Eight-time Women's Champions League winners Olympique Lyonnais Féminin are always a thorn on the side of their opponents, no matter their form. Chelsea are well aware of that since in their first CL encounter, the French outfit beat the Blues 3-2 in the aggregate score to advance to the continental competition's final.
Now meeting for a second time, we hope the winds to favour our claim for a semifinal berth. Doing so will require playing our best at their best, and that is what manager Emma Hayes is doing today with her selection.
