Important to know

Wolfsburg edged a nervy first leg 1-0 at Parc des Princes thanks to a Dominique Janssen penalty after Élisa de Almeida had been dismissed for the handball that conceded it. Her suspension is bad news for a Paris team already missing defenders Paulina Dudek and Amanda Ilestedt due to injury.

On top of that, Jackie Groenen was helped off during Sunday’s game with Montpellier, another potential blow for a side dealing with Marie-Antoinette Katoto’s long-term absence.

All three European games between these clubs have been away wins, after both legs of their 2014/15 semi-final ended similarly, and Paris needs that run to continue if they are to progress as they did eight years ago.

Another positive omen for Paris is that the only previous time they lost a first leg at home in this competition, they went on to win the tie: against Lyon in the 2020/21 quarter-finals, a success that ended their French rivals’ five-year reign.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg has never gone out in Europe after winning the first leg of a knockout tie. However, their 1-0 weekend loss at Bayern, more comprehensive than the scoreline suggests, knocked Wolfsburg off the top of the Bundesliga.
