Chelsea mock Dortmund on Twitter with beer dig after first leg incident

After eliminating Borussia Dortmund from the Champions League, Chelsea taunted the German team on Twitter, adding insult to injury. The Blues won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, reversing their 1-0 defeat from the first leg played three weeks ago.

The victory advanced Chelsea to the quarter-finals, alleviating some of the pressure on their coach, who was rumored to be on the verge of being fired if he did not make it to the final eight.

The Chelsea Twitter account took pleasure in the team’s back-to-back wins, including a close 1-0 victory over Leeds on Saturday, and used the platform to taunt Borussia Dortmund after an incident that occurred during the first leg of their Champions League match.

According to reports, a fan at the match threw a pint of beer towards the press box, which spilled over reporters’ laptops, when Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi scored a second-half goal. The Chelsea social media admin referenced this incident while mocking Dortmund after their defeat.

“Sorry for the delay, admin’s just been hit by a pint from above,” a post from Chelsea’s official account read. Following up the tweet after Tuesday’s triumph, they cheekily wrote: “Anyone for a beer?”

The teasing post on Chelsea’s Twitter account has garnered over 21,000 likes, with many Blues fans relishing a moment of joy in an otherwise dismal season.

The team’s triumph over Dortmund came through goals from Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz, with the latter scoring on a retaken controversial penalty after missing his initial attempt.

The goals, scored before and after half-time, enabled Chelsea to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition, and their impressive comeback displayed the kind of resilience that coach Potter had been hoping for.

“The players were tremendous and the supporters were tremendous,” the Blues boss hailed. “We had to be against a team that were doing so well. Over the two games I felt that we deserved to go through.

“It was a special night. To win a game and go into the last eight of the Champions League, it’s up there with one of the games or evenings of my career.”

First-half goalscorer Sterling added: “It was a massive performance. We had to dig deep. We took our chances. We felt as a team we could do it. I had a little mis-kick with the first touch but it landed perfectly and allowed us to build on that for our performance.”

Havertz, who was allowed to retake his penalty after VAR spotted a Dortmund player encroaching the 18-yard box, admitted: “The last two weeks were hard, we lost a lot of games. Tonight was important this is a big tournament and it’s the last trophy that we can win. We showed character and that we want to keep going.”
