Potsdam, Duisburg, Lyon, Arsenal in semi-finals

Holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam will face FCR 2001 Duisburg for the second year running after Wednesday's results also set up a semi-final between Olympique Lyonnais and Arsenal LFC.

For the second year running, German rivals FCR 2001 Duisburg and 1. FC Turbine Potsdam will meet in the UEFA Women's Champions League semi-finals, which also throws together Olympique Lyonnais and Arsenal LFC.

Duisburg were succeeded by Potsdam as European champions last season, having fallen in the last four to Turbine on penalties. They will have the chance to avenge that reverse when they welcome the Frauen-Bundesliga title winners on 9/10 April before travelling east the following weekend.

Potsdam completed a 9-2 aggregate victory against FCF Juvisy Essonne with a 6-2 second-leg win, while Duisburg followed their 3-1 away defeat of Everton with a 2-1 home success.

Lyon, meanwhile, are a step closer to going one better than last term's final loss to Potsdam, which was also on spot kicks, in Getafe after defeating visitors Zvezda-2005 1-0 on the night and overall. In the first leg they will be at home to Arsenal, who, having been held 1-1 in London by Linköpings FC last week, came away from Sweden with a 2-2 draw and an away-goals triumph. In 2007/08, Lyon knocked out then holders Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

The final will be at Fulham FC's Craven Cottage in west London on 26 May. Tickets are available from Fulham's website at £3 (€3.50) for under-16s and £5 (€5.90) for adults.
