Chelsea vs Dortmund LIVE SCORE: Dortmund bus DELAYED, Reece James STARTS in make-or-break Champions League last-16 tie


Good evening and welcome to Stamford Bridge

Welcome to SunSport’s live blog for tonight’s huge Champions League fixture.

Chelsea go into this second leg tie 1-0 down on aggregate after a Karmin Adeyemi goal giving Dortmund the advantage in the first leg.

Graham Potter got his first win in seven on Saturday with a 1-0 win against Leeds.

A win tonight and qualification for the Champions League quarter-final could play a huge factor in Potter’s future at the club.

The Blue’s only hope of qualifying for next season’s UCL is by winning this year’s competition, making tonight’s game all the more important.

They currently sit 10th in the Premier League table, 11 points off Spurs in fourth.

Champions League qualification is crucial for Chelsea’s recruitment in the summer, as their top targets will all want to play in Europe’s elite competition.

Dortmund are neck and neck at the top with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga after winning their last 9 in the league.

A narrow 2-1 win against RB Leipzig on Friday keeps them within touching distance of top spot.

Stopping Dortmund won’t be easy for Chelsea, but the green shoots from Saturday’s win over Leeds will give the Blues belief of progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals.

However, the need to go out on the front foot could leave Potter’s side vulnerable on the counter-attack, and an early Dortmund goal would leave them with a mountain to climb.
