Barcelona vs Chelsea LIVE: Women’s Champions League result and final score

·25-min read

Chelsea head to Barcelona and the Nou Camp knowing that only victory will do if they are to reach the final of the Women’s Champions League.

The Blues are aiming to become the first English team to win the competition since 2007 but must overturn Barcelona’s one-goal advantage, given to them by Caroline Graham Hansen’s stunning winner at Stamford Bridge. The odds are stacked against Chelsea, with Barcelona winning each of their last 18 home games in the Champions League, as well as all five at the Nou Camp.

But Chelsea will take confidence from restricting Barcelona in spells and doing enough to remain in the tie. Emma Hayes will look to take a bolder approach as the English champions attempt to gain revenge for their 4-0 defeat to Barcelona in the 2021 Women’s Champions League final, with another bumper crowd expected at the Nou Camp.

Chelsea didn’t create a single chance in the first half at the Nou Camp but they’re still in the game and the stage is set for some attacking changes to come.

39 mins: Chelsea’s best moment in quite some time comes from a counter-attack that sees Guro Reiten take the ball into the left side of the box.

36 mins: Paredes’ cross into the middle finds Caldentey who launches an effort back across goal only to have Jess Carter clear the danger for Chelsea.

“I went to Camp Nou when I was 13, in fact I saw Barcelona against Chelsea,” revealed the Blues defender Magdalena Eriksson.

You have to go back as far as February 2019 to reach the last time Barcelona failed to win a home match in the women’s game. That was a surprise 3-2 defeat by Sporting de Huelva.

Since then Barca have racked up 60 straight wins at home in the league and in the Champions League their run of home wins is a 18 dating back to March 2018 and a 1-0 loss to Lyon.

Barcelona star Aitana Bonmati on facing Chelsea at the Nou Camp: “It would be great to reach our fourth Champions League final in front of our own fans at Camp Nou. But we can’t get ahead of ourselves. We have a small advantage, but we are going out to win, regardless.

“We are waiting impatiently for Alexia’s return, but everyone knows how important the game is to be able to reach our fourth final.”

Emma Hayes on the fitness of Fran Kirby, who has travelled with the squad despite being out with a knee injury that could yet see her miss the World Cup.

“Fran wanted to come with the team,” Hayes said. “She’s part of the team. (It is) great to have her with us. At this moment in time I don’t have any more updates.

“She has been on the grass a little bit but we are having to manage day by day what that looks like and I don’t have a timeline for her return.”

17:14 , Mike Jones

“If people think that we’ve already qualified, it’s understandable, but as a coach I’ve made no mention of Sunday [the chance to clinch the Spanish title against Sporting de Huelva] or the [Women’s Champions League] final.” said the Barcelona head coach

“I show the players what to improve. We must forget the first leg and go out to win.

“[Bronze] has a strain, an ailment. It’s a tiny intervention, just a couple of weeks ... Alexia Putellas has a chance to make the squad, but there is still [Wednesday] training and we have to assess very carefully what to do so that when she returns, she returns well. We will not take any risk with Alexia.

“The priority is to qualify for the final. As a coach I will not take any risk if she is not 100%.”

In other news, this summer’s Women’s World Cup has been embroiled in a major club vs country row after the European Club Association released a statement insisting players will be unable to join up with their national teams until just 10 days before the start of the tournament in Australia and New Zealand.

The European Club Association (ECA), whose members include clubs in England’s Women’s Super League, says it has “serious concerns” that players are not being given enough time to rest after the domestic season and will seek to “strictly adhere” to Fifa’s mandatory release period of July 10.

The news could come as a significant blow to England’s preparations, with the Lionesses having planned to meet up for their World Cup camp at St George’s Park several weeks before then in June. Sarina Wiegman had hoped for the Lionesses to have a send-off match in England in early July before arriving in Australia on July 7.

Lucy Bronze fine after limping off during Barcelona’s win at Chelsea

16:56 , Mike Jones

Jonatan Giraldez provided a positive update on Lucy Bronze after the England defender was forced off with a knee injury during Barcelona’s 1-0 win over Chelsea in their Champions League semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge.

