At the half-way mark in the group stage of the UEFA Women’s Champions League, it’s a great time to reflect on how the competition has been so far.
Chelsea and Barcelona have both started an extremely impressive campaign, as they are the only teams to win all their games so far.
The Blues’ winning streak has placed them top of Group A, with a collection of 11 goals- the second highest total so far. Sam Kerr and Guro Reiten are key players in this squad, with Kerr finding the net 4 times, whilst Reiten assisted 4 times.
Paris and Real Madrid are currently both on 4 points- after a win, draw and loss- but Paris just scrape second, which would see them through to the next stage.
Vllaznia trail behind on no points.
Two wins and a draw comfortably place Wolfsburg and Roma top of Group B.
Arsenal replicate the 7 points total in Group C, which makes them current leaders of the pack. A draw against the Gunners on Thursday sees Juventus closely in second with 5 points.
The tightness in this group is exciting, as everything can change in the next few games, as Lyon have 1 less point than Juventus.
Barcelona are stand out winners in the final Group, with a 100% win streak. As a team they have scored the highest amount of goals in this stage, which is an impressive 16 goals- the majority of the goals came from their astonishing 9-0 victory over Benfica.
Bayern prove to be strong contenders too, with 6 points. However, Benfica and Rosengard trail behind with 3 points and none.
As it stands, the eight teams that are through are:
FC Bayern Frauen
Do you think all of these eight clubs will make it through?
With the next round of matches commencing with Rosengard against Benfica on Wednesday 7th December, all is still to play for.
