The first legs will be played on 4-5 October, with the seeded sides at home for the second legs on 11-12 October.

England right-back Lucy Bronze's new side, holders Lyon, who are bidding for a record fifth European title after winning back-to-back Champions League crowns, start their campaign against Polish side Medyk Konin.

Elsewhere, Spanish league winners Atletico Madrid were drawn against German champions Wolfsburg, who knocked out Chelsea in both of the past two seasons.
