First Goalscorer Christopher Nkunku 5/1 with Betfair

The United States has been the place to be this summer for pre-season action, with some of Europe’s biggest clubs jetting across the Atlantic to get their boots warm and prepare for the 2023/24 campaign. Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund are just two of the powerhouses currently enjoying stateside sojourns.

Mauricio Pochettino’s pre-season preparations have so far been exclusively in the United States. The new Chelsea boss has overseen wins over Wrexham, Brighton & Hove Albion and west London rivals Fulham so far, as well as drawing 1-1 with recent Champions League inductees Newcastle United.

Edin Terzic has enjoyed a pretty successful summer so far for BVB. His side are currently on a five-game winning run this pre-season, including that most recent 3-2 victory over Manchester United in Las Vegas. Although just a friendly, Terzic will be determined to claim another Premier League scalp ahead of 2023/24.

Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund match stats

Summer signings Christopher Nkunku (three) and Nicolas Jackson (two) have scored a combined five goals this pre-season for Chelsea so far, with at least one of the new forwards on the scoresheet in each game. Such prowess and final-third potency should give Pochettino’s attack a completely new complexion.

Scoreline prediction: Chelsea 2-2 Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund head-to-head

07 Mar 2023 – Chelsea 2-0 Borussia Dortmund – Champions League

15 Feb 2023 – Borussia Dortmund 1-0 Chelsea – Champions League

These two clubs have only met twice before, and both meetings came in the Champions League last season. In one of Graham Potter’s final acts before getting the axe, he overturned a 1-0 deficit from a first-leg defeat in the last 16 to beat Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate. Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz got the goals for him at Stamford Bridge that sealed the turnaround.
