#ContiCup: Last group games being played this midweek

Conti Cup quarterfinalists to be confirmed

The final round of FA Women’s Continental League Cup group games takes place this midweek with some quarter-final berths still to be confirmed.

Conti Cup ties – Wednesday 11 December

Group A – Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers (Boldmere St Michaels FC, 8pm)
Liverpool v Durham (Tranmere Rovers FC, 6.30pm)
Sheffield United v Coventry United (Chesterfield FC, 7.30pm)

Group B – Arsenal v London Bees (Boreham Wood FC, 7.30pm)
Charlton Athletic v Bristol City (VCD Athletic, 7.45pm)
London City Lionesses v Brighton & Hove Albion (Dartford FC, 7.30pm)

Group C – Birmingham City v Manchester United (Solihull Moors FC, 7.30pm)
Leicester City v Everton (Quorn FC, Thursday 7.45pm)

Group D – Chelsea v Reading (Kingsmeadow, 7pm)
Tottenham Hotspur v Lewes (Barnet FC, 7.30pm)
West Ham United v Crystal Palace (Rush Green Stadium, 7.30pm)

Chelsea are already through from Group D and they host second-placed Reading, who West Ham could overtake with victory against Crystal Palace.

Arsenal’s goal-difference means they are virtually certain to progress from Group B, Brighton & Hove Albion will be sure of joining them with a win at London City Lionesses, with both Bristol City and London Bees hampered by their goals records.

Manchester United are effectively through from Group C and finish away at Birmingham City, who need at least a three-goal margin of victory to possibly take second place from Manchester City.

Sheffield United and Durham would each secure their places in the last eight with wins at home to Coventry United and away to Liverpool respectively but the Reds aren’t quite out of it themselves yet and Aston Villa could still catch the leading pair.
