Fiorentina Women have been pitted against Chelsea Women in the Champions League round of 16.

The Viola will travel to London for the first leg on 17 October (20:35 CEST kick-off) before hosting the English champions at the Franchi for the return leg on 31 October (19:30 CEST).

The first leg is sandwiched between the Italian Super Cup against Juventus and the Serie A fixture away to Chievo.

Viola boss Antonio Cincotta was under no illusions about the size of the task facing his side: "It's a tough draw against one of the best teams in the world. It's an opportunity for us to learn something and see how we measure up against the cream of Europe."

Chelsea won the English league title in 2015, 2017 and 2018. They have played in the UEFA Women’s Champions League every season since 2015/16 and were knocked out by Wolfsburg on all three occasions (last 16 in 2015/16, last 32 in 2016/17 and the semi-finals in 2017/18).
 
Here is the full draw:

Zurich Frauen v Bayern Munich
Wolfsburg v Atletico Madrid
Ajax v Olympique Lyonnais
Barcelona v Glasgow City
Linkopings v Paris Saint-Germain
Chelsea Women v Fiorentina Women
Rosengard v Slavia Praha

Kvinner v Brondby
