FT: Chelsea 2-0 Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea have found the two goals required and they go through. Dortmund, the form team in Europe, are out.

Will he score this time?

Havertz has the ball in his hands again.

There are players in the box when Havertz takes the penalty and Chelsea will have a second bite of the cherry.

The German forward puts Meyer the wrong way.

The penalty is going to be RETAKEN!

Havertz misses his penalty and it's the second time he hits the post tonight.


Dortmund are still protesting. Havertz has the ball in his hand.

They have been the better team and won't have wanted that half-time whistle.

HT: Chelsea 1-0 Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea lead 1-0 on the night. It's 1-1 on aggregate and it's going to be a big second half.

Chelsea 1-0 Dortmund

Joao Félix has been very good so far. His latest cross is cleared away.

Sterling offside

Goal disallowed.

Sterling is through on goal... His effort is saved and falls to Havertz, who smashes it in off the bar from 20 yards. Sterling was offside in the build-up.


But he's offside!

Can wins the header and Reyna is in the right place to clear it on the edge of the box.

Joao Félix picks it up between the lines. His low shot is deflected and goes out for a corner.


The ball falls to the Croatian 25 yards from goal. He sends his volley well wide. It has dropped from the heavens and it's also a tough one to keep down.

Tonight is the first time Dortmund have played at Stamford Bridge.

Kepa comes off his line to claim the cross. It's still goalless at the Bridge.

Havertz fouls Schlotterbeck. BVB have a free.

James' cross from the right falls to Havertz, and his effort is just a whisker away.

Possession stats:

Chelsea - 29%

Dortmund - 71%

Reyna squares it across the 6-yard box but no-one is there to tap in. It's a super cross from the American attacker.

Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands is tonight's referee. Makkelie, 40, is a police officer from Willemstad in the Netherlands and has been a FIFA-listed referee since 2011.

The ball is fed into Haller but Koulibaly reads it well to rob it. Emre Can then fouls Joao Félix.

Dortmund have won their last five games away from home. It remains 0-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Dortmund have scored almost twice the amount of goals Chelsea have scored this season.

Chelsea clear Dortmund's corner from the left.


It's a fine save from Kepa to keep out the curling free.

Dortmund change

There's the confirmation of that earlier change.

BVB are second in the Bundesliga with 49 points, tied with the leaders, Bayern, who have a better goal difference.

They will be looking to use the momentum from the domestic competitions and the 1-0 advantage from the first leg to get to the next round.

Havertz is straight through on goal. Joao Félix plays him. Havertz gets a shove, falls over, and sends his effort wide.

US international Gio Reyna is on to replace Julian Brandt, who looks like he is suffering from a hamstring problem.

Julian Brandt is down and it looks like Gio Reyna will replace him. That will be a major blow for Dortmund.

The Dortmund fans are making all the noise here.

The German side lead 1-0 from the first leg.

Will Dortmund be strong enough to see it through?

Both sides are playing in their home strips. Chelsea are playing from right to left as we watch it.

Borussia Dortmund get us underway!

It's a huge night for Chelsea and for Graham Potter. The Chelsea boss has made four changes from the first leg.

Dortmund are the form side in Europe right now, and are still unbeaten in 2023.

Chelsea haven't scored more than one goal since the end of December. Will tonight be the night?

Here come the teams!

Adeyemi's first-leg wondergoal

This is the goal that has Dortmund in front going into tonight's return leg.

Dortmund unbeaten in 2023

Dortmund are unbeaten in 2023 and kept the pressure on leaders Bayern Munich by beating RB Leipzig 2-1 on Friday. 

Bayern are top of the Bundesliga on goal difference - as they sit on 49 points - the same number of points as Dortmund.

Adeyemi the first-leg hero

Chelsea had their chances to score in the first leg in Germany but couldn't take them. Potter's side will believe they can still go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Karim Adeyemi's 63rd-minute goal was superb. He ran from inside his own half and then beat Enzo and Kepa to slot it home and give the home side the lead. The Germany international will miss tonight's match through injury.

Dortmund have a 1-0 lead going into the second leg at Stamford Bridge. It's all set up to be a cracking European tie.

Chelsea win ahead of Dortmund clash

Chelsea welcome Borussia Dortmund to London on Tuesday for their last-16 Champions League second-leg tie.

The first leg saw the Bundesliga side win 1-0 thanks to an effort from Karim Adeyemi. 

Potter’s side picked up a much-needed three points in the Premier League at the weekend when centre-back Wesley Fofana scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over Leeds United.

Potter under pressure

It's a huge night for Chelsea and their head coach Graham Potter. Many would argue he needs time but failure to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League with over €600m invested in new transfers would only pile the pressure on the former Brighton boss.

Kickoff approaches

Kickoff at Stamford Bridge gets underway in just over two hours' time. We'll have all the latest for you from London.
