The first half of Chelsea Vs Man United Women’s Continental League Cup semi-final was incredibly entertaining, with numerous goals scored as both teams made sure to get something excellent under the 45-minute mark.
Chelsea scored the opening goal after Pernille Harder raced past a Red Devil player and made sure she took advantage of her opportunity to make the score 1-0 for the Blues, who now have the lead going forward.
Another goal came in the 31st minute from Jessie Fleming, whose finish was perfectly placed beyond the goalkeeper as the game turned 2-0. The home side continued to dominate on the pitch, creating more chances.
In the 32nd minute of the first half, Man United Women equalized through an amazing effort from Vilde Boee Risa, who beat the goalie from an absurd angle to make the score 2-1 as things were looking well for both teams on the pitch.
Chelsea Vs Man United Women concluded the first half with a 3-1 scoreline as the visitors went down even deeper in the 39th minute through a lovely finish from Jessica Carter who made no mistake as she hammered one in for the Blues as they headed for the break with a 3-1 scoreline.
The second half of the match was a cagey affair, with both teams doing well enough to deny each other from scoring, with more credit going to both teams’ defenders and goalkeepers over the 45 minutes.
More chances between Chelsea Vs Man United Women as the game progressed without anything else happening save a squandered opportunity going forward that couldn’t be converted into a goal that would have brought the supporters so much delight to witness in the stadium.
After a nasty tackle that left the referee with no choice but to send the offender off the pitch in the 77th minute of the second half, Man United Women’s player Sophie Baggaley was issued a straight red card, leaving them to finish the game with ten men.
That’s how things ended, with Chelsea Women defeating Manchester United Women 3-1, advancing the Blues to another Continental League Cup final, where they might win the trophy once more while they await the results of Manchester City vs Tottenham.
