Chelsea Women vs Paris FC Women odds
*Odds correct as of 21:00 on November 20
Emma Hayes is in her final season as Chelsea manager, leaving at the end of the campaign to take over the United States Women’s national team. The Champions League is the one trophy to have eluded her, so there will be more hope of success this year. Chelsea started their group stage last week with a 2-2 draw against Real Madrid in very controversial circumstances. Leading 2-1 with just over 10 minutes to go, Chelsea conceded a penalty for a foul by Jessie Fleming that was soft and also shown to be outside the box. The Blues then had a winning goal in injury time disallowed for an offside, with Sam Kerr deemed to be obstructing the view of the goalkeeper from an offside position as Niamh Charles converted.
Paris FC, meanwhile, are back in the Champions League proper for the first time under their current guise, last appearing in 2012/13 as FCF Juvisy. Last season they bowed out in the qualifying stages, but there would be no such heartbreak this time around with a couple of big names toppling. In the first qualifying round, Paris FC beat Ukrainian side Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih 4-0 before knocking out Arsenal on penalties. In the second qualifying round there was a 5-3 aggregate victory over last season’s runners-up Wolfsburg. But the group stage started in defeat, with Paris FC falling 2-1 at home to BK Hacken, sitting bottom after one game. They will have another scalp in their sights, however.

Chelsea Women vs Paris FC Women match tip
Chelsea are unbeaten across all competitions this season, winning six and drawing two of their eight games so far. At the weekend, they beat Liverpool 5-1, showing both sides of their game. They were ruthless in attack but conceded through a lapse of concentration that led to Jess Carter bundling the ball into her own net. The Blues have kept just three clean sheets in their eight games across all competitions this season, and have conceded in each of their last four games at Stamford Bridge.
