Chelsea one down after first leg
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 30 Apr 2021
 
Chelsea will be in a remarkably similar position to that after the first leg of the quarter finals, after the first match in their UEFA Women's Champions League semi final against Bayern Munich ended in a 2-1 defeat.
 
The Blues' bid to be the first English club to win the trophy for fourteen years is in the balance but will take an away goal into the match when the sides meet again at Kingsmeadow on Sunday, just as they did in the quarter finals against another German side, VfL Wolfsburg.
 
Bayern were ahead with twelve minutes on the clock, when a Hanna Glas cross was palmed away by Ann-Katrin Berger but only as far as Sydney Lohmann, who was on hand to head into the net.
 
Chelsea's response was a good one, albeit with a slice of luck which brought them a valuable goal. Guro Reiten delivered a free kick into the area where Marina Hegering's clearance hit Melanie Leupolz in the face and looped back over a stranded Laura Benkarth for the equaliser.
 
Bayern were to score again early in the second half, this time in spectacular fashion. Glas cut in from the right on 56 minutes and unleashed an unstoppable shot from 25 yards into the top corner of the net, giving Berger no chance.
 
Chelsea were looking lively going forward though with substitute Beth England going close with a header. Ji So-Yun almost provided a breakthrough shortly afterwards with a powerful strike which came back off the bar.
 
England headed over from a Millie Bright cross but Chelsea could not break down the Bayern defence and had to settled for a defeat on the day, but still very much in the tie overall.
 
The other semi final also has everything to play for in the second leg this week, after Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona battled out a 1-1 draw.
