Arsenal have been paired with Barcelona in the UEFA Women's Champions League Round of 32 draw.
Although they carried off the Spanish League title last season, Barcelona do not have the record and history of their men's team but the two names alone are bound to attract a lot of interest in the tie. The first leg will be played in Barcelona with Arsenal hosting the return and there is a tough reward for the winners with a potential last sixteen tie against FFC Turbine Potsdam.
Birmingham City's first ever venture into Europe has seen them not draw an easy tie either. Dave Parker's side will have to take on Italian Champions ASD CF Verona, with the first leg being played at Stratford on 26th September. If the Blues make it through, they could possibly play Swedish side WFC Malmo for a place in the quarter finals.
The draw has not been a kind one for Glasgow City either as they take on former finalists Fortuna Hjorring, hosting the first leg. A potential mouthwatering tie against Gothenburg is on offer if City are able to repeat their achievement of last season, when they reached the last sixteen.
Holders Olympique Lyonnais have drawn PK-35 Vantaa of Finland whilst WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo, winners of the group which included Cardiff Met Ladies, must play Sparta Prague. FC Zurich, whose side includes German star Inka Grings, have an intriguing tie with FCF Juvisy of France whilst Apollon Limassol are paired with ASD Torres Calcio.
