Holders Lyon were handed a tie with English WSL leaders Chelsea in the quarter-finals of this season’s Women’s Champions League as the draw for the last eight and the semi-finals was made on Friday.
Chelsea, who topped their group ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, will travel to France for the first leg with the tie to be played in late March.
Lyon won the Champions League for a record eighth time last season, defeating Barcelona in the final, but they came second to Arsenal in their group this season, losing 5-1 at home to the Gunners.
Arsenal, who are currently third in the WSL, will play Bayern Munich with the winner of that tie advancing to a semi-final against either PSG or Wolfsburg in late April.
Chelsea or Lyon will play either 2021 winners Barcelona or Roma in the other semi-final.
This season’s final will be played in the Dutch city of Eindhoven on June 3.
