Chelsea conceded four goals in the first 36 minutes as Barcelona blew them away to win their first Women’s Champions League title in Gothenburg.
Chelsea trailed 33 seconds in when an attempted clearance hit Melanie Leupolz and went in for an own goal, and Alexia Putellas’ penalty made it 2-0.
Aitiana Bonmati finished an intricate move and Caroline Graham Hansen tapped in to put a rampant Barca out of sight.
Despite a spirited second-half display there was no way back for the Blues.
Barcelona become the first club to clinch both the men’s and women’s Champions League title, while this was the biggest ever winning margin in a women’s champions league final and a real shock to the system for Chelsea manager, Emma Hayes, who had stated before the game that her team could dominate women’s football.
Emma Hayes said after Chelsea Women’s Champions League final loss against Barcelona ” it was over before it began” and despite some inexperience, the players will learn from the defeat.
We all said Melanie our love.