The Barca right-back winced as she limped off in the second half after she went down with an issue to her right knee.

Bronze’s injury was a fresh scare for England manager Sarina Wiegman with both Beth Mead and Leah Williamson set to miss the World Cup with ACL tears.

“She felt something in her knee in the beginning,” Giraldez said.

Alexia Putellas returned to Barcelona training on Wednesday as the Spain star and Ballon d’Or winner nears her comeback from last summer’s ACL injury.

The midfielder has not played for Barcelona since season’s Champions League final defeat to Lyon.

“We have to assess very carefully what to do so that when she returns, she returns well,” said the Barcelona head coach Jonatan Giráldez.

“We will not take any risk with Alexia. The priority is to qualify for the final. As a coach I will not take any risk if she is not 100 per cent.”

Emma Hayes says Chelsea are ready for challenge of toppling Barcelona

16:40 , Mike Jones

Emma Hayes insists her Chelsea side are as ready as they can be to spring a Women’s Champions League surprise over Barcelona.

The Catalan club are enjoying a perfect Liga F campaign, winning all 25 of their games, and hold a narrow 1-0 lead in their semi-final tie with Chelsea after victory at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Regarded as one of the best women’s teams in Europe, Barcelona will be favourites to finish the job in front of a crowd of over 65,000 at the Nou Camp, with either Arsenal or Wolfsburg to come in the final.

Hayes, though, has backed her side to give their all against an opponent who beat Chelsea 4-0 in the Champions League final two years ago.

Emma Hayes says Chelsea are ready for challenge of toppling Barcelona

Barcelona vs Chelsea: Last time out

16:34 , Jamie Braidwood

Thankfully for Chelsea, last week’s first leg against Barcelona in the Women’s Champions League was not the repeat of the 2021 final that at one stage it threatened to be. Chelsea set out to survive and will head to the Nou Camp still in the tie and only 1-0 down, but to win this semi-final they will need to offer much, much more. The Blues will take heart from how they restricted and disrupted Barcelona at times, but a defensive, passive approach from Emma Hayes’ side leaves them requiring another mircale in the second leg.

Chelsea will not fear such odds but overturning this will take something special. Chelsea could not live with Barcelona to begin with, particularly the outstanding Caroline Graham Hansen, who sealed Barcelona’s 4-0 win in Gothenburg two years ago and returned to terrorise Chelsea here. To raise the Barcelona bench from its feet and to stun this team of global stars takes something magical, and that’s what the winger produced with her wonderful opener after four minutes. It looked a long way back for Chelsea then, but they hung on.

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes on facing Barcelona: “Nobody denies they are a fabulous team with an amazing history, particularly here, We have to accept that we will suffer more against Barcelona than anyone else. But we showed in the previous game we can defend.

“We will have to do that at an even higher level and the execution from us with the football has to be better. It’s a football match. The game is 1-0. We have a fair and equal chance.

“This is a strength of our team. We are built to cope with the challenges. We like to suffer. We’re as prepared as we possibly can be. I have said it time and time again, we have a dressing room of players that want to be in this position. We will give it everything we have got.

“We’re looking forward to playing at this magnificent stadium. At 1-0 there is no doubt, with their history here, we have to be at our very best.”

Hello, good afternoon, and welcome to The Independent’s coverage of this evening’s Women’s Champions League clash between Barcelona and Chelsea.

Emma Hayes’ side trail by one goal following the first leg at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. Caroline Graham Hansen stunned the Blues with a wonderful strike from the right side of the box to earn the visitors a slender lead in the tie.

Chelsea had their moments of dominance during the match however and they’ll harbour hopes of causing an upset against the Liga F champions.

It won’t be easy though. Barcelona have won 18 home games in row in the WCL and know that a drew or better will be enough to send them into the final.

We’ll have all the build-up, team news and updates from the Nou Camp as kick off approaches at 5.45pm
