The hosts are making their first appearance in the knockout rounds, while the Blues are competing in the last eight for the third time in four seasons.

Not content with their work in qualifying, Ajax managed to successfully negotiate a tough group to become just the second Dutch side to reach the quarter-finals after Saestum previously achieved the feat in 2006-07.

Suzanne Bakker’s side won three and drew one of their six group matches (L2) to finish ahead of Bayern Munich and Roma and just behind group winner Paris Saint-Germain on goal difference.

Ajax have been presented with a tough draw against the reigning English champions, but they will fancy their chances of gaining a first-leg advantage after winning all three of their home group matches against PSG, Bayern and Roma.

They will also carry significant momentum into Tuesday’s contest, having won each of their last eight competitive matches, including a 5-1 victory in Thursday’s KNVB Women’s Cup game against their own reverse side.

Emma Hayes has won every domestic trophy available during her successful 12-year tenure as Chelsea manager, but she has been unable to secure the Champions League title during her stay in West London.

With the Chelsea boss set to leave at the end of the season, she has one final chance to go all the way in European competition after her side eased through the group stage.

Chelsea won four and drew two of their six matches to finish three points clear at the top of Group D, setting up a quarter-final tie with Ajax and a potential semi-final encounter with either Barcelona or Brann.

Having won all of their previous four quarter-final appearances, the Blues will be favourites to overcome Ajax over the next two legs, especially with home advantage in their favour for the return match on March 27.

The Blues will certainly travel to the Netherlands in a positive mood after they claimed a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in Friday’s domestic clash, with a Lauren James effort and a Sjoeke Nusken brace proving enough to secure all three points and keep Chelsea above second-placed Manchester City on goal difference.
