The UEFA Women's Champions League round of 32 seconds legs are played on Wednesday and Thursday.

Lyon began their bid for an unprecedented fourth straight title with a 2-0 win at Avaldsnes while in the first legs two weeks ago. Juventus played their first ever European match, taking the lead and then coming from behind to draw 2-2 with Brøndby thanks to two Barbara Bonansea goals.

Among other winners were 2018 runners-up Wolfsburg and semi-finalists Chelsea. Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern München also hold advantages, but Barcelona lost 3-1 at BIIK-Kazygurt in Kazakhstan, but might yet be grateful for Toni Duggan's away goal, while a late deflected strike gave Atlético a draw with Manchester City.
