Chelsea’s hopes of winning the title this season could be dashed in a life-or-death match against Borussia Dortmund tonight.
The Blues are 1-0 down in the Champions League round of 16 heading into the second leg but may be encouraged by a 1-0 win over Leeds at the weekend.
The result eased the ever-increasing pressure on Graham Potter as he hopes his side can pull off a run and progress to the quarter-finals.
Chelsea sit tenth in the Premier League, 11 points adrift of the top four, meaning victory in this year’s Champions League could represent their best chance of qualifying for UEFA’s inaugural competition next season.
But they still have work to do after Karim Adeyemi’s goal was enough for Dortmund to seal victory as the two sides met in the first leg.
BVB arrive in West London after 11 wins but Jude Bellingham and company have lost their last five Champions League games away to English clubs.
