Chelsea in driving seat
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 22 Mar 2019
 
Chelsea are in a strong position at the midway point of their UEFA Women's Champions League quarter final tie against Paris Saint Germain, taking a 2-0 lead into the second leg thanks to two late goals.
 
The first half was largely a cagey affair and chances were scarce at either end as a result. Chelsea were looking the more adventurous of the two sides with Erin Cuthbert in lively form up front, the Scottish international going closest when she seized possession and broke down the right before her shot brought out a good block from PSG captain Irene Paredes.
 
The introduction of Fran Kirby as a half time substitute gave Chelsea extra impetus going forward and the striker almost made an immediate impact, bursting through on goal but her side was inches wide of the post. Paris hit back straight away and Ann-Katrin Berger did well to turn away a curling shot from Ashley Lawrence.
 
With seventeen minutes remaining, Chelsea broke the deadlock through a 20-yard left foot strike from Hannah Blundell which dipped over Christiane Endler and into the far corner of the net. Invigorated by the goal, the Blues almost went two ahead when Sophie Ingle thumped a header against the post from a corner. Three minutes later though, Cuthbert exchanged passes with Kirby before drilling home a low shot to double Chelsea's lead.
 
The second leg takes place next Wednesday at the Stade Jean Bouin (6.30pm).
 
Elsewhere, Toni Duggan became the all-time English goalscorer in the competition when she netted twice for Barcelona in their 3-0 victory over LSK Skvinner. The tie of the round is nicely balanced with Olympique Lyonnais leading VfL Wolfsburg 2-1, whilst Slavia Prague and Bayern Munich are level at 1-1.
