In between our first meeting with Lyon last week and today’s match, Chelsea Women endured a tough 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Women’s Super League that was hopefully a “wake up call” to the team ahead of another important match for their aspirations this season.
We do have the 1-0 advantage from the trip to France, and the home turf as well in this second leg. May they be a further boost to manager Emma Hayes and the women in blue, with the former opting for a strong lineup to match such a big occasion.

Berger | Périsset, Buchanan, Eriksson (c), Carter | Leupolz, Cuthbert, Charles | James, Kerr, Reiten
