Women's Champions League: Chelsea 3-1 Montpellier (5-1 agg)

Ramona Bachmann celebrates scoring for Chelsea
Switzerland's Ramona Bachmann scored her second goal in this season's Champions League

Chelsea Ladies made the semi-finals of the Women's Champions League for the first time after beating Montpellier 5-1 on aggregate with a 3-1 win at home.

Fran Kirby gave Chelsea the perfect start as she finished well on the break, but Sofia Jakobsson levelled as what seemed like a cross looped in.

Ramona Bachmann put the tie beyond the French side soon after the break as she curled in Kirby's through ball.

Kirby sealed it from the penalty spot after Ji So-yun was fouled in the box.

Chelsea will face Wolfsburg in their last-four clash after a 1-1 draw at Slavia Prague sent the Germans through 6-1 on aggregate.

It will be the third successive season that the two clubs have met in the Women's Champions League - Wolfsburg beat Chelsea in the first round last season and the second round in 2015.

The result keeps alive the possibility of an all-English final, with Manchester City beating Swedish side Linkoping 5-3 to go through 7-3 on aggregate. They face defending champions Lyon in the other semi-final.

Progression for both English clubs ensured there will be two British representatives in the semi-finals for the first time.
