Chelsea have become the second English women’s side to reach the Champions League final after Arsenal won this tournament in 2007, and the Blues’ route to this season’s final has been full of goals.
In the round-of-32 Emma Hayes‘s side claimed an emphatic 8-0 aggregate win over Benfica which was followed up by a 3-0 overall victory against last season’s quarter-finalists Atletico Madrid.
After reaching the semi-final stage of the Champions League in 2018 and 2019, Chelsea were determined to ensure this season they go at least one better and make it to the final, which they achieved by scoring five goals in each of the quarter-final and semi-final ties.
A 5-1 aggregate win over Wolfsburg in the quarter-final was especially welcomed by Hayes after she had witnessed her team being knocked out of the Champions League by the German side for three consecutive years from 2016 to 2018.
In the first-leg tie of the semi-final against Bayern Munich the London side left themselves with it all to do at Kingsmeadow after losing 2-1 in Germany, but the return fixture a week later saw Chelsea run out 4-1 winners on the day to book their place in the final.
The Blues have achieved domestic success since the Champions League semi-final as last week a 5-0 victory over Reading meant that Hayes’s side retained their Women’s Super League title and claimed their fourth league winners’ medals in WSL history.
Since 2016, French giants Olympique Lyonnais have lorded over women’s football. Their inevitability and dominance was akin to the Eye of Sauron, peering menacingly over their vast European domain. Having won the Women’s Champions League seven times in total, Lyon are just one of seven ever winners of the prestigious competition.
But PSG showed that even the most unbeatable eventually get beaten, and for the first time in five years, Lyon won’t be playing for the European cup. With the biggest giant in women’s football slain, a new champion is about to emerge.
