Is Chelsea vs Wolfsburg on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Women’s Champions League fixture

Chelsea face Wolfsburg in their quarter-final second leg

Chelsea will be protecting a one-goal lead from the start, but a huge performance is required if they are to hold off Wolfsburg and reach the Women’s Champions League semi-finals.

A 2-1 first-leg victory puts the Blues in the driving seat, but they’ll still be looking to find the back of the net as the away side, given the attacking prowess they possess with the likes of Sam Kerr and Fran Kirby. At the other end, manager Emma Hayes is hoping for a resolute showing.

“We are winning the game at half-time, but they have the experience of being in this position,” she said. “Defensively, we need to do all the fundamentals at the levels that are needed for this type of game.”

Wolfsburg were beaten finalists of this competition last year and will be hoping to go one better this time around, but it will still be tough to overcome the Women’s Super League leaders on neutral territory in Hungary.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
