Lyon made the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-finals but only after they were given a scare by Brøndby.

UWCL Round of 16 2nd leg

Brøndby 1-3 Lyon (Agg: 1-5)

Brøndby reduced Lyon’s aggregate lead to 3-2 with an early Nanna Christiansen effort, before the holders hit back with three goals. Nikita Parris and Melvine Malard turned the match around by half-time and Wendie Renard converted a 50th-minute penalty. Lyon broke another record with their 30th consecutive match unbeaten in Europe.

Wolfsburg repeated their 2-0 1st leg result over LSK Kvinner with both goals just before the break. Ina Gaudal conceded and own-goal and Ingrid Syrstad Engen.

Rosengård won through 2-0 on the night in St. Pölten, despite being held 2-2 in their home leg. Emma Berglund gave them a 26th-minute lead and Mimmi Larsson got their second close to the interval.

Barcelona added five times to their 4-0 advantage when away to Fortuna Hjørring, aided by one goal in either half from Aitana Bonmati. Mariona Caldentey netted from the spot in the second-half, after which Asisat Oshoala and Marta Torrejón also got on the scoresheet.
