Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund prediction
On Tuesday night in London at the Stamford Bridge stadium, the local Chelsea hosts the German Borussia Dortmund.
This is one of the 1/8-final second leg matches in the Champions League that are expected with the greatest interest.
England conceded a narrow 0-1 loss 3 weeks ago on German soil.
Although they registered 19 scoring chances then, including 8 accurate shots.
But this is a result that is not insurmountable.
Especially since last weekend Graham Potter's players finally won - 1-0 against Leeds in the Premier League.
With this success, the streak of 6 games without a win for Chelsea ended , the last 3 of which were losses.
Although Graham Potter's coaching chair continues to wobble, he has taken a breather.
And with possible success today, the English specialist will certainly regain his position in front of the club management.
Borussia Dortmund is the team in the best current form in all of Europe - 10 consecutive victories in all competitions.
However, I think it will be difficult for them away at Stamford Bridge today.
Edin Terzic has focused his efforts on winning the Bundesliga title that has eluded them for more than 10 years.
And given the low results in recent Chelsea matches , I expect the Blues to win minimally.
Prediction for possible exact result: 1-0 or 2-0.
Chelsea broke a black streak
Chelsea are back to winning ways and will look to carry that into their home match against Borussia Dortmund.
The Premier League side suffered a 0-1 defeat in the first leg. After that, he recorded a two-game losing streak.
Ahead of the 1-0 win over Leeds this weekend.
Chelsea is having a very poor season
For Chelsea, the season did not go well and it was a difficult year.
The team has two wins in 12 games in 2023 (2-4-6).
And he managed to score only two goals in his last seven games .
Furthermore, the Blues have lost 6 of their last 11 games.
And today they need to win by at least one unanswered goal if they want to take things to at least extra time.
Chelsea will rely on the defense
Despite being weak in attack, the Lions did not allow many goals.
The 0-2 defeat at Tottenham remains the only time in the last eight games that they have conceded more than a goal.
They have actually kept 4 clean sheets in their last 8 games .
Borussia Dortmund are on the move
Borussia Dortmund are in great form.
Karim Adeyemi's superb goal in Germany has been the difference between these two teams so far.
And now the Bundesliga team enters this rematch directly after a 2-1 win over RB Leipzig.
It was their 10th win in a row . And it left them level on points with Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga table .
BVB will be looking to extend their good run.
Borussia Dortmund will be cautious
Dortmund have kept clean sheets three times in the last five games.
And also scored two or more goals in three of their last five games.
However, three of their last five meetings were under 2.5 goals .
In the Champions League, their only loss this season and in the last 8 games was in England.
When they went down 1-2 to Manchester City.
But the Black and Yellows have drawn three of their last four Champions League matches.
The top scorer from the first match, Karim Adeyemi, is injured. As well as his attacking colleague Yusufa Mukoko.
