Dates, times, TV channels and streaming of the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-finals
The UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-finals are set to start with a pair of tantalizing match-ups for the fans.
First up is a loaded Barcelona Femini side which includes stars Alexia Putellas and Jennifer Hermoso taking on a historically large Wolfsburg women’s side which includes several Germany internationals such as Sara Doorsoun, Tabea Wassmuth and captain Alexandra Popp.
Barcelona star Lieke Martens will sit out as his injury-battered campaign continues to wane with a hamstring problem, but a white-hot Putellas carried the side to the semi-finals, with three goals in the two-legged quarter-final win over Real Madrid.
Then, on Sunday, a star-studded side from Lyon Feminin take on bitter French rivals PSG Feminine. Several French international stars line up on both sides of the pitch in this game, including Wendie Renard, Amadine Henry, Kadidiatou Diani and Grace Geyoro. American internationals Catarina Macario and Lindsey Horan will also be on the pitch, both for Lyon.
Macario and Ada Hegerberg both scored key goals in both quarter-final wins over Juventus to lead Lyon into the last four in comeback fashion, while Switzerland international Ramona Bachmann’s goal at the 112th minute in the second leg gave PSG the thrilling victory over Bayern Munich in the previous round. .
