  1. 'Everything we wanted is happening'

    HT: Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Karen Carney

    Media interest in this Champions League quarter-final, coupled with that new sponsorship deal for the Women's Super League, is a sign of the game's growth, according to Karen Carney.

    The England midfielder said before the game that the build-up had been in stark contrast to when she was part of the Birmingham side that lost to Tyreso of Sweden in the semi-finals five years ago.

    "I'd be surprised if many people knew we were in it, to be honest. That's not being disrespectful to Birmingham fans - I am one. It's just the level of interest was disappointing," Carney, 31, told BBC Sport.

    "The game is growing so big and so fast. Everything that we've wanted is happening."

  2. WSL sponsor deal a watershed - Hayes

    HT: Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Chelsea boss Emma Hayes has described the new sponsorship deal as "watershed moment" and says the Women's Super League will become the best in the world.

    "You need somebody like Barclays to say 'I'll be the first'." Hayes, 42, told BBC Sport.

    "The interest is growing. It's a snowball-effect and I can't see anybody getting in the way of England becoming the best place in the world to play."

  3. Barclays to sponsor Women's Super League

    HT: Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Barclays is to become the Women's Super League first ever title sponsor, in a deal the Football Association has called "the biggest ever investment in UK women's sport by a brand".

    The three-year partnership, understood to be worth in excess of £10m, will start from next season.

    The competition will be rebranded the Barclays FA Women's Super League and include a prize-money pot of £500,000.

    Previously, WSL winners have not been awarded any official prize money.

    HT: Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Erin Cuthbert (left) of Chelsea

    Erin Cuthbert (pictured) had Chelsea best chance, but it's not been a hugely significant first half at Kingsmeadow.

    However, today's match does follow a hugely significant day in domestic women's football...

  5. HALF-TIME

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    A couple more Chelsea crosses follow in the immediate aftermath, but PSG survive and the half-time whistle goes.

    A game of few chances remains goalless.

  6. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    It's not the most convincing piece of goalkeeping you've ever seen, but Christiane Endler manages to punch the ball to safety.

  7. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Erin Cuthbert wins Chelsea a corner on the right-hand side. Can the Blues muster one final chance before the break?...

  8. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    There'll be two minutes of added time at the end of this first half.

  9. Neville watches on

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    England boss Phil Neville is here watching the game from the stands, sat just behind a number of coaches from within the English women's game, including current West Ham boss Matt Beard and former Arsenal managers Vic Akers and Pedro Martinez Losa.

  10. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Any late drama before the break?

    If there's going to be any, it's looking more likely to come from Paris Saint-Germain, who've had a decent little spell in the past few minutes.

  11. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Hannah Blundell of Chelsea (left) tussles with PSG's Ashley Lawrence

    I'd say the two opposition left-wingers - Ashley Lawrence (pictured) of PSG and Chelsea's Karen Carney - have caught the eye most in an otherwise cagey first half.

    Lawrence wins a corner for the visitors, but it's comfortably cleared.

    As I said earlier, it's been classic first-leg fodder so far.

  12. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Another couple of nearly moments for Chelsea.

    First Bethany England can't quite latch onto a long ball forward from Hannah Blundell, and then Sophie Ingle fails to direct her head on target from the resulting Blues corner.

  13. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Tom's not wrong - but Erin Cuthbert perhaps should've given PSG goalkeeper Christiane Endler something to do there!

    Cuthbert pinches the ball off one of the visiting defenders and streams through on goal but, having steadied herself, sees her attempt blocked behind by a recovering challenge.

    Chelsea have not been allowed to get their usual, fluid passing going, with the French side giving them hardly any time, and squeezing out all the space.

    Neither keeper has had a proper save to make yet.

  15. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Now Drew Spence is offered a slight sight of goal around 20 yards out but, instead of shooting, tries to dink an optimistic little pass through that fizzles out to nothing in particular.

    The Blues are on top, either way.

  16. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Karen Carney (right) surges forward

    This is more like it from the home side.

    Karen Carney is becoming increasingly involved, engaging in a cracking little battle with right-back Eve Perisset.

    After a couple of robust challenges from the PSG defender, Carney picks herself up and pops it through her opponent's legs, only to then shank the cross.

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    The Chelsea forwards would welcome a bit more of that kind of service, I'm sure. Bethany England, in particular, has been feeding off scraps so far.

  18. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    And now a Chelsea chance!

    Ji So-Yun attempts to feed a pass between the PSG centre-half and full-back, but Erin Cuthbert can't quite beat goalkeeper Christiane Endler to the ball and it comes to nothing.

    It was almost the perfect through ball.

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    Aminata Diallo is going to try to carry on, but she's definitely not running at 100%.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea have at last mustered an attack of note, but it breaks down when Karen Carney overhits here cross.

  20. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 PSG

    I'd be interested to know how much possession each team has had in the opposition half - it's all been very scrappy as soon as the ball has moved into the middle third of the pitch.

    Meanwhile, Aminata Diallo seems to be struggling after a challenge in the middle of the park. I'm not sure the PSG player is going to be able to continue.
