Round of 16 - the second leg
The second leg of the Champions League round of 16 kicks off tonight (Tuesday) with Chelsea hosting Dortmund at Stamford Bridge and trying to string together a second straight win in all competitions - something that hasn't happened since October.
The Blues lost 1-0 in the first leg in Germany, so they must win to keep a chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals for the third time in a row.
After the game in Dortmund was the first ever between the teams, the Germans now want to break a streak of five losses in Champions League games on English soil.
They will also try to complete a Champions Knockout double for the first time since their winning season in 1997.
As the pressure on coach Graham Potter increased, this time too he had to manage without a significant number of players.
Mason Mount is yellow, Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Edouard Mendy are injured, and the stopper Benoit Badiashil is not registered for the factory.
Three players returned to training with the team - Reece James returned straight to the lineup, Christian Pulisic was included in the squad, while Angolo Kante, who has not played since August, will wait upon returning to the courts.
On the other side, Dortmund hope to continue their run after winning all ten games since returning from the World Cup break.
Goalkeeper Gregor Koval complained of pain just before the 1:2 draw against Leipzig on Friday and did not play, and this time he is also ineligible, so Alexander Meier stood between the posts.
Donaille Mullen made the flight despite ankle problems and is on the bench, while those missing are Yusuf Mokoko and Karim Adeyemi who scored the only goal in the first leg.
