What do you need to know?

Wolfsburg edged a nervy first leg 1-0 at Parc des Princes thanks to a Dominique Janssen penalty, after Élisa de Almeida had been dismissed for the handball that conceded it. Her suspension is bad news for a Paris team already missing defenders Paulina Dudek and Amanda Ilestedt due to injury.

On top of that, Jackie Groenen was helped off during Sunday's game with Montpellier, another potential blow for a side dealing with Marie-Antoinette Katoto's long-term absence.

All three European games between these clubs have been away wins, after both legs of their 2014/15 semi-final ended similarly, and Paris need that run to continue if they are to progress as they did eight years ago.

Another positive omen for Paris is that the only previous time they lost a first leg at home in this competition, they went on to win the tie: against Lyon in the 2020/21 quarter-finals, a success that ended their French rivals' five-year reign.

On the other hand, Wolfsburg have never gone out in Europe after winning the first leg of a knockout tie. However, their 1-0 weekend loss at Bayern, more comprehensive than the scoreline suggests, knocked Wolfsburg off the top of the Bundesliga.

View from the camps

Tommy Stroot, Wolfsburg coach: "All the players are fit for action, which means I'm spoiled for choice ... I don't think [the 1-0 lead] matters that much at the beginning. Maybe in small details, like how high the full-backs are or if they play with a six or two tens. We expect that they will think a bit more offensively than in the first leg. But they won't force it from the start.

"Depending on how the game goes, there will be different scenarios - maybe they will go 'all in' at some point. We also have to have solutions that we can stab at these moments. We have the qualities, that's a huge advantage. And we also have the qualities to take the lead and put Paris under even more pressure."

Gérard Prêcheur, Paris coach: "We know the rules, the stakes ... Everything is played out over two matches. The first leg didn't go the way we wanted it to in terms of the scoreline. But now we have at least 90 minutes to turn things around.

"The big positive is that we played a good game in the first leg. It wasn't enough, but there were mitigating circumstances. We were able to analyse that we still have a lot of room for improvement tactically, and - we'll see tomorrow - mentally."

Sakina Karchaoui, Paris defender: "In every position, we played well as a team [in the first leg] and I have no doubt, if we repeat that, that we can reach the semi-finals.”
