Chelsea Manager Emma Hayes aims to win the Champions League title after an electrifying game against Lyon. The Blues booked their place in the competition’s semi-finals in a nail-biting penalty shootout after Maren Mjelde’s goal from the spot in the eighth minute of added time. With Lyon, last year’s champion, and the record eight-time winners of the tournament, Chelsea accomplished a giant-killing, leaving audiences at Stamford Bridge with a spectacle to behold.
Despite losing some of her players to injury, including England defender Millie Bright, Hayes remained confident and praised her squad’s character-building and resilience throughout the match. Goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger’s heroic two stunning saves to deny Wendie Renard and Lindsey Horan were the perfect end to the game.
As Chelsea advance to face Spanish giants Barcelona in the semi-finals, Hayes aims to finally lift the trophy that has eluded her throughout her managerial career.
