Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Dortmund?
Borussia Dortmund has a dream squad full of young and experienced talent.
The team is in great form, with their players at their peak competitive level, as they have won all five of their games.
Bellingham, his young teammates Karim Adeyemi and Gio Reyna, and veterans Julian Brandt and Raphael Guerreiro have been incredible.
Still, they will have to bring their best game to make sure they get past Chelsea in the first leg.
Why Bet on Chelsea
Chelsea’s performances as of late have been lackluster, and haven’t shown improvements despite incorporating different pieces in the winter market.
However, although they will not be able to count on their new addition, the Portuguese João Felix, for the rest of the Champions League, this team seems to have the necessary pieces to go far in the tournament.
If they pick up the pace and perform as expected in this first match, they will likely send a statement to the rest of the group of 16.
Final Betting Analysis: Dortmund vs. Chelsea
Both teams come with a different momentum, as while one is trying to get out of the middle of the table, whatever it requires, the other comes in an excellent run searching for first place. However, on paper Chelsea should have a better squad, although a less cohesive one.
In this context, we believe that the push of the Signal Iduna Park will be enough to help the locals to get a first-leg win.
Go for a victory for Borussia Dortmund. If you bet $100 on a victory for the Germans at +148, you’ll get $148 for a total payout of $248.
