Even yet, a draw away from home in Madrid was viewed as a win, paving the door for a fierce matchup with Paris FC.
The Women’s Super League leaders showcased their dominance domestically, maintaining an unbeaten record with six wins and a draw from seven games.
Their latest triumph was a commanding 5-1 home win over Liverpool, where forward Lauren James stole the spotlight with a remarkable hat-trick. Chelsea’s prowess has been evident, and they are poised to translate their domestic success into a triumphant European campaign.

On the other side, Paris FC has experienced a mixed bag of results. While they secured victories against Kryvbas and Arsenal in the qualifiers, their group stage journey began with a 2-1 home loss to Hacken.
