Goal-laden first leg on the cards?

Borussia Dortmund take on Chelsea at Westfalenstadion on Wednesday evening, the desperately out-of-form Blues will be hanging their hopes of the season on a good run in the Champions League, and the tie could be very important for Graham Potter’s future in the dugout.

Todd Boehly did appear to be aiming for a change of approach in hiring Graham Potter, bringing in a project-style manager in the hope that they can build something similar to what we have seen at Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal this season.

Dortmund have been very up and down on the pitch this season, but are only three points off of first-placed Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, and will fancy their chances of beating vulnerable Chelsea on their home patch.


Abdoulaye Kamara, Marius Wolf, Mateu Morey, Tom Rothe and Youssoufa Moukoko are unavailable through injury for the hosts, while Chelsea will be without: Armando Broja, Christian Pulisic, Denis Zakaria, Edouard Mendy, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Raheem Sterling and Wesley Fofana.

The Blues have won just two of 13 in the Premier League, and if BVB can reach the levels of their performance in the group stages against Manchester City, they will have a great chance to get ahead in the tie.

Dortmund have only lost once in the league at home this season, and it does feel like Chelsea’s most likely route through in this tie, is to take a draw or a one-goal defeat back to Stamford Bridge.

This will be a welcome distraction for the Chelsea squad, with their European hopes slipping away in the Premier League, but it is crucial that Potter keeps his control amidst pressure from supporters.


I am most comfortable backing goals in this encounter, first legs can be cagey, but that feels unlikely with a team like Dortmund, and Chelsea should have the firepower to get on the scoresheet.

  • Dortmund have scored in nine of ten.

  • Dortmund have conceded in seven of ten.

  • Dortmund have seen both teams score in six of ten.

  • Dortmund have seen over 2.5 goals in six of ten.

  • Chelsea have scored in five of ten.

  • Chelsea have conceded in six of ten.

  • Chelsea have seen both teams score in three of ten.

  • Chelsea have seen over 2.5 goals in two of ten.
