This Friday morning the Womens A team found out who their first opponents will be in the UEFA Women's Champions League. Barça, who this morning  posed for the official photo session for UEFA, will face the Czech team, SK Slavia Prague.

First leg in Prague and return leg in the  Miniestadi

This will be the third participation in the Womens Champions League for Xavi Llorens team, who were seeded for the first time. The tie against Slavia Prague will be played on the 8th or 9th of October, in Prague, and on October 15th or 16th at the Miniestadi. Regarding their opponents, the Barça coach Xavi Llorens said: "The only reference that we have on SK Slavia Prague is that last year they faced Zurich, who knocked them out after two very even matches".  It’s worth remembering that Zurich was one of the Barça opponents last season. "It will be a hard-fought tie, but we have a good chance to go through. If we do that, we will probably play against an English team that has signed well and will be very strong" added the coach about the possible last 16 opponents

If they go through to the last 16, Barça will play the tie on 8/9 of November and 12/13 November, against the winner of the tie between Raheny United and Bristol Academy. The Final will be played in Berlin, just like the men's competition, but in this case on May 14th.

Sunday at the Camp Nou

Moreover, the Womens A team will show off to the fans at the Camp Nou this Sunday the trophies for the League and the Queen's Cup, that they won last season. Following this, they’ll watch the Barça v Elche match from the Directors Box
