Chelsea lost their UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final 1st leg 2-1 at Bayern Munich, while Barcelona held PSG.

Guro Reiten had an early effort over the bar for Chelsea but the opening goal came at the other end, Ann-Katrin Berger not dealing with a cross and Sydney Lohmann heading home.

However, the visitors hit back midway through the half, when an attempted clearance went in off the head of former Bayern player Melanie Leupolz.

The hosts did gain a first leg lead when Hanna Glas beat Berger inside her near post from the edge of the box.

Chelsea had their chances though, especially when Ji So-yun hit the bar and Beth England could not quite get enough on the header from the rebound.

The second leg is live on BT Sport on Sunday lunchtime, 2 May.

Barcelona scored an away-goal in holding Paris Saint-Germain to a draw.

Barcelona’s Caroline Graham Hansen forced an early save from Cristiane Endler but did set up the opening goal in the 13th minute, crossing for Jennifer Hermoso to head home.

PSG took less than ten minutes to get back on level terms, Alana Cook with a close-range header, and the hosts were very nearly ahead soon after but for Marta Torrejón’s hooked clearance off the goal-line.

Endler made two atheltic saves to deny Hermoso and make the save from the resulting corner, then later at the other end Marie-Antoinette Katoto’s effort hit the inside of the Barca upright.

Moments after coming off the bench, Barca’s Asisat Oshoala was a touch away from restoring the lead in the six-yard box.
