Barcelona put on a brilliant display to beat Chelsea 4-0 to win the Women’s Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history on Sunday.
An own goal by Melanie Leupolz gave Barca the lead in the first minute, and Alexia Putellas, Aitana Bonmati and Caroline Graham Hansen also got on the scoresheet in a pulsating first half.
Chelsea’s switch to a more direct style saw an improvement in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Catalan club from coasting to victory.
For Emma Hayes, the nature of a first-half performance will be a huge disappointment - but the Chelsea boss will no doubt use the pain of this defeat as a learning experience for both her players and herself.
The Blues are still looking to complete a treble season by adding FA Cup success to their Women’s Super League and League Cup titles, but Champions League glory belongs to Barcelona tonight.
