A superb strike by Sweden international Hanna Glas gave Bayern Munich a 2-1 win over Chelsea in the first leg of their UEFA Women’s Champions League semifinal on Sunday.
Bayern took an early lead thanks to a rare mistake by Chelsea’s German keeper Ann-Katrin Berger, who failed to deal with a routine cross and left Sydney Lohmann to pounce and head home in the 12th minute.
Chelsea drew level 11 minutes later through Melanie Leupolz, but the former Bayern midfielder knew little about it as an attempted clearance deflected off her and flew into the net.
Early in the second half, Bayern full-back Glas ran at her Sweden team mate Jonna Andersson, forcing her onto the back foot before curling a magnificent shot into the top-right corner to put the German side back into the lead.
