💫 UWCL: Harder wins it for Chelsea, Madrid hit FIVE past Breidablik
The UEFA Women’s Champions League continued on Wednesday and there were some scintillating fixtures on matchday two.
Here’s what went down.
Harder secures big Blues win
Scorers: Bonansea 37′; Cuthbert 31′, Harder 69′
Chelsea secured their first Champions League win of the season after edging past Juventus in Turin.
After Juventus’ bright start, Chelsea wrestled back control and took the lead thanks to a wonderful solo effort from Erin Cuthbert.
But the hosts netted a shock equaliser just before half-time Barbara Bonansea volleyed home Lisa Boattin’s inch perfect cross.
Pernille Harder secured all three points after being quickest to react inside the penalty box before firing past Pauline Peyraud Magnin.
Møller hat-trick inspires Real Madrid
Scorers: Møller 6′, 20′, 43′, Olga 47′, Navarro 88′
Real Madrid look set to secure back-to-back wins in Group B after leading Breidablik.
Las Blancas took the lead after just six minutes when Caroline Møller was played through by Kenti Robles before finishing clinically.
Møller doubled her tally from close range shortly after, before securing her first half hat-trick with another smart strike past Telma Ivarsdóttir.
Olga García added the fourth just two minutes after coming on as a half time substitute, before Lorena Navarro completed the scoring late on.
Huitema hat-trick inspires PSG to easy win
Scorers: Huitema 25′, 32′, 42′, Dudek 59′, Khelfi 88′.
Jordyn Huitema bagged a first half hat-trick as PSG ran riot at the Stade Jean-Bouin.
The Canadian forward shrugged off her market before storing into the box and placing the ball in at the near post to get the hosts off the mark.
Huitema was then on hand to react to Ramona Bachmann’s shot which rebounded off the bar to head home before poking in from four yards out to cap off a perfect first 45 minutes.
Paulina Dudek made it four with a glancing header from a corner before Léa Khelfi rounded off the rout in the dying minutes.
Wolfsburg hit Servette for five
Scorers: Huth 18′, Waßmuth 26′, 43′, Janssen 51′, Smits 68′.
Wolfsburg picked up their first win of the group stage after thrashing Servette Chênois.
Svenja Huth took advantage of some sloppy Servette defending to fire home the first goal from inside the area before Tabea Waßmuth fired in from inside the six yard box from a corner.
Waßmuth grabbed a second just before half-time and the rout continued after the break with Dominique Janssen blasting in after being a ricochet fell into her path from another corner.
Joëlle Smits wrapped up the three points for the Frauen-Bundesliga side with a curled finish into the bottom corner after a well-worked counter attack.
