  1. FT: Lyon 2-1 Chelsea

    An encouraging fight back from Chelsea in Lyon means the Blues have hope of reaching the Women's Champions League final in Budapest on 18 May.

    A 1-0 win or better at Kingsmeadow next Sunday would be enough to send Emma Hayes' side through to their first European final.

    I hope you can join us again for that. Until then, good bye!

  2. Result in the Women's Super League

    FT: West Ham 1-2 Birmingham City

    Lyon 2-1 Chelsea

    Karen Carney

    There are just a few minutes of normal time remaining in this first leg and I wonder if some Chelsea fans would take this scoreline now, with a home leg to come.

    Delphine Cascarino gets a rest after a cracking performance for the hosts, and on comes Amel Majri in midfield for Lyon.

    Erin Cuthbert

    Fantastic goal! Chelsea substitute Beth England nods the ball down for Scotland's Erin Cuthbert, who sends a first-time, half-volley straight in to the bottom corner from outside the area.

    It's a quality strike and a massive moment in this semi-final. Chelsea have an away goal.
