The manager of Borussia Dortmund, Edin Terzic, has admitted that he felt the impact of the Chelsea supporters last night, particularly in the first 10 minutes of the Champions League match at Stamford Bridge.
Dortmund left on Tuesday night for the second leg of a Champions League round of 16 match in west London.
The Germans’ summer European journey came to an end yesterday as Chelsea defeated them 2-0 despite having a one-goal advantage.
At Stamford Bridge, it was again another unforgettable Champions League night, with the home crowd spiritedly cheering on their team to victory.
Finally, Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz’s goals gave Graham Potter’s team a chance at making it to the quarterfinal draw.
Dortmund’s boss did give a special mention to the atmosphere created by the Chelsea supporters at the start of yesterday’s match.
“I think the first 10 minutes you can feel the power not just from Chelsea but from the stadium,” Terzic told BT Sport 1.
“After that, we came back into the game but they managed to score and we didn’t.”
Last night, the entire fan base rallied in support of Chelsea’s attempt to take down Dortmund after falling behind, which they accomplished with tremendous style.
It was hopefully the kind of performance that could serve as a springboard for the season’s final third.
The Chelsea players must maintain this momentum going into this weekend’s away Premier League game against Leicester City.
The remaining games of this season might have Stamford Bridge shaking if Potter’s team plays with the same level of enthusiasm and determination.
