Chelsea Women Through To The Champions League Finals – Can Our Men Do The Same?

Chelsea women have overturned a first-leg defeat to beat Bayern Munich ladies at home.

Chelsea women’s head coach Emma Hayes has successfully guided her Chelsea team to the Champions League final following the Blues defeat of Bayern Munich in the semi-final.

In doing so, Hayes also makes history as she becomes the first female manager to reach the Champions League final since the competition became rebranded in 2009.

Meanwhile, Chelsea women came into the tie trailing 2-1 from the first leg, but the Blues wasted no time on subduing Bayern at Kingsmeadow while booking a shot for the giant trophy.

The Blues were rooted for a comeback as a brace from Kirby and a goal each from So-Yo and Mosegaard-Harder secured a 4-1 win for Hayes charges.

On the other hand, Chelsea men’s team will be lining up against Spanish giants Real Madrid on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final at Stamford Bridge.

Going into the fixture, Chelsea has an advantage as they managed to get an away goal from Madrid last week.

So the question now is, can the Blues men make it to the finals just like their female compatriots?
