The quarter-final draw for the UEFA Women's Champions League took place today in Nyon, where Juventus Women, who qualified as runners-up in the group with Wolfsburg, Chelsea and Servette, will face Lyon.

The other draws pitted Bayern Munich against PSG (the winner of this match will meet the winner of Juve - Lyon in the semi-finals), Barcelona and Real Madrid and Arsenal and Wolfsburg.


The French topped their group by finishing above Bayern Munich, Benfica and Bollklubben Häcken. For the seven-time European champions, their journey began with a 3-0 win at Bollklubben Häcken with goals from Malard, Macario, and an own goal by Larsen. On matchday two, they claimed a 5-0 victory over Benfica (Buchanan brace, and goals from van de Donk, Malard and Macario) before continuing their winning run over Bayern in the first leg.

Lyon's only defeat in the group came in the return leg against Bayern, which was then followed by two victories: 5-0 against Benfica with a brace from Ada Hegerberg and goals from Renard, Mbock Bathy and Bruun and 4 -0 triumph over Bollklubben Häcken.

Few will forget that Juve and Lyon crossed paths last season in UWCL. The first historic match at the Allianz Stadium in Europe was played against the French side, with the Bianconeri suffering a 3-2 defeat, despite putting on a terrific display that saw them take the lead twice. However, the return leg proved to be a tough one in the rain as the then defending UWCL champions won 3-0.

On a domestic front, OL handed over the throne to PSG last year after 14 consecutive league titles won, while this year they top the table with three points above the Parisians.

The first quarter-final will be played in Turin on 23 March, kick-off at 18:45, while the second leg will see the Bianconere travel to France on 31 March, kick-off at 21:00 CET.
