Chelsea in control of tie
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 23 Mar 2018
 
Chelsea had a superb night by winning 2-0 away to Montpellier, two second half goals setting them up nicely for the return leg of their quarter final tie at Kingsmeadow next Wednesday.
 
However it needed a great early save from Hedvig Lindahl to keep Chelsea on terms, tipping a Virginia Torrecilla header onto the post. The visitors began to settle down though, with Ramona Bachmann and Drew Spence both having shots saved, but the first half was goalless as it drew to a close.
 
Just three minutes into the second half, Chelsea got the away goal they craved. After initial good work by Maren Mjelde, Fran Kirby slid a pass into the path of Ji So-Yun and the South Korean came up with a clinical finish, drilling a low shot beyond the dive of Casey Morgan and inside the far post.
 
Montpellier's response to going behind was swift, Sofia Jakobsson latching onto a long ball forward and holding off the attentions of Mjelde before bringing out another good save from Lindahl.
 
The game continued to go from end to end with Bachmann hitting the outside of the post from an acute angle after rounding Morgan whilst at the other end, Katrine Veje also struck the woodwork.
 
With nineteen minutes remaining, Chelsea went further ahead in the tie as a corner from the left by Magdalena Eriksson was met with a glancing header from Erin Cuthbert which just had enough power on it to beat a scrambling Morgan and find the net.
 
Chelsea needed to withstand some late pressure from the home side but emerged with their clean sheet intact and in a great position to reach the last four for the first time.
