Malmö, Göteborg and Potsdam prevail

FC Malmö, Göteborg FC and 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam have completed the last-eight lineup, joining Olympique Lyonnais, 1. FFC Frankfurt, Arsenal LFC, Brøndby IF and FC Rossiyanka.

Two-time winners 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and Swedish pair FC Malmö and Göteborg FC completed the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final lineup on Thursday.

They join holders Olympique Lyonnais, Potsdam's fellow former winners 1. FFC Frankfurt and Arsenal LFC plus Brøndby IF and FC Rossiyanka in the draw for the remainder of the competition in Nyon next Thursday at 12.30CET. The quarter-finals are on 14/15 and 21/22 March, the semi-finals on 14/15 and 21/22 April and the final in Munich on 17 May.

Göteborg FC 3-2 Fortuna Hjørring (agg: 4-2)
European debutants Göteborg made the most of the lead they took back from Denmark last week to oust the 2003 runners-up. Just like in the first leg Göteborg got an early goal, Johanna Almgren striking on two minutes. Göteborg were on top and in the 66th minute Lisa Ek converted a penalty after Fortuna's Janne Madsen had fouled Ingvild Stensland, who made it 3-0 soon after. With 11 minutes to go Madsen pulled one back and Lisa-Marie Woods further reduced arrears in a strong Fortuna finish.

FC Malmö 1-0 SV Neulengbach (agg: 4-1)
Malmö ensured Sweden will have two quarter-final representatives for the first time since 2004/05 with a dominant performance. Manon Melis found the target on 23 minutes to cap a prolific year for the Damallsvenskan winners and the Austrian visitors were never able to put the home side under pressure. Malmö's Caroline Seger controlled the midfield and hardly made a mistake.

Glasgow City LFC 0-7 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam (agg: 0-17)
Potsdam's 10-0 first-leg win had made this a formality against the first Scottish side to get this far. Chantal de Ridder pounced on a loose ball outside the box to get last season's runners-up going on five minutes and Anja Mittag hooked in the second soon after. Kerstin Demann got the third with a looping shot and late in the half De Ridder, who had set up that goal, rounded Lee Alexander to make it four.

Just past the hour Mittag became competition's leading scorer on seven goals with a cool finish. Substitute Stefanie Draws got the next after a Tabea Kemme run and cross and Isabel Kerschowski headed in a corner in the last minute to leave Potsdam one goal short of the competition record aggregate win, but in the last eight alongside compatriots Frankfurt, who they visit on Sunday aiming to keep their three-point Frauen Bundesliga lead.
