UEFA Women’s Champions League holders Lyon were 2-0 winners in their Round of 16 home leg with Brøndby.
Nikita Parris gave Lyon the lead with a header from an Amel Majri delivery on 30 minutes but the Danish side almost restricted their French hosts to just that single goal.
However, Melvine Mallard added a possibly crucial second goal in stoppage-time from a Janice Cayman corner, to give Lyon a 2-0 advantage to defend next week.
Lyon reached a couple of landmarks in the tie, netting their 400th UWCL goal, while Wendie Renard made it a competition record 90th appearance.
