With two Westfield Matildas in the mix and on opposite sides of the draw, an all Australian final is still on the cards. 

Before that however, Chelsea and Sam Kerr have to contend with 2019-20 finalists VfL Wolfsburg. Pernille Harder will come up against her old side for a spot in the semi finals. 

The teams have met in this competition before, most recently in the 2017-18 semi finals with the German outfit winning 5-1 on aggregate. 

Based on league standings, the sides are pretty evenly matched with Chelsea top of the FA WSL and Wolfsburg sitting second in the Frauen Bundesliga.

This tie will take place in Hungary due to Covid border restrictions in Europe. The winner will take on one of Bayern Munich or Rosengard. 

On the other side of the draw Ellie Carpenter's Lyon will face PSG in an all French quarter final.

PSG have endured a dramatic week or so with their round of 16 tie affected by positive COVID-19 cases, firstly in their opponents camp and then in theirs. The French side ultimately progressed through 5-3 on aggregate. 

Lyon and PSG were meant to face off in the league two weeks ago but the match was postponed due to the positive Covid cases.
