As Chelsea prepares to travel to Germany to play Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 matchup, manager Graham Potter will be hoping his team can rediscover some form. Despite having 72 percent of the ball, Chelsea only mustered four attempts that were on goal, and for lengthy stretches of the game, the Hammers appeared to be in control. Potter is under pressure since Chelsea spent more than £300 million to boost his team during the January transfer window. With a seven-game winning streak, Edin Teredzic's Dortmund team is cruising this year. They defeated Werder Bremen on Saturday to climb to third place in the Bundesliga and close the gap on Bayern Munich at the top of the standings to three points.

The match between Dortmund and Chelsea will begin at 8 p.m. on February 15, 2023.
