Chelsea sweep into last four
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 30 Mar 2018
 
Chelsea went into the second leg of their tie with Montpellier at Kingsmeadow in the driving seat, having won 2-0 away from home in the first meeting.
 
Within five minutes, any Chelsea nerves were settled as Fran Kirby pounced on a misplaced pass and raced through on goal before planting her shot past Anouk Dekker to give her side the lead.
 
Montpellier tried to rally from the early setback and did level the scores on the night when former Chelsea striker Sofia Jakobsson lobbed Hedvig Lindahl from an angle and the French side had suddenly found a way back into the tie.
 
If it had been an anxious half time for the home side, it did not show and four minutes after the restart, they tightened their grip on the tie. This time, Kirby was the provider as she slid a neat pass to release Ramona Bachmann on goal and the Swiss striker made no mistake with an unerring finish.
 
Chelsea put the gloss on the result with twelve minutes remaining as Ji So-Yun jinked her way into the area before being brought down by Montpellier captain Linda Sembrant for a penalty. Kirby stepped up to find the net from the spot and complete a 3-1 victory on the night, an impressive 5-1 success overall.
 
Chelsea will also be at home in the first leg of their semi final and, like Manchester City, are up against the team which knocked them out last season. Emma Hayes' side will face VfL Wolfsburg, who already led by four goals from the first leg against Sparta Prague, and secured their route through with a 1-1 draw in the return meeting in the Czech Republic, Ewa Pajor scoring their goal on the night.
