The last four game was a clash between two coaches heading to the United States of America (USA) after the end of the season.

Barca’s Jonatan Giraldez is heading to the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) while Chelsea coach, Emma Hayes will join the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT).

It was also the sixth straight semi-final appearance for FC Barcelona, equaling German side, Wolfsburg’s record in the competition.

After losing the ball in Barcelona's half, Chelsea capitalised on the error with good team play to open the scoring.

The goal was the Chelsea captain's third in eight UWCL games this season.

A few minutes into the second half, the host thought they had had the chance to level the scoreline when referee Stephanie Frapart pointed to the spot for a handball by Kadeisha Buchanan.

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) called her to check after Salma Paralluelo's offside as the penalty was canceled.

Hayes' side surmounted second half pressures from the Catalan side to take a slim away lead to the return leg in Stamford Bridge on April 27, 2024.

Meanwhile…

The second semi-final match will take place later this evening between two French sides.
