Slavia Praha Czech Republic 1 Germany Bayern Munich 20–21 Mar 27–28 Mar
Barcelona Spain 2 Norway LSK Kvinner 20–21 Mar 27–28 Mar
Lyon France 3 Germany VfL Wolfsburg 20–21 Mar 27–28 Mar
Chelsea England 4 France Paris Saint-Germain 20–21 Mar 27–28 Mar

Bayern with the best of the draw.

Barcelona didn't get Prague but they got Lillestrøm, so they'll be pleased too.

Chelsea and PSG will be an interesting and cagey one. If Chelsea are healthy and locked and loaded then PSG are in over their heads, but if they're on form and Chelsea are still underachieving could punch through.

The Lyon/Wolfsburg tilt is the pure heavyweight division.

Wolfsburg are 8-0-0 in league and Lyon are 9-0-0, both the only teams in the leagues to not give up a point.

Wolfsburg have players like Popp, Goessling, Fischer, Gunnarsdóttir, Dickenmanm, Peter, Pajor, Minde, Baunach, Graham Hansen, and Harder.

Lyon have Bouhaddi, Bronze, Renard, Buchanan, Mbock, Kumagi, Henry, Marozsán, Fishlock, Le Sommer, and Hegerberg.

Truly sensational. Praying that one is streamed and a game not to be missed. The World Cup may not have a game with as much talent or as entertaining.
