1. FFC Turbine Potsdam will feature in the UEFA Women's Champions League semi-finals after dispatching ASD Torres CF 4-1.

The outcome of this quarter-final was more or less a formality after Potsdam's crushing 8-0 success in Italy. Torres showed plenty of resolve, though, responding to going 2-0 down through midfielder Giulia Domenichetti. The hosts then introduced Ada Hegerberg, who registered twice ahead of a last-four date with holders VfL Wolfsburg.

An evenly balanced contest changed dramatically when Asano Nagasato collected Genoveva Anonma's fine pass and found the net, before Lia Wälti doubled the advantage five minutes later. Torres nonetheless continued to probe and were rewarded as Domenichetti kept her composure to score.

Still, the German side were in no mood to relent as Hegerberg swept beyond Arianna Criscione on the turn after taking receipt of Pauline Bremer's pass. A Patrizia Panico header then elicited an excellent stop from Ann-Katrin Berger, while Maren Mjelde went close at the other end. Hegerberg made no mistake with five minutes remaining, however, as Potsdam took their place in the next round at a canter.
