Borussia won the first match in Dortmund thanks to a goal by Karim Adeyemi. This player was absent from Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. Coach Edin Terzic could not use the services of Grigor Copil either. Chelsea also had problems, as Thiago Silva suffered an injury in the last league match.

The hosts started strongly and ambitiously, but again fell short of effectiveness. Borussia had problems at the start, but thanks to Marco Reus they were able to take the lead. However, Kepa Arrizabalaga hit a fantastic free kick from the German.
Chelsea was messy, but it just gets better with time. First, Kai Havertz hit the post, then the same player scored, but the referee canceled the goal, because Raheem Sterling was offside a moment earlier. But at the end of the first half, the Englishman became the champion. Although he was lucky, his shot only stopped in the goal. The Blues were leading 1-0.
And after the break, they start attacking again. They were rewarded very quickly. After Ben Chilwell’s cross, Marius Wolf handballed the ball into his own penalty area. After analyzing the video assistant referee, the referee awarded 11. Havertz approached the ball and hit the post. Moments later, however, he had a chance to restart the game, as the other players ran into the penalty area with great speed. On the second attempt, the German scored better and could have enjoyed the goal.
Borussia fought until the last seconds, but could not hit the net. Chelsea is back and will play in the Champions League quarter-finals.
