Eight teams have now qualified for the quarterfinals of Europe's illustrious tournament, sealing their place in the round of 16 of the 2022–23 Champions League season. In 16 games, there were no fewer than 38 goals tallied, with Premier League Champions Manchester City scoring the most (8).
Seeing a team recover from a first-leg deficit to qualify after a brilliant second-leg turnaround is one of the most entertaining aspects of this tournament. However, only one squad was able to perform a second leg comeback in the recently finished round.
West London's Blue team needed to come back in the second match at Stamford Bridge after losing 1-0 at Signal Iduna Park to advance to the round of eight.
After a string of poor results and Chelsea's significant transfer expenditure, Potter was under a great deal of pressure. However, he is hoping that the manner of his team's performance and their advancement into the latter stages of Europe's premier competition will bring some calm and stability to Stamford Bridge. Even though Chelsea missed a number of excellent chances before Raheem Sterling scored the game-winning goal in the 44th minute, they completely deserved to win.
Disputedly, eight minutes after the half, Dortmund scored from the penalty spot to end the match and reverse the score of 1-0 from the first game. The German team was incensed when a VAR review found Marius Wolf guilty of handball following a Ben Chilwell cross, and their sense of injustice increased when Kai Havertz's penalty shot hit the post only for a re-take to be mandated. Chelsea won 2-0, Havertz made no errors this time, and they advanced to the round of eight.
Who will Chelsea's quarterfinal opponent be? Comment in the section below and follow me. Thankyou.
