…… Kick-off time, how to watch live and more!
Chelsea Women will be looking to maintain our unbeaten record in Europe when Paris Saint-Germain come to Stamford Bridge for the final matchday of the UEFA Women’s Champions League group stages on Thursday evening.
The Blues return to Stamford Bridge one month after hosting Tottenham Hotspur in the Women’s Super League in November, and we will feature in European competition at the Bridge for the first time since our meeting with Wolfsburg in 2016.
With the 4-0 victory over Vllaznia in Albania on matchday five, we secured our passage to the knockout stages of the competition. Goals from Sophie Ingle, Fran Kirby, Katerina Svitkova and Maren Mjelde saw us over the line with one game to spare.
We top the Group A with 13 points from 15 available having won four and drawn one of our five matches to date, accumulating a +15 goal difference. PSG come into the game sitting second, three points behind us and with a goal difference of +9, putting us in control as we aim to win the group.
Tickets for the game are still available to purchase starting at just £9 for adults and £1 for concessions.

We have continued our proud unbeaten record in Group A this season, which began with an impressive victory away at PSG on matchday one. Consecutive victories and clean sheets followed against Vllaznia and Real Madrid, the latter then holding us to a draw on matchday four.
A controlled 4-0 victory away to Vllaznia on matchday five sealed our place in the knockout phase, but the job is not done and we will look to win the group on Thursday night before we take a break for the festive and New Year period.
As for PSG, they sit second in the group after recording a crucial 2-1 victory against Real Madrid last time out, which confirmed their qualification for the knockout stage. They have 10 points from 15 available with three wins, one draw and one defeat from their five matches to date.
They have scored 11 goals during this time, conceding just two in the process which leaves them with a +9 goal difference. The Parisians will need to beat the Blues by two goals or more to claim top spot in the group.
Chelsea Women vs PSG Women recent head-to-head record
We began our European journey with a trip to the French capital to face PSG on matchday one back in October, having been handed tough opposition in the draw which placed us in Group A.
However, it was the perfect start to our group stage campaign. We emerged 1-0 victors thanks to a thoroughly professional all-round display at the Stade Jean-Bouin.
Victory this week would be the icing on the cake, seeing us maintain our unbeaten record in the competition this season and progressing to the knockout phase as group winners.
Next up for the Blues
The match against PSG will bring down the curtain on the first half of the season, as we take a break from football for the festive and New Year period.
We return to domestic action with an eagerly-anticipated London derby against Arsenal in the Women’s Super League on Sunday 15 January 2023.
Kick-off at the Emirates Stadium is scheduled for 12pm and the match has been selected for live broadcast on Sky Sports.
