“After that, we came back into the game” – Edin Terzic shares what he observe about Chelsea’s supporters in the first 10 minutes last night
According to Borussia Dortmund manager Edin Terzic, the impact of the Chelsea supporters was palpable in the first 10 minutes of the Champions League match at Stamford Bridge. Dortmund visited west London on Tuesday night for the second leg of the Champions League last-16 encounter. Despite having a one-goal lead, the Germans were defeated 2-0 by Chelsea, ending their European campaign for the season. Terzic acknowledged the Chelsea supporters’ influence in creating an intense atmosphere at the start of the match, saying: “I think the first 10 minutes you can feel the power not just from Chelsea but from the stadium.” However, the home supporters drove their team to victory with goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz, ensuring that Graham Potter’s team will be in the quarter-final draw. The entire fanbase united in support of Chelsea’s comeback against Dortmund, and hopefully, it can be a catalyst for the remainder of the season. The Chelsea players will need to maintain this momentum and carry it forward into this weekend’s Premier League game against Leicester City. If Potter’s squad can maintain the same level of intensity and passion, the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge could be electric for the rest of the campaign.
