Chelsea look to confirm their superb exploits from the first leg as they face Barcelona in the Women’s Champions League semi-final.

The Blues lead 1-0 on aggregate after a shock win at Barcelona, ​​as the Spanish side suffered their first home defeat in any competition for more than five years.

Erin Cuthbert’s goal is the difference ahead of the second leg at Stamford Bridge, but it is a slight advantage for Chelsea and they remain underdogs against a team who have reached the Champions League final in four of the last five seasons.

Chelsea are aiming for a first ever European trophy in what will be Emma Hayes’ final season in charge of the club. The Blues were knocked out by eventual winners Barcelona in the quarter-finals a year ago, and were heavily beaten by the Spanish giants in the 2021 final.

Kick-off date, time and location

Chelsea vs Barcelona is scheduled to kick off at 5:30 p.m. BST on Saturday, April 27, 2024.
