Chelsea’s dramatic Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night was one of the most thrilling games of the season. The Blues came from behind to win 2-0 in their Round of 16 match at Stamford Bridge, with Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz scoring the goals for the hosts.
The result was a huge relief for Chelsea manager Graham Potter, whose job had been in jeopardy after his side’s poor form of late. But their performance against Dortmund showed their true quality and proved they still have a chance of making the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The atmosphere at Stamford Bridge was electric, with the Chelsea supporters urging their side on throughout the match. The Blues started the game brightly and were unfortunate not to take the lead in the first half.
Sterling eventually broke the deadlock in the second half, firing home a low shot from the edge of the box. And Havertz doubled the lead from the penalty spot, after his first effort was saved but the referee ordered it to be retaken due to an infringement in the area.
The result sent Chelsea through to the quarter-finals, and Potter’s stock is now on the rise again. The Blues have shown their resilience and character in recent weeks, and if they can continue to perform like this in the Champions League, then they will have a great chance of lifting the trophy this season.
It was a memorable night for Chelsea, and one that will surely live long in the memory of their supporters. Potter and his players deserve huge credit for their performance against Dortmund, and they will now be hoping to make even more progress in the competition.
