Chelsea let slip a 2-0 first leg lead in Paris but dramatically reached a UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final with holders Lyon after a 91st-minute Maren Mjelde goal.

UWCL Quarter-Final 2nd Leg results:

Wolfsburg 2-4 Lyon (Agg: 3-6)
Lillestrom 0-1 Barcelona (Agg: 0-4)
Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 Chelsea (Agg: 2-3)
Bayern Munich 5-1 Slavia Praha (Agg: 6-2)

Kadidiatou Diani scored for PSG shortly after the restart and Chelsea’s first-leg lead disappeared when Ann-Katrin Berger fumbled a corner into her own net. But with extra-time looking necessary, Mjelde struck to send Emma Hayes’ side into a semi-final against holders Olympique Lyonnais.

Lyon took a 2-1 lead to Wolfsburg, where Dzsenifer Marozsán’s free kick and a Wendie Renard penalty increased that to 4-1 inside the half-hour. The hosts hit back with a quick Pernille Harder brace only for Eugénie le Sommer to also score twice for the visitors.

Bayern Munich saw off Slavia Praha following a first-leg draw, taking control of the tie back home by half time. Fridolino Rolfö, Melanie Leupolz and a Mandy Islacker double settled the matter, Kateřina Svitková repyling before Jill Roord made it 5-1 on the night.

Bayern’s first semi-final will come against Barcelona, who went through 4-0 on aggregate, Lieke Martens netting after 7 minutes in Lillestrom for the game’s only goal.
