Women’s Gallery: Final preparations in France

On the eve of one of the biggest games in the history of Chelsea Women’s team, when we take on Lyon, the holders and five-times Champions League winners, in this year’s semi-final, the team have trained in the venue for tomorrow’s first leg.

The game, which kicks off at 4pm UK time on Sunday afternoon and is live on Chelsea TV and The 5th Stand, is taking place in Lyon’s main Groupama Stadium, the venue for this summer’s Women’s World Cup final and semi-finals. It also staged games in the men’s Euro 2016 and last season’s Europa League final.

Here is our pick of today’s training images…


- The second leg takes place on Sunday 28 April at Kingsmeadow with a 2pm kick-off and Chelsea are offering free tickets to our junior and senior fans. For all other supporters, entry will be £6 and can be purchased via our online ticketing or on the day.
