Chelsea made it two wins from two in the UEFA Women’s Champions League Group Stage with an 8-0 thrashing of Vllaznia at Kingsmeadow.

Group A

Real Madrid 0-0 Paris Saint-Germain
Chelsea 8-0 Vllaznia

Group B

St.Polten 3-4 Roma
Slavia Prague 0-2 Wolfsburg

Kerr gave Chelsea a two-goal lead with a shot on the turn from Pernille Harder’s pass, then netting a Guro Reiten cross, in front of a sizeable and vocal support for the Albanian visitors. Reiten immediately set up Harder a minute later and Kerr completed her hat-trick when nodding home Reiten’s corner.

The same two combined as Kerr became the first player to notch four in a UWCL group game in her 100th Blues appearance. Harderwent onto complete her own treble, while Kateřina Svitková buried a header.

It ended goalless between Real Madrid and PSG, with the best chances coming in the second half. Misa Rodriguez saved when PSG’s Kadidiatou Diani was played through on goal, soon after at the other end Sandi Toletti knocked a loose ball wide.

Roma fought back from 2-0 down away to St. Pölten with four goals on a 12-minute spell to win a seven-goal thriller. Jasmin Eder’s spot-kick and Rita Schumacher had the Austrian side two up, Elena Linari and Valentina Giacinti cancelled that out, with Andressa Alves having a penalty saved in-between. Manuela Giugliano and Paloma Lázaro took the score to 4-2, before Mária Mikolajová got the hosts’ third.

Like Roma, Wolfsburg are also on six points following a 2-0 victory at Slavia Prague. Jule Brand turned in Svenja Huth’s cross after 11 minutes, Ewa Pajor doubling the lead in the last 15 minutes as Huth claimed a second assist.
