UEFA Women's Champions League holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, Olympique Lyonnais, FCR 2001 Duisburg, Zvezda-2005, Linköpings FC and FCF Juvisy Essonne are through to the quarter-finals after completing round of 16 victories on Wednesday.
The two remaining places in the 19 November draw are filled on Thursday, when Arsenal LFC attempt to overturn a 2-0 deficit at home to Rayo Vallecano de Madrid and Everton defend a 4-1 lead against visitors Brøndby IF.
Fortuna Hjørring 0-3 FCR 2001 Duisburg (agg: 2-7)
Fortuna harboured hopes of progressing after a good first-leg showing in Germany but were up against it when Stefanie Weichelt scored her first European goal, turning in Femke Maes's 32nd-minute free-kick. Weichelt had another two minutes into the second half after a ball from deep, and although Fortuna pressed, substitute Mandy Islacker added to her first-leg strike with the third a minute from time.
SV Neulengbach 0-9 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam (agg: 0-16)
Six players found the net as the holders overwhelmed Neulengbach for the second time in a week. Yuki Nagasato stole the show with a second-half hat-trick after Fatmire Bajramaj had struck twice in three minutes midway through the first period, her second coming direct from a corner. Inka Wesely, Jennifer Zietz and substitutes Anja Mittag and Marie-Louise Bagehorn were also on target.
Olympique Lyonnais 5-0 FC Rossiyanka (agg: 11-1)
Last season's runners-up remain on course to go one better after a second comfortable win against the Russian champions. Eugénie Le Sommer's 22nd-minute penalty built on their 6-1 win last week and in the second half Anna Kozhnikova's own goal was swiftly added to by Sonia Bompastor and Lara Dickenmann. Sandrine Brétigny completed the scoring late on.
Zvezda-2005 4-0 Røa IL (agg: 5-1)
Zvezda avenged their defeat by Røa at this stage last season with a straightforward victory in Perm. Following a 1-1 first-leg draw, Dyatel set the ball rolling on 24 minutes with a powerful shot after a pass from Daria Apanaschenko. Maria Ruiz increased the lead with 20 minutes remaining before turning provider for Apanaschenko to head past Caroline Knutsen. Maria Dyachkova rounded off the scoring in added time.
AC Sparta Praha 0-1 Linköpings FC (agg: 0-3)
Linköping continue their bid to emulate Umeå IK in taking the European title to Sweden after a narrow second-leg win. Kosovare Asllani, Maria Karlsson and Louise Fors took the game to Sparta and their 15-year-old goalkeeper Barbora Majerová, given permission to register by UEFA in the absence of four injured custodians. Lucia Ondrušová, Lucie Heroldová and Iva Mocová threatened at the other end but on 63 minutes Asllani turned in Fors's free-kick having been brought down by Petra Vyštejnová.
FCF Juvisy Essonne 2-2 Torres (agg: 4-3, aet)
Leading 2-1, the hosts seemed to be cruising into the last eight when Laëtitia Tonazzi opened the scoring early on. Second-half efforts from Sandy Iannella and Silvia Fuselli, the latter's coming with ten minutes remaining, took the tie into extra time, however, where Tonazzi's second of the night edged Juvisy through.
