Arsenal will face eight-time winners and current holders Lyon in the women’s Champions League group stage.

Women’s Super League (WSL) holders Chelsea will play Real Madrid, who knocked out Manchester City in the qualifiers, and last year’s semi-finalists Paris St-Germain.

Arsenal, the only English side to win the competition, will also play Juventus and Zurich in Group C.

Last season’s runners-up Barcelona play against Bayern Munich, Rosengard and Benfica.

European debutants Roma are in a group with two-time winners Wolfsburg, Slavia Prague and St. Polten.

After regaining the Champions League trophy with a 3-1 win over Barcelona in last year’s finalFrench league winners Lyon are the team to beat.

But Arsenal, who reached the quarter-finals last year, also have Italian champions Juventus to compete with if they are to reach the knockout rounds.

England’s Lucy Bronze and Keira Walsh will face compatriot Georgia Stanway as Barcelona take on Bayern Munich, with the trio of Euro 2022 winners having moved away from the WSL – leaving former club City – this summer.

Chelsea will be hoping to put last season’s Champions League woes behind them when they missed out on the knockout rounds after being held to a head-to-head goal difference tie-break with Juventus and Wolfsburg.

The group stage will be played between 19 October and 22 December.

This season’s final will take place at PSV Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands, on either 3 or 4 June 2023.
