Olympique Lyonnais 0-1 Chelsea
It’s advantage Chelsea after the first leg of the quarter-final tie against defending European champions Olympique Lyonnais. Norwegian star Guro Reiten continued her recent fine form by scoring the only goal after 28 minutes. Reiten turned the ball home after Erin Cuthbert beat Damaris Egurrola to supply the pass. Lyon had much of the play in the first half, but Chelsea were more then deserving of the result. It was a superb win for Chelsea, who host the second leg at Stamford Bridge next week.
