Looking for a Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund free live stream? We've got you covered. 

Chelsea conclude their tour of the USA, and their pre-season in general, with a game against last season's Bundesliga runners-up. This is set to be the fifth game of the Blues' pre-season, having already played Wrexham, Brighton, Newcastle and Fulham

Newcastle are the only team Chelsea didn't manage to beat, with the score ending 1-1. Mauricio Pochettino's side will head back to England after their game with Dortmund to prepare for their Premier League opener against Liverpool, away at Anfield next Sunday. 

Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, have already played five pre-season games, with their most notable fixture a 3-2 win against Manchester United. Chelsea won't be their final game of pre-season, though, with Edin Terzić's team scheduled to play against Ajax on Sunday as well. 

The game is kicking off in the middle of the night, however, so you're going to have to either stay up late or set an alarm…
