Chelsea blown away by Barcelona in Champions League final

A first-half blitz by Barcelona ended Chelsea's dreams of European glory as well as the opportunity to claim four trophies in one year. The Blues were a goal down within the opening minute of the Champions League final in Gothenburg.

It was 3-0 inside 20 minutes and 4-0 before half-time. That was the end of the scoring but the Women's Super League champions failed to find a foothold against their Spanish counterparts.

Barcelona are the first team from Spain to win the Women's Champions League and become the first club to claim both the men's and women's version of Europe's biggest trophy.

For Chelsea, it is still a season to savour having won both the domestic title for a second year running and the Continental Tyres League Cup. 

And they can still target a domestic treble with their last match of the campaign being an FA Cup fifth round tie against Everton on Thursday night. The remaining rounds of this year's FA Cup will be completed when the new campaign starts in the autumn.
