Why Chelsea is a good bet versus Dortmund

In their last 5, Chelsea has played decent soccer. The Blues have a single win in the last 5. But they also have a single loss.

Chelsea has drawn in 3 straight. No doubt, Thomas Tuchel has been gearing his squad up for this match. The Blues have no chance of winning the Premier. But Chelsea can win the Champions League. So we should expect a massive effort.

Why Dortmund is a good bet versus Chelsea

The German League home team is on fire. Dortmund has won 5 straight. No win impressed as much as the victory over Freiburg.

Not only did Dortmund blast Freiburg, but the Bundesliga squad followed up the blasting with a 2-1 victory over Bochum and an 0-2 win against Werder. Dortmund’s success can be traced to a team effort philosophy. Unlike last season, where Dortmund leaned on one of the top strikers in the world, Erling Haaland, Dortmund has no true striker number one.

• W – 1-2 vs. VfL Bochum
• W – 5-1 vs. SC Freiburg
• W – 0-2 vs. Bayer Leverkusen
• W – 1-2 vs. Mainz

Dortmund Expected Starting Lineup

• Kobel

Final Betting Analysis: Chelsea at Dortmund

The win over Freiburg is the perfect example of Dortmund’s new attack. Five different players scored the 5 goals versus Freiburg.

At the 25th minute, Nico Schlotterbeck scored. Karim Adeyemi followed up with a goal at minute 48. Then in minute 51, Sebastian Haller got a goal. Julian Brandt scored at minute 69. Giovanni Reyna kicked the ball into the net at minute 82. Dortmund plays a more open style of attack where various players have the greenlight.

The style should give Chelsea fits because this year’s Blues side has yet to gel. Players like Jao Felix, Kai Havertz, and Mason Mount suggest the Blues will overmatch Dortmund. But that’s won’t be the case. Until Chelsea plays as a cohesive unit, they will lose to teams like Dortmund.

Champions League Pick: Dortmund +147
