    Chelsea advanced to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday after defeating Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate.

    Raheem Sterling’s close-range strike in the 43rd minute put Chelsea ahead at Stamford Bridge.

    In the 52nd minute, the Blues were granted a penalty kick, but Kai Havertz struck the post from the spot.

    The penalty, however, had to be retaken due to encroachment, according to the video assistant referee (VAR).

    In the 53rd minute, Havertz converted his second penalty attempt to make it 2-0 in London.

    The London football team advanced to the quarterfinals after a 2-0 second-leg victory.

    The second leg play had been delayed by 10 minutes due to a late arrival of the Borussia Dortmund bus to the stadium.
