The form

The Blues’ most recent game was in the Women’s Super League against Everton last Wednesday and goals from Fran Kirby, Pernille Harder and Melanie Leupolz ensured we remain two points clear at the top of the table.

Kirby registered her 18th goal of the season in all competitions when she latched onto a perfectly timed through-ball from Sam Kerr to slot home. Our No.14 Kirby then turned provider as she squared a ball in the box for Harder to place past the Toffees’ goalkeeper on the hour mark and Leupolz sealed a convincing victory with 10 minutes left on the clock from close-range.

Chelsea progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with 3-1 aggregate win over Atletico Madrid.

Opponents Wolfsburg were in action on Saturday and they reached the DFB-Pokal Cup – the German equivalent to the English FA Cup – semi-final with a 7-0 triumph versus Bremen. Alexandra Popp notched a brace, while Rebecca Blomqvist, Lena Oberdorf, Svenja Huth and Ewa Pajor and Bremer’s Franziska Jaser scored an own-goal.

Wolfsburg qualified for the last-eight of the European competition for the ninth time by winning 4-0 on aggregate against Norwegian side LSK Kvinner. Popp netted both goals in the first leg and an own-goal from LSK Kvinner’s Ina Gausdal and Ingrid Syrstad Engen were the scorers in the second leg.

Chelsea v Wolfsburg head-to-head record

Chelsea have been knocked out of the European competition by last year’s finalists on three previous occasions and the Blues are yet to beat Wolfsburg competitively.

We drew Wolfsburg at the round of 16 in the 2015/16 season and lost 4-1 on aggregate, then a year later, we met at the round of 32 and were defeated by the same score line and our most recent encounter came in our 2017/18 campaign whereby we lost 5-1 in the semi-finals.

Next up at Kingsmeadow

Chelsea’s next home game is on Sunday 28 March against Aston Villa. The Women’s Super League game kicks off at 2:30pm.
