Bayern Munich were made to endure a tense finish by Göteborg, whose Rebecka Blomqvist levelled the aggregate scores in the last 10 minutes before the German hosts edged through on the away goals rule.

Barcelona extended their lead over Juventus tgrough Alexia Putellas and a Cristiana Girelli own-goal on their way to a 4-1 result over the two legs.

Caroline Møller’s brace saw Fortune Hjorring defeat Vllaznia 2-0 on the day and 3-0 overall.

Wolfsburg added five to their ten in the first leg against Mitrovica and Nikita Parris bagged a brace as holders Lyon went one better on aggregate with Ryazan.
