Mixed fortunes in UWCL
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 26 Mar 2021
Chelsea will take a narrow 2-1 lead into the second leg of their UEFA Women's Champions League quarter final tie with VfL Wolfsburg but Manchester City have it all to do after being beaten 3-0 by FC Barcelona.
Manchester City were first in action and travelled to Monza to take on Barcelona and came under pressure early on, Ellie Roebuck making a good save to prevent Asisat Oshoala from giving the home side the lead. Roebuck also did well to palm away a strike from Alexia Putellas but she could not prevent Oshoala from giving Barcelona the lead on 35 minutes.
Sam Mewis had a goal disallowed for offside but an eleven minute spell in the second half firmly pushed the match Barcelona's way. First, Oshoala was brought down in the area by Demi Stokes and Mariona Caldentey confidently dispatched the resulting penalty. Then, City were awarded a spot kick themselves as Lauren Hemp was fouled by Maria Leon, Chloe Kelly stepped up but her kick brought out a good save from Sandra Panos.
City pressed for a vital away goal, with Hemp in particular causing problems but with four minutes left, Jennifer Hermoso scored a third, following up to score after Roebuck had tipped Putellas' shot onto the post.
Chelsea played host to Wolfsburg in their first leg at the Szusza Ferenc Stadium and it was the former winner who had the better of the chances in the first half. Alexandra Popp hit the post whilst Ann-Katrin Berger pulled off two good saves from Fridolina Rolfo and Nimah Charles and Jonna Andersson both made clearances off the line, the latter from an overhead kick by Ewa Pajor.
Popp did get the ball in the net but hand done so with her hand, resulting in a yellow card for the Wolfsburg captain, and Rolfo headed against the post early in the second half.
Chelsea managed to ride the storm and took the lead just before the hour, once again courtesy of their in-form strike duo. Fran Kirby slipped a neat through ball to Sam Kerr who who took the ball around Kiedrzynek and tucked home from an angle.
Berger pulled off another great save at the other end from a Rolfo volley and minutes later, Pernille Harder doubled Chelsea's lead against her former club after Kirby and Kerr combined to set her up with the chance to score.
Four minutes later, Wolfsburg got the lifeline they needed when Magdalena Eriksson brought down Svenja Huth in the area and Dominique Janssen scored from the resulting penalty.
