Chelsea Women 0-0 Hacken Women: Blues held to frustrating draw

Sam Kerr shoots as Chelsea play Hacken
Chelsea have drawn two of their three Champions League games so far this season

Chelsea could not make the most of a dominant performance as they were held to a frustrating Champions League draw by Hacken.

The Blues were twice denied by the woodwork and enjoyed the vast majority of the ball but lacked a cutting edge in the final third.

Sam Kerr had a goal disallowed after she drifted offside before heading a Lauren James cross into the back of the net.

Hacken were well-organised and managed to smother most of the Women’s Super League leaders’ attacking efforts.

Erin Cuthbert came agonisingly close to putting the Blues ahead in the first half when her first-time drive ricocheted downwards off the crossbar and bounced away from the goalline.

Kerr also nodded a second-half Guro Reiten corner onto the bar.

Chelsea had 71% of the possession and 22 shots to Hacken’s six, but were unable to make the most of their control.

Emma Hayes’ side are now second in Group D with five points from three games.

Hacken, who remain unbeaten, top the group on seven points.

Real Madrid, whose only point so far came from a draw with Chelsea in their opening game. are bottom after they were beaten 2-1 by Paris FC in the group’s earlier game.
