Women’s Champions League semi-finals today

1st leg of Women’s Champions League semi-finals will take place today. Paris SG – Barcelona kick-off at 14.00 CET, Bayern – Chelsea at 16.00 CET. We will get a new name in the Women’s Champions League winners list. But who will that be?

Paris SG – Barcelona at 14.00 CET

PSG ended Lyon’s five-year Women’s Champions League domination just last Sunday after the postponed 2nd leg due to COVID-19 in Lyon’s team. They showed true character overturning the deficit after going one goal down also in the 2nd leg. Parisians already have the experience of knocking out Barcelona at this stage. In the 2017 semi-finals, they knocked out the Catalans with 5-1 on aggregate.

On the other side, Barcelona have deadly attack in this season. The Catalans equalled the Liga Iberdrola record for the most goals scored in a season with 11 games to go (total of 156 goals in 33 games). Out of all semifinalists, Barcelona is the only one that can focus only on the Champions League, considering their 14-point advantage in Liga Iberdrola. After their success against Manchester City in the quarter-final, Blaugrana remain one of the top contenders for the Women’s Champions League title.

FC Bayern München – Chelsea at 16.00 CET

Neither team has played in the final before. Bayern went on an incredible series with 26 wins in all competitions. They had no problems with Rosengard in the quarter-final. But recently, Bavarians dropped a bit in their performances. They suffered their first league defeat against Hoffenheim and were very close to dropping more points against Turbine midweek. Usual number one between the post, Laura Benkarth suffered a knee injury and is still doubtful for today’s game.

Chelsea has two-point advantage for the last 2 games in the Women’s Super League. The Blues have already faced and successfully knocked out two teams of the highest quality in the current Women’s Champions League edition, Atlético Madrid and Wolfsburg. They are hoping to become only the second English finalists after Arsenal won the title in 2007. Chelsea will try to repeat that, together with Melanie Leupolz, former Bayern player who arrived in London in 2020.
