The UEFA Women's Champions League semi-final lineup will be confirmed on Wednesday night after the remaining last-eight second legs are completed.

FCR 2001 Duisburg, who won the final UEFA Women's Cup last season, are already through after a 2-0 win at Arsenal LFC on Sunday ensured a 4-1 aggregate win. They look set to meet German rivals 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, who travel to Røa IL holding a 5-0 lead over the Norwegian side.

Just as that semi-final could be an all-German affair, the other could be between two French rivals. Olympique Lyonnais will go to Italian side ASD Torres Calcio 3-0 up while Montpellier Hérault SC welcome two-time European champions Umeå IK following a goalless first leg in Sweden.

Getafe CF's Coliseum Alfonso Pérez will be the venue for the final at 20.30CET on Thursday 20 May, the one-off showpiece an innovation for the new competition, decided two days before the men's UEFA Champions League final. That means Lyon remain in contention to complete a unique double in the space of 48 hours in Madrid come May.
