Chelsea Women have reached the Champions League final for the first time in our history after beating Bayern Munich.

Having lost the first leg in Munich 2-1, Chelsea Women beat Bayern Munich 4-1 at home to progress to the final.

Chelsea opened the scoring in the first half with a goal from Fran Kirby in the 10th minute.

However, Bayern drew level after 30 minutes through an unstoppable strike by Sarah Zadrazil, who rattled one in from 30 yards that left Ann-Katrin Berger with no chance.

The Blues scored our second and drew level on aggregate – on the stroke of half-time when Ji So-Yun hooked in a right-footed shot that crept into the far corner.

With six minutes to go we moved a step closer to the final when Pernille Harder headed home Jess Carter’s free-kick to put us 3-1 up on the night.

After repelling several attacks from Bayern Munich, Kirby scored her second goal of the game and Chelsea’s fourth.

Chelsea Women will play Barcelona in the Champions League final on Sunday 16 May.
