Chelsea, Barça’s rival in the Champions League semifinals

The English take a dramatic ticket against Lyon on penalties


Chelsea eliminated Olympique Lyonnais on penalties (1-2, 4-3) this Thursday to advance to the semifinals of the Women’s Champions League, an epic triumph against the current champion who quotes him with Barça for a place in the final.

The Spanish team, which thrashed Roma (5-1) on Wednesday, will meet in the ‘semis’ with a Chelsea that fell (4-0) against the culé team in the 2021 final, Barça’s first Champions League. A Mjelde penalty goal in the 128th minute frustrated Lyon.

The eight-time champion and defending champion had the pass in his hand after Gilles’ 0-1 draw. Thus, the French team equalized the tie and pressed in the final stretch without avoiding extra time. In extra time came the 0-2 of Daebritz.

With the time expired in extra time, the referee, helped with the VAR, signaled a penalty on James. Chelsea thus forced a shootout in which their goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger was the heroine, stopping two shots.
