• Sterling and Kai Havertz Goals Enough To Beat Dortmund

Chelsea looked alive for the first time in months as they put in a performance with goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz enough to knock out in-form Borrusia Dortmund. The Blues recovered from their first leg defeat in Germany to book a spot in the quarter-finals of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

Despite Chelsea’s horrible form this year, The Blues were still considered favourites going into the with Stamford Bridge playing a huge part, and the fans did not disappoint. The support was massive from kick off, as many knew a loss for Chelsea means their season is effectively over.

Chelsea started the game well with an early chance falling to Raheem Sterling who found himself one-on-one with the Dortmund’s overlapping goalkeeper, however the former Manchester City star could not do much with his early chance.

Kai Havertz and João Félix also looked lively early on in the game, with some half chances falling to the German. He almost scored with a sharp low volley that struck the post, before being denied by an offside call after beautifully curling the ball into the net following a Raheem Sterling effort.

Dutch referee Danny Makkelie awarded Chelsea a penalty early on in the second half as the busy Ben Chilwell once again crossed into the box, but this time, Marius Wolf’s hands were in the way.
