            Chelsea vs. Dortmund Prediction, Tips & Stats

            For our Chelsea vs. Dortmund prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw.

            Chelsea face a potentially season defining game in the Champions League this week as they face Borussia Dortmund at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.

            Chelsea enter this game approaching a potentially pivotal moment in their season with pressure on manager Graham Potter almost at boiling point and any hope of achieving anything meaningful this season resting on this encounter.

            Chelsea have been in abysmal form under Potter of late and enter this game having won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions.

            That win did, though, come in their most recent game as they beat Leeds United 1-0 at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

            While unconvincing, the win was sorely needed and at least takes a small amount of pressure off Potter and his side ahead of a huge game in their season.

            Their record at home hasn't been too bad of late having won two, drawn one and lost one of their last four games at Stamford Bridge, but they simply aren't scoring enough goals having scored just three times in their last four home games and just twice in their last five games overall.

            Wesley Fofana was the man on the scoresheet at the weekend against Leeds and Potter will be delighted to be able to rely on his services once more as after he made his first start for the club since October.

            All in all, this game could not be any bigger for Graham Potter and Chelsea and with just a one goal deficit to overcome a place in the Champions League quarterfinals is by no means out of reach. It will likely have to be a season best performance, though, as they face one of Europe's most in form sides.

            Borussia Dortmund have been on a roll since the return of competitive football following the World Cup break as they enter this match having won ten consecutive matches in all competitions.

            The Yellow Submarine seem to have gone up a level following the long winter break as they now find themselves level on points with leaders Bayern in the Bundesliga.

            Most recently, Dortmund claimed a huge win against 4th place RB Leipzig in a 2-1 victory at home on Friday night.

            Manager Edin Terzic will be pleased with how his side's goals are being evenly dispersed between his players, with the club's last ten goals being scored by six different players.

            Having won each of their last five away games on the bounce, Dortmund have conceded just two goals in that period and will almost certainly give Chelsea the game of their life here.

            Given the respective form of the two sides Dortmund are the clear favourites to progress to the next round and will have seen nothing in Chelsea's win over Leeds this weekend to make their confidence waver.

            Chelsea Team News

            Edouard Mendy, Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, N'Golo Kante, Armando Broja and Mason Mount are all out for The Blues here, but Reece James and Christian Pulisic should both be fit enough to feature.

            Graham Potter could persist with the 3-4-3 formation that was used in the win against Leeds at the weekend.

            Dortmund Team News

            Julian Ryerson is unavailable through suspension, while Dortmund will be without as many as six first team players through injury including Youssoufa Moukoko, Donyell Malen and first leg match winner Karim Adeyemi.

            Raphael Guerreiro will likely start in place of Ryerson, but Edin Terzic will otherwise likely name the same XI that started the win over RB Leipzig on Friday.
