ANDl Real Madrid will host Manchester City and I raised Olympique Lionnais in the first leg matches of the second preliminary round of the women’s soccer Champions League, according to the draw held by UEFA.
The City was the rival that the draw gave, in principle, to Arsenal, but the regulations prevented two teams from the same country from being paired in this round, so it was necessary to resort to another ball for the London team, which will play the first leg in home against Slavia Prague.
The draw yielded the pairings of the 24 teams that aspire to get the last 12 places for the group stage with the champion, Barcelona, Paris SG, Bayern Munich and Chelsea, which are already classified directly.
The first leg matches, in the fields of the teams mentioned in the first place, will be played on August 31 and September 1, and the return matches on September 8 and 9. The draw for the composition of the groups will be held on September 13th.
