Draw guide

  • Montpellier striker Sofia Jakobsson is set to face former club Chelsea, the only team in the quarter-finals for the first time.
  • Also taking on her old club is Linköping's Kosovare Asllani, as they face Manchester City.
  • If holders Lyon can get past 2016/17 semi-finalists Barcelona, the French champions could again meet the side they beat in the last four a season ago, Manchester City (since when Lucy Bronze has gone to Lyon and Pauline Bremer had joined City).
  • The other semi-final could match Chelsea with the team that ended both their previous campaigns, two-time champions Wolfsburg.
