WSL Women’s Champions League Quarter-Final Second Leg Preview

WSL Women’s Champions League Quarter-Final Second Leg Preview

WSL teams Arsenal and Chelsea will gear up for the second legs of their Champions League games against Bayern Munich and Lyon, respectively.

Chelsea will enter the second leg as the more confident of the two WSL teams. Not only did the Blues beat Lyon in the first leg by a score of 1-0, they also have the home advantage. Chelsea have a great opportunity to progress to the semi-finals – but reigning champions Lyon can never be taken lightly.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have it all to do in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich. They were defeated by a score of 1-0 in the first leg, despite enjoying most of the play. They will have the home advantage, though – the Gunners need to make sure it counts for something.

Elsewhere, Barcelona will play Roma, after beating the Italian team 1-0 in the first leg. As one of the favourites to win the tournament, Barcelona will be expected to progress here – but you can never count Roma out of a Champions League tie.

Finally, the last Champions League quarter-final tie will see Wolfsburg take on PSG. The Parisians have plenty of work to do in the second leg, as not only are they 1-0 down, they’ll also be away from home. Can they turn the tables on the German giants?

The Women’s Champions League has not been won by an English team since 2007, when Arsenal took home the trophy. Will the feat be repeated this year? Or will the WSL be bereft of European silverware for another campaign?
