Juventus 1-2 Chelsea: Player ratings – Women’s Champions League

Chelsea secured their first Women’s Champions League win over the season but were made to work hard for it by a dogged Juventus side playing in front of more than 16,000 fans in Turin.

Having rescued a late draw against Wolfsburg on matchday one, Chelsea dominated the ball against the Italian champions, who were looking to spring an upset.

Juve battled hard in midfield throughout and delivery into the penalty area from both full-backs asked plenty of questions of the Chelsea back three.

Emma Hayes’ team got what was probably a deserved lead when Erin Cuthbert drove at the heart of the Juve defence and finished low past ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin.

But that lead lasted only a few minutes when Barbara Bonansea perfectly timed a run into the box and turned in a volleyed finish to equalise.
