opportunities than Edin Terzic’s team, Leipzig was unable to take advantage of them. Dortmund and Bayern Munich are now equal on points for first place in the Bundesliga, separated only by goal differential.
In what may turn out to be a defining season for them, Dortmund will fancy their chances against Chelsea on Tuesday night and seek to gather even more momentum!
