Chelsea despatched Wolfsburg from the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-finals, with a 5-1 aggregate win.

The Blues took a 26th-minute as Sam Kerr broke into the box from Pernille Harder’s long ball and went down under a challenge. With a penalty awarded, Harder stepped up and side-footed it into the bottom corner.

Moments later, Ewa Pajor was desperately close to equalising but had to stretch too much at the far post.

Chelsea made it two goals in five minutes, with a shot on the turn from Kerr, which crucially left Wolfsburg needing to score four times for an aggregate victory.

They found even a single goal hard to come by, with a tame Dominique Janssen free-kick all that needed a save from Ann-Katrin Berger, before Emma Hayes’ side got a third in the last ten minutes.

Ji So-Yun had only just come off the bench when she played in Fran Kirby for a composed finish, making it 3-0 on the day.

Semi-final opponents are likely to be Frauen Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich, who have a 3-0 lead over Rosengard ahead of tomorrow’s second leg.
