Dortmund vs Chelsea: Champions League previewGraham Potter’s side have won just two of their past 13 Premier League matches, so will hope a change in competition brings a change in form as they look for a much-needed boost. The Blues lifted the trophy in 2021, and will need to do so again in June if they are to win any silverware this season. Dortmund drew with Manchester City at home in the group stage and were narrowly beaten at the Etihad, so will fancy their chances of causing a struggling Chelsea side plenty of problems. Date, kick-off time and venueBorussia Dortmund vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. Signal Iduna Park (Westfalenstadion) will host the match. Where to watch Borussia Dortmund vs ChelseaTV channel: In the UK, the match will be televised live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate, with coverage starting at 7pm.
Cancer-beating ex-West Ham star Sebastien Haller is likely to step in in the Germany star's place. Chelsea will be hoping to put an end to a wretched run of two wins in 13 games, with goals proving the main issue for Potter. On-loan Atletico Madrid man Joao Felix opened his account at West Ham and some incisive attacking play will be required of him and £97million-man Mykhailo Mudryk. It remains to be seen whether Marc Cucurella will remain in the Chelsea side after getting booed off by his own fans at West Ham. England international Ben Chilwell is back fit and could provide an alternative option at left-back.
Otherwise there should not be too many surprises in the team selection, with Jude Bellingham partnering Marco Reus and Emre Can in midfield, and Julian Brandt looking to continue his strong form. There will be no Dortmund return for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he was left out of Chelsea’s Champions League squad, with Benoit Badiashile also failing to make the cut. Kalidou Koulibaly could partner Thiago Silva at the back as a result, while Raheem Sterling is a doubt after missing the draw with West Ham due to a knock. Borussia Dortmund va Chelsea predictionGoals remain a problem for Graham Potter’s side despite the amount of money spent on attacking talent, and they now come up against a Dortmund side that have won all five of their Bundesliga games since the World Cup. While there were signs of improvement from Chelsea against West Ham, this is a big step up and they are likely to head back to England trailing in the tie.
And for Chelsea, the Premier League's most expensive ever signing Enzo Fernandez will be looking to show why the Blues splashed out £107m on him. In contrast to mid-table Chelsea, Dortmund are still very much in their domestic title race. They sit three points behind leaders Bayern and two behind surprise package Union Berlin. In the Dortmund midfield, the youth of Bellingham is set to be partnered by veteran and club legend Marco Reus as well as ex-Liverpool star Emre Can. Up front, Chelsea will not have to worry about wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko as he has been ruled out for up to two months with an ankle injury.
