Chelsea confront Dortmund for ticket to Champions League q-final

Going to Stamford Bridge with a slim 1-0 lead to guard, German side Borussia Dortmund are keen to finish the job in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League affair with Chelsea on Wednesday.

Karim Adeyemi’s sensational solo winner settled a keen fixture at the Westfalenstadion three weeks ago, as Blues manager Graham Potter goes in search of a priceless win that may just buy him some more time in the dugout.

Whether Adeyemi’s stunning winner or his backflip celebration was more impressive is another debate entirely, but the German starlet’s crucial contribution in the first leg has Dortmund just 90 minutes away from putting another dampener on Chelsea’s miserable 2023.

With the Blues’ clashes against Leeds and Dortmund said to be pivotal to Graham Potter’s future, he can get back into the good books of the powers-that-be by turning their last-16 tie around, but exits at this stage are not a novelty to the West London giants.



The English capital is not kind to BVB either, as they have lost their last five European battles in London since beating Arsenal 2-1 in 2013, but the last time that they won both legs of a Champions League knockout tie in 1996-97, Dortmund ended up lifting the trophy aloft.
