AS Roma qualify for Women’s Champions League group stage: When is the draw?

AS Roma have made it past Vorskla and they are into the Women's Champions League group stage for just the second time, but when will the Giallorosse learn their three opponents?

-

AS Roma Women have reached the group stage of the 2023/24 Women’s Champions League thanks to their 9-1 aggregate win over Ukrainian side Vorskla. Due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, both legs were played at the Stadio Tre Fontane in Rome.

The Giallorosse all but secured their safe passage to the group stage in the first leg with a 3-0 victory, the goals coming from Evelyne Viens, Manuela Giugliano and Valentina Giacinti.

The second leg proved an even more straightforward result for the Italian champions, winning 6-1 on the day. It was just 1-0 at half time though, and Vorskla did equalise early in the second half. Roma‘s goals were scored by Evelyne Viens, Barbara Latorre, Lucia Di Guglielmo (two), and two own goals from Yana Kotyk.

When is the 2023/24 Women’s Champions League group stage draw?

With AS Roma making it to the group stage and Juventus being knocked out in an earlier qualifying round by Eintracht Frankfurt, there will just be one Serie A Femminile representative in the main part of the competition.

Sixteen teams have managed to reach this stage and they will be divided into four different groups of four. The holders, Barcelona Femeni, as well as direct entrants Lyon, Bayern Munich and Chelsea, did not need to go through any qualification rounds. They are the Pot One teams, meaning Roma will be facing one of them.

They will be joined by the 12 teams, of which Roma is one, who won at least one two-legged tie to get to the group stage.

The draw is scheduled to take place at 13:00 CEST on Friday, October 20.
