Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today
Chelsea host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League tonight desperate for a comeback win.
A 1-0 defeat in Germany last month sets up this last-16 second-leg clash as a huge moment in both the Blues’ season and the embattled Graham Potter’s term in charge.
Beating Leeds at the weekend does, at least, send Chelsea into the tie with a bit of confidence but Dortmund are on an 11-game winning run that has made them favourites to qualify for the quarter-finals.
