Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund decide this Tuesday (7) at 5 pm (Brasília time) at Stamford Bridge stadium, in London, for the second clash of the Champions League round of 16. As they won the first leg by 1-0, the team commanded by Edin Terzic plays for a tie to advance to the quarterfinals.
Borussia Dortmund vs Chelsea lineup
In the dispute for the Bundesliga title, Borussia Dortmundo arrives for the game later with morale at an all-time high. At the weekend, they beat RB Leipzig by 2-1 and remain close to the leader. In London, the German team wants to maintain its invincibility in 2023. So far, there are 10 consecutive victories.
In the Champions League group stage, they finished second in group C with nine points. In all, there were two wins, three draws and one defeat. Despite favoritism, there is respect on both sides.
“They have a fantastic run and consistently win their games,” Chelsea manager Graham Potter said of BVB in the afternoon. Edin Terzic responded a few hours later: “The standings don’t show what they are capable of. They didn’t score the points they deserved.”
“We want to take advantage of the performances of the last few weeks and know which topics we need to improve in order to qualify for the next phase”, said Terzic, in view of his own team. “Only if we are willing to support each other at every stage of the game do we have a huge chance of being among the eight most successful teams in Europe this season.”
Dortmund’s likely lineup against Chelsea is as follows: Meyer; Wolf, Sule, Schlotterbeck and Guerreiro; Ozcan, Can and Bellingham; Brandt, Haller and Reus.
