Chelsea bring the curtain down on our UEFA Women’s Champions League Group D campaign with a short hop across the Channel to face Paris FC on matchday six tomorrow (Tuesday).
Victory against Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge last week secured our passage into the quarter-finals as group winners with one game to spare. The Blues travel to the French capital looking to protect our unbeaten record in the group phase.
As for our opposition, Paris FC sit third in Group D and are still in with a chance of qualifying for the knockout stage. They will need to win on Tuesday night and hope that second place BK Hacken don’t beat bottom side Real Madrid who have failed to qualify themselves.
