Manchester, United Kingdom, 31 March 2021 (AFP) – Despite losing 2–1 to Manchester City this Wednesday, Barcelona qualified for the semi-finals of the Women’s Champions League, thanks to their first leg win (3 to 0), Hee as Chelsea, who beat Wolfsburg again in a comeback match, this time 3 to 0 (after 2 to 1 in the first AU).
To advance to the European tournament, Manchester City had to reverse the score from the previous match, and play at home until they started well, with a goal from Canadian Jenny Becky coming up on 20 minutes.
The hosts kept the pressure, but were hampered by a good performance from goalkeeper Sandra Panos.
Barsa, who did not have top scorer Jenny Hermoso in the Champions League (5 goals), nor Frenchwoman Khera Hamrau, both injured, came to the draw with Nigerian Asisat Oshola (59).
The English team did not give up and, looking for a favorable result, managed to resume the lead on the scoreboard with Samantha Mewis in a penalty kick (68). But the necessary goals did not appear during the second leg and City ended, with the Spanish club making the semi-finals.
In the other match of the day for the quarter-finals held in Budapest, due to health restrictions, Chelsea beat the current continental runners-up, 3–0, to make it to the semi-finals.
The third semifinalist will be known on Thursday, when Bayern Munich FC take on the Swedish city of Malmö to face Rosengard, 3–0 in the first leg following the German victory.
The last place will be played only on 18 April, between Lyon, which won the first game 1–0, and PSG, as the Lyon city team asked to change the date among their team members due to Kovid affairs. .
