Barcelona vs Chelsea match preview

Following Saturday’s first leg at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have a mountain to climb if they’re to reach just the club’s second-ever Champions League Final.

At the weekend, it took just over three minutes for Barcelona to break the deadlock, with Caroline Graham Hansen cutting in on her left foot before lashing into the far corner; Ann-Katrin Berger had no chance.

Just before half time, Guro Reiten came close to an equaliser, but her shot was blocked on the line by Lucy Bronze.

Late on, Marta Torrejón’s header hit the post, but 1-0 it finished after a game didn’t really catch light, with neither team at their free-flowing best.

Now, given that Barcelona have won their last 19 Champions League home games, scoring 78 goals, the Catalan giants are firm favourites to advance.

Barça have featured in three of the last four Champions League Finals, picking up their maiden title in 2021 by smashing Chelsea 4-0.

Having won 1-0 in West London, Jonatan Giráldez’s team are firm favourites to be featuring at Philips Stadion on 3 June.

Chelsea meanwhile knocked out holders Olympique Lyonnais Féminin in the quarter-finals, but now need to produce another monumental comeback here too.

The Blues are chasing a treble this season, set to face Manchester United in the FA Cup Final, while they’re third in the WSL, four points below Man United but with two games in hand.

However, baring a remarkable remontada in Catalonia, Emma Hayes’ dreams of a first European title will be over for another season.

Will it be a night of celebration in front of another huge crowd for Barcelona at Camp Nou?

Barcelona team news

England right-back Lucy Bronze hobbled off at the weekend, another concern ahead of the World Cup, with Marta Torrejón set to deputise here.

Top-scorer Asisat Oshoala has been struggling for fitness lately but, after coming off the bench on Saturday, could start here.

Captain and back-to-back Ballon d’Or Féminin winner Alexia Putellas is edging back to full fitness after rupturing her ACL last July.

Chelsea team news

Star attacker Pernille Harder came off the bench in the first leg, her first appearance since November due to a hamstring injury.

Defenders Kadiesha Buchanan and Millie Bright as well as key midfielder Fran Kirby are all sidelined.

Lauren James impressed as a substitute on Saturday, so could come into the attack, alongside top-scorer Sam Kerr.
