Chelsea boss Graham Potter has explained what Chelsea’s mentality is ahead of the trip to Germany and our first-ever meeting against Borussia Dortmund.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us,” Potter told Chelsea’s official website.

“We have to see it that way. It’s a tough match against a high-quality opponent, but at the same time many of our team have won the Champions League, they’ve experienced it. They will want to fight for the game that’s for sure. That’s exciting for us.

“In knockout competition anything can happen,” Potter added.

“It’s two games. It’s not valuable for us to look too far past Dortmund. We have the capability to beat Dortmund, but they’re also a strong side with a capability of getting a result in Europe as well. We have to understand that, and go to Dortmund with excitement, with humility, with respect, and try and get the result.

“The players are confident, they’re hard-working, they believe in themselves, but they also know it’s a game of football you have to earn the right to win. We will go there with that approach.”
