Wolfsburg send Chelsea out
 Women's Football News 19 Nov 2015
VfL Wolfsburg 2 (Bernauer 12, Rafferty og 68) Chelsea 0
(Wolfsburg won 4-1 on aggregate)

Chelsea bowed out of the UEFA Women's Champions League at the hands of former winners VfL Wolfsburg. 
The FA Women's Super League champions travelled to Germany with a 2-1 deficit following the home leg but a goal in each half put paid to their chances and for the first time since the competition was established in 2001, there will be no English team in the quarter finals.
Chelsea thwarted a dangerous Caroline Hansen run early on but the hosts were soon ahead, when Bernauer controlled a clearance with her chest 30 yards from goal and fired an unstoppable effort into the top corner.
The Blues threatened briefly at the other end before Babett Peter shot inches wide for the German side on the half hour mark, but Chelsea did finish the half on the front foot.
Ji So-Yun had a penalty shout waved away early in the second half following a mazy dribble into the penalty area, while Eniola Aluko was unlucky to see her 20-yard shot come back off the underside of the bar following good link up play with Fran Kirby.
Kirby was next to come close, sticking out a left boot to meet a teasing Gemma Davison cross only to watch her effort fly high and wide of the target.
The result was to be put beyond doubt though as, midway through the second half, the excellent Hansen fired a shot against the post and from the rebound, Alexandra Popp's strike was diverted in off Claire Rafferty. Popp's shot may have been going in anyway and an own goal was perhaps harshly awarded but it was the point of no return for Chelsea.
The only English interest remaining in the Champions League is now with Anita Asante, whose FC Rosengard side have a comfortable 3-1 lead going into the second leg on Thursday night.
