Chelsea FC Women must overcome the challenge of French club Paris Saint-Germain Feminines if they are to reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League for a second consecutive season.
The Blues beat Fiorentina 7-0 on aggregate in the last 16 to qualify for the quarter-finals of this season’s competition.
The draw for the last eight took place earlier today and it has been determined that Chelsea will face French club PSG over two legs in the quarter-finals. The home leg will take place at Kingsmeadow on either 20 or 21 March while The Blues will travel to France for the return fixture on 27 or 28 March.
Should Chelsea successfully negotiate their way beyond PSG, they will arguably face one of the two best teams in the competition in the semi-finals. Emma Hayes’ side would take on the winners of the Lyon v VfL Wolfsburg tie. Both of those clubs contested last season’s final with German club VfL Wolfsburg knocking Chelsea out of the competition at the semi-final stage.
The Blues know that if they were to reach the final, they would face Slavia Prague, Bayern Munich, Barcelona of LSV Kvinner in a showpiece which would see two clubs feature at that stage for the very first time.
