Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund predictions and betting tips on March 7, 2023
On March 7, Stamford Bridge (London) will host the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, in which Chelsea will compete with Borussia Dortmund. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team is becoming one of the main disappointments of the current season. The replacement of the mentor was an attempt to change the situation. Still, after the higher mentioned manipulation (Tuchel was replaced by Potter) there was only a short-term “enlightenment”, during which the British team managed to overcome the quartet of the Champions League group. Then, everything finally went wrong, and, despite the hundreds of millions that Boehly had paid for newcomers in January, the giant lost even to Southampton, which was in the last place of the Premier League standings. At the same time, “the Aristocrats” often conceded despite the clear advantage in the game. But who is to blame for Mudryk and the company that they do not use a lot of chances? The same was in Germany: the guests were no worse, but the battle resulted in a 0-1 defeat.
The club is the vice-champion of Germany, but, despite this fact, the cooperation with Marco Rose was interrupted after a year of his work. The management returned Terzić, who sensibly showed himself in the 2020/2021 season. Nevertheless, the starting, autumn segment of the tournament was pretty controversial – and it was the passage to the play-offs of the Champions League that became almost the brightest moment for the team, even with all the reservations about the weakness of the group. And after a pause, “the Black and Yellows” were able to noticeably add in the game –a powerful series of 100% results, when all matches were won in all tournaments, proves it in the best way. At the same time, the German grandee managed to “squeeze” the victory in the match with Chelsea in the Champions League. The only goal was scored in the counterattack, when no one could stop Adeyemi in his spurt in the 63rd minute of the battle.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Being regulars of the Champions League, the British team and its German opponent had not got any head-to-head matches until the previous month.
Bookmakers consider Chelsea to be the favourite in the London match. Still, it fails so much that it is worth paying attention to the proposal “Double chance: Borussia Dortmund will not lose” in the away match (odd: 2.01).
