The Australian captain earned the foul which won her side a penalty. Her team mate Pernille Harder slotted it past the 'keeper. 

Five minutes later, Kerr doubled Chelsea's advantage. After receiving the ball, surrounded by green shirts, she spun and got away a low shot which was too good for the Wolfsburg goalkeeper. Fran Kirby rounded things out in the 81st minute.
