Resilient Chelsea edge past PSG



Chelsea secured a big victory in their bid to qualify for the Champions League quarter finals with a 1-0 win over PSG at the Stade Jean-Bouin on Thursday evening.

A first half Millie Bright goal saw the Blues to victory over last season’s beaten semi finalists as the west London outfit turned in a resilient, disciplined performance.

Chelsea took the lead just before the half hour mark, Bright giving Èlisa de Almeida the slip from a corner and volleying home Erin Cuthbert’s delivery at the back post.

Kerr saw an effort deflected narrowly wide thanks to an important De Almeida intervention following a flowing team move in the second half as the Blues pushed for a second.

PSG really started to go for it in the final 25 minutes, with Kadidiatou Diani moving into the central striker role and stretching the Chelsea backline.

She had two sightings of goal in the space of 10 minutes, first calling Ann-Katrin Berger into action after working an inch of space for herself, and then firing narrowly over from the edge of the box.

But a resilient Chelsea held firm to secure a vital three points in their particularly tough Champions League group
