Chelsea vs Dortmund Prediction & Pick

It was an unlucky effort for Chelsea when they fell short against Dortmund in the first leg on Feb. 15. The Blues tallied an impressive 21 shots (8 on goal), but finished with nothing to show for it. They held 53% of the possession and tallied 10 corners compared to Dortmund's five as well.

Nevertheless, Dortmund relied on its defense to win and will need to do so again to advance on Tuesday as the crowd at Stamford Bridge will not be on its side. The Borussians own a perfect 10-0-0 record (W-D-L) across their last 10 matches in all competition and have been steamrolling teams.

Intensity is going to be at an all-time high in this one and I expect Dortmund to advance by pulling off a road draw.

Final Score Prediction: Chelsea: 1 | Dortmund: 1

Chelsea vs Dortmund Best Bet

Chelsea is going to do whatever it can to win this game and the home crowd should help it find the back of the net early on. However, the Blues have scored a total of just 2 goals in their last seven matches. Dortmund has not been held without a goal since November, so take the value in a draw.

Bet: Draw (+270)
