Arsenal have drawn Paris St. Germain Féminine in the quarter-final of the Women’s Champions League. The tie will take place during the last week of March and first week of April, with the semi-finals taking place a month later. If Arsenal win their quarter-final, they will play the winner of defending champion and record six-time winner Lyon and Bayern Munich, which will probably be Lyon.

Paris St. Germain will undoubtedly be the toughest tie Arsenal have had to date, as Fiorentina were dispatched with relative ease, and Slavia Praha were comprehensively beaten 13-2 on aggregate, with the home leg an 8-0 win for Arsenal. PSG, once the home of Tobin Heath and Lindsey Horan, have consistently been runners-up to Lyon, though they closed the gap to just five points last season.

While not as star-studded as Lyon, PSG have a strong squad, featuring Nadia Nadim and Marie-Antoinette Katoto in attack, the outstanding Sara Däbritz in midfield, and Chilean keeper Christiane Endler.
