Bayern Munich Reaches Women’s Champions League Semifinals

MALMO, Sweden: Bayern Munich will face Chelsea in the semifinals of the Womens Champions League after dispatching Swedish club Rosengrd 1-0 on Thursday.

Lea Schller headed in from Carolin Simon’s cross in the 22nd minute as Bayern advanced 4-0 on aggregate over two quarterfinal legs.

Barcelona reached the final four by eliminating Manchester City on Wednesday. The Spanish side awaits either five-time defending champion Lyon or Paris Saint-Germain, whose quarterfinal second leg was moved to April 18 after a coronavirus outbreak in the Lyon squad. Lyon leads 1-0.

Chelsea advanced by eliminating two-time champion Wolfsburg. The final is scheduled for May 16 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Tyres was the last Swedish team to reach the semifinals, in the 2013-14 season.
