Chelsea line up Lionesses showdown in Champions League last 16

Women's Super League leaders Chelsea will play Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League, with Spanish-based Lioness stars Toni Duggan and Jade Moore returning to England for the tie.

The Blues will be at home for the first leg in early March before travelling to Spain a week later, if coronavirus restrictions allow. If not, UEFA will have to find a neutral venue.

Atletico have knocked Manchester City out in both of the last two seasons, so City were relieved to be drawn against Fiorentina. Like Chelsea, City's first leg will be at home.

Holders Lyon will play Brondy of Denmark, whilst last year's runners-up Wolfsburg will play Norwegian club LSK Kvinner.
