Chelsea’s winless streak was extended to four matches (D3) after they were defeated 1-0 by an informed Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash at the Signal Iduna Park last night.
After a dull first half that ended in a barren draw, both teams resumed the second half in electrifying form as they both looked for a winner. The hosts, however, would score the game-winning goal in the 63rd minute, thanks to Karim Adeyemi’s spectacular solo goal following a quick transition.

The visitors rallied in the final half hour, but Dortmund’s defense held firm to seal a 1-0 win, and they will head to their rematch at Stamford Bridge on March 7th with a narrow advantage.
Following the game, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure with their manager, Graham Potter, with many stating that he isn’t the right man for the job and that he should be fired before it’s too late, as the club faces a real possibility of failing to qualify for European competitions next season. Since taking over at the club, the former Brighton manager has struggled to get off to a good start.
