Chelsea will play Ajax of the Dutch in the Women’s Champions League quarterfinals.
The only remaining British team in the competition is Emma Hayes’ squad.
March 19–20 is the first leg of the quarterfinal match in Amsterdam, while March 26–27 is the second leg in London, one week later.
In the semi-finals, Chelsea will play the winner of the match between holders Barcelona and Norwegian team Brann, should they defeat Ajax.
Paris St-Germain takes on Hacken, while Lyon plays Benfica in the other two quarter final matches. Chelsea would be the official home team if they advanced to the May 25 final in Bilbao, Spain, where they would face either Benfica, Lyon, Hacken, or Paris St. Germain.
After winning Group D, Chelsea advanced to the quarterfinals ahead of French team Paris FC, Spanish team Real Madrid, and Swedish runners-up Hacken.
Having won four and drawn two of their six group stage matches, the London team is undefeated in this season’s competition.
Prior to leaving the team to take charge of the US national team, Blues manager Hayes will be aiming for trophies in her last season there.
Chelsea might play Barcelona again in the semi-finals this season after they eliminated them from the tournament last year.
Chelsea had its greatest season in the competition in 2020–21, making it to the final before falling to Barcelona 4-0 in Gothenburg.
