PREVIEW: Chelsea v Bayern Munich

Chelsea will look to overturn a 2-1 deficit from their UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final first leg tie against Bayern Munich when the pair meet in the second leg at Kingsmeadow on Sunday.

The Blues suffered a rare defeat last weekend when they were beaten by Bayern at the FC Bayern Campus Platz 1 and manager Emma Hayes knows that her side must be much better in the second leg back on home soil if they are to progress to the final.

Chelsea will again be without Norwegian defender Maren Mjelde who has been ruled out of action for the remainder of the season through injury. Manager Hayes remains tight-lipped over whether centre-back Magda Eriksson will be fit with the player having struggled with a knock for the last couple of weeks.

Bayern Munich head coach Jens Scheuer has no new injury concerns to contend with following his side’s first leg victory. The German club remain without the services of Jovana Damnjanović, Giulia Gwinn, Ivana Rudelić, Carina Schlüter and Kristin Demann through long term injury.

Chelsea’s UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final second leg tie against Bayern Munich is scheduled to kick-off at 12.30pm on Sunday and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.
