Bristol Academy and Glasgow City will both face stiff opposition in the quarter finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League.
Academy face the difficult task of travelling away in the first leg to play twice European Champions FFC Frankfurt whilst Glasgow City face one of the toughest and most glamorous ties, drawing French giants Paris Saint Germain, playing at home in the first leg.
Frankfurt have an outstanding record in the competition and brushed aside Italian side AS Torres Calcio in the last round. Their side has featured former Academy midfielder and Wales captain Jessica Fishlock, who is currently on loan with the German giants from Seattle Reign.
The well renowned French side meanwhile defeated two time former winners, and four time finalists in the last five years, Olympique Lyonnais in the last sixteen and will present City with one of their biggest ever challenges in Europe's most elite club competition. Both British teams are appearing in the quarter finals for the first time in their history.
Commenting on the draw, City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: "At this stage of the competition you are always expecting a tough tie. There was never going to be an easy game in the quarter finals of the Champions League. What I can say is that it is good for travel, we will get plenty information on them and what an exciting game for any player to have at any stage of their career.
"There is no doubt we are massive underdogs in the tie, but as PSG proved in the last round sometimes underdogs can win. It is a massive game for our club and also for our game and home City and hopefully one which Scotland can embrace and get behind us in numbers."
The ties are set to be played on 21/22 and 28/29 March and ticket details for the home legs are set to be announced shortly.
