Chelsea women’s team manager Emma Hayes was pleased with the team’s victory in the Champions League quarter-final first leg win over Wolfsburg.

It was a big victory in the first leg and a very difficult game against the German side. Chelsea had failed to beat Wolfsburg in our previous eight meetings with the German side, and after Wednesday’s victory, Hayes believes Chelsea have closed the gap on Europe’s elite clubs.

Speaking at full-time, she said: “We’ve closed the gap, which was what my first curiosity was.

“They are still a top team. They are still unbelievable in the air, good down the sides and good from the restarts.

“I learnt that you have to suffer in moments, but the first leg is always about staying in the tie.

“There is no home advantage for either team and I’m left feeling like the advantage is with them because they’ve got the away goal.

“It was spirited with a lot of good performances from us. We gave them a game and I’m happy about that.”
