Chelsea women team have been drawn to face Fiorentina in the last 16 of the Women’s Champions League.

The women could be said to be on the high side as the men’s team are currently participating in the Europa League.

It can be recalled that the female team who are the FA Women’s Super League champions lost to two-time winners Wolfsburg in the semi-final stage of the competition last season.

They’ll be hoping to progress beyond that stage this term but must first overcome the Fiorentina challenge.

Fiorentina are a decent side and also won the Serie A Women title in the 2016/17 season.

However, they failed to defend the title last season and finished 17 points behind league winners Juventus Women.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Women currently occupy the fifth position on the WSL log after playing four games.

Their adventures in Europe is also another chance for them to land a major trophy this season if the Arsenal Women team who are in a rich vein of form prove difficult to catch in the WSL.
