Dortmund – Chelsea – Champions League Review
Borussia Dortmund hosts Chelsea at the Signal Iduna Park in a match from the 1/8-finals of the Champions League. That’s a first leg in the tie between these two sides. Stay with us and our free soccer bets for today.
Borussia Dortmund will try to hurt Chelsea in a moment when the English team is going through a transition season. The Blues’ new manager Graham Potter still tries to find the best formula for the club, but he’s facing some trouble. In England Chelsea are in the middle of the league and they have serious difficulties to win their matches.
Meanwhile Dortmund are enjoying a run of five consecutive wins in all competitions at the moment. Edin Terzic’ team is in a fine shape lately and you can see it from their performances. The big news for Dortmund is the return of the influential striker Sebastian Haller who recovered from cancer. The Ivorian striker already scored his first goal for the club.
Like we said, Chelsea are in transition right now. The club spent a lot of money for new players, but they will need more time to gel and build a competitive team. In their last five matches in all competitions Chelsea won just one – against Crystal Palace in the league.
The manager Graham Potter will have to decide what kind of a line-up to use against Borussia Dortmund. The January signing Enzo Fernandez already looks very important in midfield while players like Mason Mount, Mykhailo Mudryk, Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling will have to take responsibility in attack. Meanwhile Thiago Silva remains a key figure in the defense despite being 38-years old.
That’s the free soccer bets for today for the Champions League 1/8-finals first leg between Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea. We expect a great game at the Signal Iduna Park. Let’s hope we won’t be disappointed!
