LONDON – Chelsea have advanced to the quarter-finals of the 2022/2023 Champions League. The Blues escaped dramatically after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the second leg of the round of 16.
Chelsea host Dortmund at Stamford Bridge, Wednesday (8/3/2023) under pressure. Because, during the first meeting at Signal Iduna Park, the Premier League envoy fell 0-1.
This means that Chelsea must win at least 2-0 in the second meeting in order to advance to the quarter-finals directly. That mission can be fulfilled.
The contribution of Raheem Sterling (43) and a Kai Havertz penalty (53) allowed Chelsea to escape the eye of a needle. Because, they came back winning 2-1 on aggregate.
Chelsea’s first goal at home was born in the 43rd minute with a pretty beautiful process.
After receiving a sweet pass, Sterling fired a straight shot that went over the goal. It was good teamwork.
After the break, Chelsea scored their second goal in the 53rd minute through the white point. Havertz made the home fans cheer.
The goal came after Havertz tricked the Dortmund keeper into going the wrong way. He then put the ball into the bottom right corner of the goal.
In fact, in the first penalty, Havertz failed to score a goal because the ball hit the post. Luckily, the referee ordered the penalty to be repeated.
