Chelsea Ladies suffered a heavy home defeat in the first leg of their round of 32 Women’s Champions League tie with Wolfsburg.

In their first ever match at Stamford Bridge, which drew a 3,783-strong crowd, Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by last year's finalists Wolfsburg after Zsanett Jakabfi scored a hat-trick.

The Hungary international scooped the ball over Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl to open the scoring on 12 minutes before heading in the second while unmarked six minutes before the break.

Jakabfi completed her hat-trick early in the second half from a counter-attack, leaving the Blues with a mountain to climb ahead of the return leg in Germany on October 12.
