Chelsea overcame a few scares to eliminate Atletico Madrid from the UEFA Women’s Champions League Round of 16.
As in the 1st leg, there was more penalty dramas but a 1-1 result gave Emma Hayes’ side a 3-1 aggregate victory.
There were few threats on either goal in the first half but Ann-Katrin Berger needed a second attempt to smother Toni Duggan’s 20-yard volley, while Hedvig Lindahl’s outstretched boot prevented a cross going in off one of her own defenders.
Maren Mjelde should have made more when bursting through the defence on a counter-attack, while an earlier collision with Millie Bright offered the home side a chance, only for Dayna Catsellanos to clear the crossbar.
The second-half was all about penalties, as Atletico were given one at the third time of asking but Toni Duggan thumped it against the crossbar.
Then within a couple of minutes, Chelsea were also awarded a spot-kick for handball and Mjelde thumped it home, effectively ensuring her side go through to the quarter-finals.
Emelyne Laurent’ fired home a consolation goal in the final minute of the ninety.
