The Graham Potter side fought valiantly at Stamford Bridge to send Dortmund out of the Champions League, and they succeeded by simply giving it their all.

Chelsea overcame the first-leg deficit to eliminate Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16, and Kai Havertz’s initially missed penalty was crucial in completing the comeback.

After the Blues managed to level the scores courtesy of a goal from Raheem Sterling in the first half, they went ahead to grab the lead thanks to a VAR assist, giving Havertz a second opportunity to retake his penalty.

This time, he made no mistakes from the same spot. They have now advanced to the quarterfinals after finishing off with a significant victory that was well deserved.

They have already advanced to the quarterfinals after finishing us off with a significant victory that was well deserved.

Stamford Bridge went loud singing for Graham Potter as he salutes them by striking the air with his hand.

This is the biggest victory of his career as manager since he took over after Thomas Tuchel, who is renowned for leading this team to a stunning overwhelming victory in this very competition.

The Blues will now be praying for tremendous luck to smile twice upon them. On the other hand, Dortmund found it to be a bitter pill to swallow.

Yet, they cheered for their away supporters, who continued to create a chorus of noise in the corner while the rest of the stadium erupted in celebration as though they had won a championship.

Before they traveled to Stamford Bridge, Borussia Dortmund had the best record among the top five leagues in Europe as the best in-form side.

Before today, they had won 11 consecutive competitive games.

They suffered their first defeat of 2023 at the hands of Chelsea, who also held them scoreless for the first time in almost 4 months.

Although it was not meant to be for them, they will rebuild and concentrate on domestic fixtures now.

Both teams have a game on Saturday. While Chelsea take on Leicester in the Premier League, Dortmund will be taking on Schalke.
