Chelsea draw Ajax in Champions League quarter-finals
Chelsea have been drawn to play Ajax in the Women's Champions League quarter-finals.
The Blues must negotiate a two-legged tie with the Dutch side to set up a fascinating semi-final with Barcelona, should the Spanish side beat Brann.
Eight-time champions Lyon take on Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain play Hacken for a spot in the other semi.
The Women's Super League leaders went unbeaten in the group stage of the competition and will be favourites to overcome their Amsterdam-based opponents, who did not win any of their away matches in Group C.
And Barca would likely await in the final four, presenting Emma Hayes' side the chance to inflict revenge on the team that beat them at the same stage last season, as well as 4-0 in the 2021 final.
Hayes will depart West London to take charge of the US national team at the end of the campaign and is still in contention to bow out with a historic quadruple.
The first leg of each last-eight clash will take place on March 19 and 20 with the reverse matches played on March 27 and 28.
The semi-final ties will be played across the weeks of April 20-21 and 27-28.
The final will be played in Bilbao on Saturday, May 25.
