If there is one thing about Sonia Bompastor’s side to know, its that they have the kind of quality to overcome this deficit if they’re at their best. Scoring goals certainly isn’t an issue for the team who put six past their opposition just days ago in league play.

The key to this game could be injuries, or one major injury return. Chelsea Women’s top defender Millie Bright suffered an injury during the previous leg and currently shows no signs of returning. For Lyon, they are welcoming back Ada Hegerberg who scored this past week and reminded everyone of her abilities.

While the home side should have enough of an edge to come away with the overall victory, the absence of Bright and return of Hegerberg could flip the script.
