Chelsea are looking to continue a sensational season by sealing their first ever Champions League trophy and taking one step closer to an unprecedented quadruple on Sunday.

Emma Hayes’s side have already clinched the League Cup and Women’s Super League titles this season but victory in Europe would be their greatest achievement in a remarkable campaign.

Only Arsenal in 2007 have won the Women’s Champions League before, but Barcelona – also searching for a maiden European crown – stand between Chelsea and history in Gothenburg, Sweden.
