Lyon dominated the opening stages and went ahead on 28 minutes, after Magdalena Eriksson diverted a dangerous cross into her own goal.

The French side later doubled their lead through Dzsenifer Marozsán, before Fran Kirby missed a penalty in first-half stoppage time.

Chelsea came out fighting in the second-half and clawed a crucial goal back through Erin Cuthbert, who volleyed home brilliantly from 20 yards.

In the day’s second semi-final, Barcelona edged past Bayern Munich thanks to a winner from Kheira Hamraoui.

The French international saw her cross-shot sail in after being played through by midfielder Mariona Caldentey.

Bayern huffed and puffed but couldn’t break their opponents down, leaving them with a mountain to climb in the second leg.
