Chelsea will play VfL Wolfsburg once again in the UEFA Women's Champions League after the draw was made at UEFA Headquarters today.
The two teams met each other in the Round of 16 last season with Wolfsburg beating the WSL Champions 4-1 on aggregate over the two legs.
Neither of the two English teams taking part in the competition were seeded in the draw and Manchester City, who will take their first steps into the Champions League, have been paired with Russian side WFC Zvezda-2005. Both Chelsea and Manchester City will be at home in the first leg of their ties.
Glasgow City - who are seeded - have not been handed the easiest of draws either, as they must play Swedish League runners-up Eskilstuna Utd. City will be away in the first leg whilst Hibernian, who also make their debut in the competition, have a baptism of fire against Frauen Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich.
Breidablik, who emerged as winners from the qualifying group hosted by Cardiff Met Ladies last week, also have a plum tie with Swedish Champions FC Rosengard.
Dates and kick off times for the ties are to be confirmed but the matches will be played on either 5/6 October and 12/13 October.
