Chelsea Women v Barcelona Femenino: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Chelsea produced a surprise 1-0 win in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, but the hard work is far from done as they look to reach the final in Emma Hayes' final season in charge.

Chelsea Women v Barcelona Femenino betting tips and predictions

Barcelona to qualify in 90 minutes - 5/6

Hayes' career at Chelsea will end in a few weeks when she leaves to become the manager of the USA Women's team, and there is one prize she would like more than any other before she leaves the London club.

It is three years since her team lost 4-0 to Barcelona in the Champions League final in Gothenburg, a disastrous night on which they fell to four first-half goals.

Now, having lost to Barca 2-1 on aggregate in last season's semi-finals, the Women's Super League champions have another chance for revenge and head into Saturday's Stamford Bridge clash having gained a 1-0 advantage from the first leg.

However, they still face a huge task to claim their place in the final in Bilbao on Saturday 25th May, and Barca look a good bet to turn the tie around without the need for extra-time.

Their loss to Erin Cuthburt's goal is the first time the holders have been beaten in 16 matches in this competition, and their goalscoring statistics are frightening.

They have scored 106 goals in 24 league games this season and conceded just eight times, and they have a habit of getting on the scoresheet early in this competition.

Before the first leg, they had scored a goal in the first 20 minutes in six of their eight Champions League outings, and the Blues can expect an early bombardment.

They netted in the fourth minute when they gained a first-leg advantage at Chelsea last season and will look to be proactive again, allowing them to build the foundation to grab a second goal later on that would take them to another final.

Aitana Bonmati to score at any time - 21/10

Barcelona have an embarrassment of striking riches with Norway forward Caroline Graham Hansen and Spain's Salma Paralluelo leading the La Liga Femenina goalscoring charts with 17 apiece, but one player who could make her mark at Stamford Bridge on Saturday is midfielder Aitana Bonmati.

She has helped herself to four goals in the Champions League this season and is never afraid to have a pop at goal, registering 24 goal attempts in the competition.

The first leg was the first game in this year's UWCL that she has failed to have a shot on target, but Chelsea know all about her abilities after she scored in that 4-0 win in Gothenburg three years ago and she could represent some value in the anytime goalscorer market.

Over 10 corners - 6/5

Barcelona have it all to do as they look to claw back that one-goal deficit and it seems likely the defending champions will be positive from the first whistle.

They should attack in wide areas and that means there could be plenty of corners in the game, especially judging on how many the Spanish league leaders have forced so far.

The holders have had 80 in their nine Champions League games this season and look likely to eclipse the five they had in the first leg significantly as they chase the game, making it sensible to predict that there will be more than ten corners in Saturday's rematch.
