Chelsea - Lyon: time, TV channel... Match info

The defending champions are back to the wall after giving in to Chelsea in the quarter-final first leg of the Women's Champions League. If they don't want to take the door, victory this Thursday, March 30 is imperative.

Lyon, in women's football, is a real monument. With eight European championship titles, the French club appears as the big favorite every year. Since 2010, Lyon have only missed the semi-finals of the Champions League three times. It was in 2014, 2015 and 2021. But the Lyonnaises fell last week at home. On March 22, they lost 1-0 at home. This small disappointment does not put them in the best conditions for this return match Thursday, March 30. To survive in the competition, they will have to struggle against the more than convincing Chelsea Blues. The English have, in 2023, against French clubs, a more than positive record by overcoming the first two teams of the French Championship (PSG in the group stage).

The champions, however, have the answer and the character. They will be in London, led by their Norwegian star Ada Hegerberg who has returned after six months of absence. Barely returned, the attacker already seems operational. Last Saturday, she distinguished herself by scoring a goal in the victory against Guingamp (6-0). "This is just the beginning," she announced in a video addressed to supporters. Sonia Bompastor, the Lyonnaise coach knows that her presence on the pitch could change the face of the match. "We know the importance she has in the group. She is a leader. It is important to have her. She is delighted to have been able to score as soon as she comes back, it gives her confidence as well as to us", commented the technician before the meeting at a press conference.

The second women's match of this Women's Champions League quarter-final can be watched on DAZN's YouTube.

At Chelsea Emma Hayes is expected to make two changes. One will be in defense with Eriksson taking the place of Bright. The second will be in attack with Flemming who will come out of the eleven at the expense of Cuthbert. In Lyon, the formation will be identical except in attack or the 2018 Golden Ball, Ada Hegerberg will animate the offensives of Gones supported by Malard and Cascarino.
