Chelsea 4-1 Bayern Munich (agg: 5-3): Fran Kirby double
helps Blues reach Women's Champions League final
Late goals by Pernille Harder and Fran Kirby took Chelsea
through to their first Women's Champions League final at the
expense of Bayern Munich in a captivating game.
The Blues trailed 2-1 after the away leg but Kirby's breakaway
strike put them in control on away goals.
Sarah Zadrazil's stunning shot made it 1-1 but Ji So-yun
restored the lead.
With extra time looming Harder headed in and, as Bayern
pressed, Kirby scored into an empty net to seal victory.
Emma Hayes celebrates Chelsea reaching 'dream' Champions
League final
Kirby ran half the length of the pitch to ensure Chelsea's
progress in a dramatic finish to an astonishing game at
Kingsmeadow.
The goal sparked wild scenes of celebration among players
and staff, with a tearful manager Emma Hayes overwhelmed
by leading Chelsea through to the final against Barcelona in
Gothenburg on Sunday, 16 May.
Relive the action from Kingsmeadow
Hayes 'overwhelmed' by historic Chelsea win
Harder's fine near-post header from Jess Carter's exquisite
free-kick had put the Blues on the verge of becoming the first
English side since Arsenal in 2007 to reach a European final.
Bayern piled forward in the final stages, causing blind panic on
several occasions as they desperately sought the second away
goal that would have taken them through.
But the hosts somehow survived and, with keeper Laura
Benkarth upfield Kirby made sure of a monumental win.

Chelsea's quadruple quest continues
Hayes has led Chelsea into Europe on five occasions
Boss Hayes was overcome with emotion, having twice taken
Chelsea to the semi-finals where they lost to Wolfsburg in
2018 and Lyon in 2019.
She was on the Arsenal coaching staff when the Gunners won
the Uefa Women's Cup - as the Women's Champions League
was then known - in 2007.
Victory over Bayern means a remarkable quadruple is still
feasible.
Wins over Tottenham and Reading in their remaining two
Women's Super League fixtures will ensure back-to-back
domestic league titles.
The Blues have already won the League Cup, thrashing Bristol
City 6-0 in the final, and also have a fifth-round FA Cup tie at
home to Everton looming.
