Juventus and Roma make history in Women’s Champions League

Juventus and Roma have qualified for this season’s Women’s Champions League, making history as Serie A sends two clubs to the competition for the first time.

The Bianconere booked their place in UEFA’s premier club competition after beating Danish side Koge in the play-offs yesterday, winning 3-1 on aggregate across the two legs. They joined the Giallorosse, who also progressed through the playoffs after securing a clear 4-1 win over Slavia Prague.

The qualification of the two Italian teams means this season’s Women’s Champions League is the first time that two Serie A sides will compete in the competition in a season, showing the growth of women’s football in Italy.

The draw for the Women’s Champions League group stages will take place on Monday October 3, when Juventus and Roma will know their opponents for this season’s competition. 

The Giallorosse currently sit second in the Serie A table after four games, one point behind league leaders Inter. The Bianconeri sit a little lower in fifth, picking up eight points from two wins and two draws.
