While Chelsea and Arsenal have UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-finals this weekend, BWSL title rivals Manchester City welcome West Ham.

Arsenal travel to Wolfsburg but have already sold 45,000 tickets for the second leg at the Emirates on Monday 1st May, Chelsea play Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime with another large turnout expected.

Manchester City will go second in the Barclays Women’s Super League if they beat West Ham, while Brighton, Reading and Spurs all battle against the drop with only two points separating the bottom four, of which Leicester City are last.

Bristol City will clinch the Championship title if they beat fourth-placed Charlton Athletic at Ashton Gate, for which over 5,000 tickets have been sold. Promotion would all but be theirs before kick-off should Birmingham City be beaten at Durham in their second meeting in four days, with London City Lionesses’ chances no more than a mathematical possibility.
