Chelsea entertained Borussia Dortmund at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a good result at home in the UEFA Champions League and overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg. The Blues made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 43rd minute thanks to Raheem Sterling’s goal. The West London club went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
