That's all from us tonight

Cheers for your company this evening, on a memorable night for English women's clubs in Europe.

In fact, across tonight's four quarter-final second legs, we've been treated to no less than 15 goals! Not a bad night all round.

After fine wins for the WSL 1 pair, Chelsea and Man City can both look forward to the semi-finals. See you next time. Good night.

Past British semi-finalists


Here's how recent British semi-finalists of the Women's Champions League have fared.

Arsenal are the most recent (and only) finalists and winners, lifting the European title in 2007.

Latest score

Meanwhile, Reading are currently 2-0 up over Yeovil Town Ladies.

That WSL 1 game began at 19:45 BST, so there's around 35 minutes to go at Adams Park.

Full-time WSL 1 scores

Elsewhere tonight, looking at domestic matters, in the top-flight, there are two full-time scores:

  • Bristol City 0-2 Birmingham City
  • Sunderland 1-1 Everton

Birmingham's win lifts them up to fourth in the table.

The semi-finals

So, with two British women's sides through to the last four in Europe for the first time ever, here is the line-up for this season's semi-finals:

  • Chelsea v Wolfsburg
  • Manchester City v Lyon

The two-legged ties will be played over the final two weekends of April.

FT: Chelsea 3-1 Montpellier (5-1 agg)

Chelsea are all smiles, as they celebrate on the field in front of their largest ever crowd at Kingsmeadow.

Millie Bright - who was rock solid in defence, all night long - gets a big hug from several of her teammates.

It's a fine, fine result for Emma Hayes' side. Chelsea reach the Women's Champions League semi-finals for the first time.

Fran Kirby is their star on the night, with two goals and an assist.


Chelsea 3-1 Montpellier (5-1 agg)

It's almost a champagne finish for Chelsea, as Ramona Bachmann skips away down the left and squares the ball perfectly in to Erin Cuthbert's stride, but the Scotland midfielder's low, first-time shot goes just wide.

YELLOW CARD (Montpellier)

Chelsea 3-1 Montpellier (5-1 agg)

Ramona Bachmann is cynically dragged back by Virginia Torrecilla, who is booked.

There'll be three minutes of added time.

Chelsea are easing through now. They've been very comfortable overall, since half-time.

Over the course of the tie, Montpellier created a lot of chances, but Chelsea have been far, far more clinical.

To warm applause, off goes Fran Kirby. Her two goals tonight are helping see Chelsea through. Winger Gemma Davison enters the game.

Chelsea's third and final change sees Ji So-Yun go off, with defender Gilly Flaherty coming on.

Moments later, Hannah Blundell intervenes to clear off the line for Chelsea and deny Montpellier a goal back!

GOAL: Chelsea 3-1 Montpellier (5-1 agg)

Fran Kirby, pen (77 mins)

The keeper goes the right way, but Fran Kirby finds the bottom corner and that should be that for Chelsea, who will surely now reach the Women's Champions League semi-finals.


Chelsea 2-1 Montpellier (4-1 agg)

Ji So-Yun goes down in the area and that's a penalty to Chelsea. Is it soft? Maybe... But there's contact. She used her quick feet to get through a crowd of defenders.

Patrobas Masika: I'm a Chelsea Ladies fan and I'm hoping it will be an all-English final.

Well, that remains a possible scenario, as the two English sides are on opposite sides of the semi-final draw.

Chelsea 2-1 Montpellier (4-1 agg)

Chelsea's Drew Spence comes off. In her place, on comes Scotland youngster Erin Cuthbert, who scored in the first leg after coming on from the bench last week.

Chelsea 2-1 Montpellier (4-1 agg)

Plenty of balls have been launched in to the Chelsea penalty area in this second half, but they've either been met by the head of Millie Bright, Katie Chapman or the welcoming arms of keeper Hedvig LIndahl.

Tonight's attendance is announced as 3,050 - a new club highest for Chelsea Ladies at Kingsmeadow, according to my records. It is their first over 3,000.
