Is Lyon vs Chelsea on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Women’s Champions League

Chelsea face another tricky test when they take on the reigning European champions, Lyon, at Stamford Bridge on Thursday for the second leg of their Women’s Champions League quarter-final.

Emma Hayes’ side take a slight advantage into the game after winning 1-0 in France last week thanks to Guro Reiten’s first half strike.
The Blues come into the match on the back of a 2-0 loss to Manchester City in the Women’s Super League but they are in impeccable form at home this season having won all 12 of their home fixtures across all competitions.

The first leg was a closely contested affair with both teams creating chances on goal without dominating the game so expect more of the same tonight.

The winner will face Barcelona in the semi-finals after the 2021 champions thrashed Roma 5-1 at the Nou Camp, sealing a 6-1 win on aggregate.

When is Chelsea vs Lyon?

The match will kick off at 8pm BST on Thursday 30 March at Stamford Bridge, London.
