Holders Lyon face Chelsea in Women’s Champions League quarters

Holders Lyon were handed a tie with English WSL leaders Chelsea in the quarter-finals of this season’s Women’s Champions League as the draw for the last eight and the semi-finals was made on Friday.

Chelsea, who topped their group ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, will travel to France for the first leg with the tie to be played in late March.

Arsenal, who are currently third in the WSL, will play Bayern Munich with the winner of that tie advancing to a semi-final against either PSG or Wolfsburg in late April.

Chelsea or Lyon will play either 2021 winners Barcelona or Roma in the other semi-final.

This season’s final will be played in the Dutch city of Eindhoven on June 3.
