Double Chance: Dortmund to Win or Draw

Although Chelsea finally notched a win this weekend over Leeds in the Premier League, the team is still in poor form and struggling. On the other hand, Dortmund is in great form and on an eight-game winning streak in Bundesliga at the moment.

All things considered, our first Chelsea vs Dortmund prediction is for the guests to avoid a loss in this game, which would take them through to the quarter-finals after winning the first leg 1-0.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We only saw one goal in the first leg between these two teams, but we can see that changing in the second leg, especially since Chelsea will have to chase a win if they want to get to the next stage.

That should leave a lot of room on offense to Dortmund as well, so our second Chelsea vs Dortmund prediction is for both teams to score in the game as they will both fight to score and that should mean an open game.

Chelsea – Dortmund Preview – Latest Form, Team News, and Potential Lineups

This should be a very close and exciting duel, so let's check both teams out in more detail ahead of the first leg, including what we expect to see when it comes to Chelsea vs Dortmund lineups.

Chelsea

Although Chelsea has struggled for much of the season in Premier League, they were at least very good in Champions League. The Blues finished the group stages as the top team in Group E, ahead of AC Milan, Salzburg, and Dinamo Zagreb. However, the team has been in poor form lately all around, but on the bright side, they enter the second leg against Dortmund after notching a win in Premier League over the weekend, even if it was a minimal win over Leeds at home.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is also dealing with a lot of squad issues. Armando Broja, Cesar Azpilicueta, Edouard Mendy, and Thiago Silva are all out with injuries, while N'Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, and Reece James are questionable. Also, Mason Mount will miss the game through suspension.

Chelsea Predicted Lineup:

Kepa – Chalobah, Koulibaly, Fofana – James, Kovacic, Fernandez, Chilwell – Sterling, Havertz, Felix

Dortmund

The first half of the season has been a solid one for Borussia Dortmund, but it seems that things are clicking on all cylinders for the team right now. After all, Dortmund won eight games in a row in Bundesliga and they are in a tight race for the title with Bayern Munich. Also, the team enters the second leg of Champions League duel with Chelsea with a one-goal advantage and a good chance to reach quarter-finals.

When it comes to team news, Youssoufa Moukoko, Mateu Morey, Donyell Malen, Abdoulaye Kamara, and Julien Duranville are out with injuries, while Gregor Kobel, the team's first-choice goalkeeper, is questionable. Also, Julian Ryerson is suspended for this game.

Dortmund Predicted Lineup:

Meyer – Wolf, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro – Ozcan, Can, Bellingham – Brandt, Haller, Reus

Player to Watch: Jude Bellingham

Although he is still just nineteen years old, Jude Bellingham is already one of the biggest names in European football, especially after his performances for England at the World Cup in Qatar, where he was one of the main players for the Three Lions.

When it comes to club performances, Bellingham is the top goalscorer for Dortmund in Champions League this season, even though is a midfielder. The youngster managed to score four goals and add one assists, so he is the one to watch against Chelsea.
