Wednesday's UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final first leg between VfL Wolfsburg and FC Rossiyanka has been shifted to the VfL Wolfsburg Arena (kick-off 18.00CET).

Wolfsburg's regular venue for women's fixtures, the VfL Stadium, is unplayable due to recent bad weather. The Arena, home to Wolfsburg's Bundesliga team, is equipped with a pitch heating system and the snow and ice in the stands and around the playing area will be removed. Both teams will train on Tuesday at the training ground next to the stadium. The return will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
