Suzanne Bakker’s team ended in second place in poule C. This means the opponent will be the number one from poule A, B, or D. Ajax will for sure meet one of these three opponents: Barcelona, Olympique Lyon or Chelsea.
Barcelona is the title holder of the Women’s Champions League. They made it to the tournament's quarterfinals nine times before, winning six times. The Spanish team won the Champions League twice in their club's history.
Chelsea reached the quarter-final by finishing on top of the poule with Real Madrid, BK Häcken, and Paris FC. The English champion has never won the European tournament but reached the final in the 2020/2021 season.
Olympique Lyon is the most successful club in the Women’s Champions League. The French team won the tournament eight times. Last season, they were eliminated by Chelsea in the quarter-final.
First match at home
The quarterfinals will be played on March 19 and 20 and March 26 and 27. The Ajax Women will play the match at home.
