Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund began the match with full attacking forces.

Schlotterbeck charges down the left, drawing a clumsy nudge from Havertz. A free kick has been awarded. Everyone gathers on the Chelsea box’s edge, waiting for Reus to curl it in… But instead, he throws a dummy, which Guerreiro hoicks into the area. Kepa strikes confidently.

Both teams have had good chances to take the lead at this point. Chelsea came closest, with Kai Havertz coming within inches of opening the scoring.

The Blues’ faces were stunned when his strike failed to connect. They couldn’t believe their eyes.

Dortmund are playing with the confidence of a team that has won ten consecutive games. They are stroking it.
