The decisive moment, the first multi-goal in 2023… Chelsea reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League

Chelsea defeated Borussia Dortmund (Germany) 2-0 in the home game of the 2022-2023 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League round of 16 second leg held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 8th (Korean time). Although they lost 0-1 in the first leg of the away game, they overturned the game 2-1 in total in the first and second leg and advanced to the quarterfinals.

Chelsea changed the first leg and roster largely due to Chiagu Silva’s injury. The average age of the 11 players selected for the second game is 25 years and 255 days. It is the second-youngest Champions League starter in the club’s history. The first place was 25 years and 236 days in the second leg of the round of 16 against Bayern Munich (Germany) in the 2019-2020 season.메이저사이트

In the 43rd minute of the first half, the long-awaited opening goal and the balancing goal in the round of 16 broke. Earlier, in the 38th minute of the first half, Kai Havertz’s goal was offside after VAR, but this time Raheem Sterling perfectly finished Ben Chilwell’s pass into the goal.

In the 8th minute of the second half, an additional goal was scored. Havertz’s penalty kick hit the post, but another chance was given as the players entered the penalty box first before the kick. Havertz opened the Dortmund goal on his second chance.

Chelsea, in particular, have come out of a long slump.

2 wins in a row following the 26th round of the Premier League with Leeds United on the 5th. It is the first two wins in a row since October last year. It was also the first multi-goal recorded in the 13th game in 2023.

Chelsea manager Graham Porter said: “To be honest, I don’t know how it feels. A lot of emotions come and go. The players did a good job, they created good chances. Everyone was great. The atmosphere in the locker room was the best. It means a lot,” he said.
