Dortmund v Chelsea Prediction & Pick

Dortmund found a way to sneak out of Champions League group play thanks to the effort of Jude Bellingham. The 19-year-old racked up 4 goals and 1 assist on the stat sheet across six matches. Manager Edin Terzic is going to need more than just one player to step up to beat Chelsea, though.

Chelsea has been a fixture in the Champions League as of late, winning the title in 2020-21 and exiting in the quarterfinals in 2021-22. Raheem Sterling guided the Blues through the group stage with 2 goals and 2 assists, but this is a roster filled with experienced pros and talented playmakers.

Dortmund starts this matchup at home, so I expect an intense draw before Chelsea advances with a home win in March.

Final Score Prediction: Dortmund: 1 | Chelsea: 1

Dortmund vs Chelsea Best Bet

This is tough because Chelsea is an obvious favorite on paper. However, Dortmund knows that a home loss would put them in a disastrous position heading to Stamford Bridge. I expect Dortmund to feed off the crowd with an early goal and drop into a defensive strategy before Chelsea ties it up late.

Bet: Draw (+240)
