This week's games include the return of the UEFA Women's Champions League, as well as matches from Germany, France, Spain, and England.

A very closely contested title race and the final four of the UEFA Women's Champions League are among the matches fans will not want to miss over the next few days. 

Here's all you need to know ahead of another week in women's football.

What to watch in women's football: April 19th to April 21st


Matchday five of the 2024 NWSL season starts on Friday, April 19th with Orlando Pride vs San Diego Wave. Both teams will naturally be aiming for all three points - the Pride recently picked up their first win of the season after narrowly edging out Utah Royals 1-0 while the Wave have yet to find their footing following a frustrating scoreless draw with Racing Louisville. Other key games taking place this round include Washington Spirit vs NY/NJ Gotham, which will be shown on TV on CBS and live streamed on Paramount+ for fans in the United States, as well as Angel City vs North Carolina Courage, which will be shown on CBS Sports Network.


The semi-finals of the 2023/24 UEFA Women's Champions League will kick off on Saturday, April 20th, and there are two mouth-watering clashes in store. First up is Barcelona and Chelsea, which will be live streamed on DAZN USA for fans based in the United States. Keep in mind, though, this match has a really early kick off (especially for viewers based on the West Coast) as it starts at 7.30 am EST (4.30 am PST), but given the history of both teams in this competition, it is safe to say many fans will not mind getting up bright and early to tune in.

The action continues later on Saturday with an all-French affair starring Lyon and PSG at 1 pm EST (10 am PST). That match is also set to be live streamed on DAZN USA, and also is sure to be a great one especially given Lyon's status as the all-time holders of the UWCL as well as PSG's overall impressive performances in this competition this season.


Things are really starting to get very interesting in the battle for the WSL title. At the moment, Chelsea, who are the reigning champions, have reclaimed top spot - but only just. The Blues are joint-tied with Manchester City on 46 points and are only ahead of the Cityzens due to a slightly better goal difference. However, Emma Hayes's team are not involved in WSL action until next month, which means that Manchester City, who will face West Ham on Sunday, have a great chance to leapfrog the Blues into top spot.

Elsewhere, Arsenal, who are in third place and six points behind the top two sides, will naturally look to keep up some modicum of pressure on both Chelsea and Manchester City by pushing for all three points against Leicester City. Meanwhile, Manchester United will be looking to regain some momentum when they host Tottenham, but could find this to be a tricky tie as Spurs come into that game having won their last two WSL matches on the trot.

What to watch in women's football: April 22nd to April 25th


The latest round of Frauen-Bundesliga matches will conclude on Monday, April 22nd as league leaders Bayern Munich welcome Werder Bremen. Fans based in the USA can live stream that match on DAZN USA.

D1 Féminine

Moving on to France, there are plenty of D1 Féminine matches taking place midweek. A total of six matches are on tap on Wednesday, April 24th, with one highlight including an all-Parisian derby featuring PSG vs Paris. Although eight points separate second placed PSG from third placed Paris, both teams will have plenty of play for in this match. Elsewhere, league leaders Lyon will be certainly fancying their chances at continuing their march towards the league title when they host a Guingamp side who are barely just above the drop zone.

Liga F

Meanwhile, Levante Las Palmas vs Barcelona is also another match taking place in Europe on Wednesday, April 24th. Given the fact that the Blaugrana are once again cruising along in Liga F and have won all but one of their 23 league matches this season, it is safe to assume that the reigning Liga F champions should have no issues taking care of things here. Still, given that Barcelona will be involved in continental action in the UWCL just a few days prior - it will be interesting to see if their match against Chelsea will have any impact on player fitness heading into this contest.
