The first leg of the Women’s Champions League quarter-final between PSG Women and Wolfsburg Women will occur on Tuesday.
PSG is a team that has come close to winning the trophy on two previous occasions, but this year they are determined to bring it home.
In the group stages, PSG performed well by winning three games and drawing one out of six matches. However, they could not secure the top spot, finishing six points behind group winners Chelsea.
PSG’s recent performances at home have been impressive, with seven consecutive victories in all competitions since their 2-2 draw with Montpellier in November. During this period, they have kept five clean sheets, demonstrating their defensive strength.

Wolfsburg has had an impressive run, winning four, drawing two of their six group games, and progressing through the group stage without a single defeat.
Wolfsburg has reached the competition’s quarter-finals before. They have made it to this stage in the last 11 seasons, which is remarkable.
Although they suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim at the beginning of March, they have bounced back with two consecutive victories, scoring nine goals and conceding just one.
Wolfsburg has been powerful when playing away this season. They have not lost a single away match, winning 12 out of 13 competitive games and scoring at least two goals in each of those victories.
