Chelsea will be hoping to complete the UEFA Women’s Champions League group stage with an unbeaten record when they face Paris FC at Stade Charléty this evening.

The Blues have recorded three wins and two draws from their five group stage matches to date and Emma Hayes’ side have already secured their place in the quarter-finals.

Paris FC head coach Sandrine Soubeyrand has good squad availability ahead of her side’s latest match. Virtually every player has been involved in the squad in the last two matches. Paris FC should go into the match with fresh legs with head coach Soubeyrand having rotated her squad for the game against Le Havre at the weekend. On loan Chelsea defender Alsu Abdullina will again be permitted to play against her parent club this evening.

Chelsea manager Hayes has taken an 18-player squad with her to Paris. Ann Katrin-Berger and Melanie Leupolz both miss the match while The Blues remain without the services of Aniek Nouwen, Millie Bright, Catarina Macario, Kateřina Svitková and Sam Kerr. Recent signings Mayra Ramírez and Nathalie Björn have not been registered for the group stage.

Chelsea’s UEFA Women’s Champions League group stage fixture against Paris FC kicks-off at 5.45pm this evening.
