FCR 2001 Duisburg and holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam were among nine teams to progress from the UEFA Women's Champions League round of 32 on Wednesday.
Potsdam held a 9-0 lead over Finnish debutants Åland United ahead of a home second leg which they won 6-0, with six different scorers. In the round of 16 on 3/4 and 10/11 November they will play SV Neulengbach, who overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit with a 3-0 win against PAOK FC thanks to a hat-trick from Nina Burger.
Duisburg also prevailed 6-0 at home, Inka Grings matching her first-leg feat with four goals in an 11-0 aggregate defeat of Kazakhstan's CSHVSM. They now take on 2003 runners-up Fortuna Hjørring, who, having produced an impressive 8-0 first-leg win against CF Bardolino Verona, triumphed 6-1 in the return.
Icelandic teams have traditionally outperformed Spanish sides in women's club competitions but Rayo Vallecano de Madrid's 3-0 triumph over Valur Reykjavík last month sent them to Iceland on top. Their reward for a 1-1 second-leg draw and 4-1 overall success looks like being a meeting with 2007 champions Arsenal LFC, who defend a 3-1 lead at home to ŽFK Mašinac on Thursday when seven remaining ties conclude.
Russia's Zvezda-2005, runners-up to Duisburg in 2009, matched their 2-1 first-leg victory against Apollon Limassol LFC. They will now hope to reverse an away-goals defeat by Røa IL in the last 16 last season, the Norwegian side advancing past Zorka-BDU 2-1 on aggregate.
Brøndby IF, 2-1 victors in the first leg, edged past RTP Unia Racibórz on away goals after losing the home return 1-0. They will discover their opponents tomorrow, as will Italy's Torres, who beat FC Zürich Frauen 3-2 and 7-3 on aggregate.
