Chelsea host Dortmund in their return leg, and they will look to erase a one-goal deficit from the first leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 matches.
Chelsea has had a complicated season as they have had poor performances since sacking Tuchel but can't afford to sack Graham Potter, as it will signal indecision from the new owner and damage his reputation. Just to remind you of how difficult it has been for Graham Potter's side to score goals in recent weeks, the goal which secured the victory was only their second in their last seven games in all competitions.
Dortmund is really really doing well, way beyond expectations, especially on the defensive part of things. In previous seasons they hardly keep clean sheets or defend under intense pressure, but they have displayed incredible defensive improvements this season.They will go into this game full of confidence, having won all of their ten games across all competitions in 2023. Despite heading into the game with one of the best form in Europe's top five leagues at the moment, the visitors would be a bit worried ahead of this game as they have lost each of their last five clashes with English sides on the road.
Chelsea are currently struggling with their form, they rarely fail to impress in home games in the Champions League. All the last four games of Dortmund in this competition ended with less than 2.5 goals, so we aren’t expecting Tuesday’s game to be different.
Best Tip for Chelsea - Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League in my opinion is Under 2.5 goals.
