Paris Saint Germain knocked holders Lyon out of the UEFA Women’s Champions League on the away goals rule.

One up from the away leg, Lyon doubled their lead when Catarina Macario scored just four minutes.

PSG were right back in it though on 25 minutes, with an away goal of their own scored by Grace Geyoro

Wendie Renard conceded an own-goal off a Kadidiatou Diani cross just after the hour mark, which made it 2-2 overall but saw Paris with the advantage on away goals.

That was protected at the death as Cristiane Endler saved a Melvine Malard volley from close range.

PSG will now play Barcelona in the semi-finals, while Chelsea take on Bayern Munich in the other two-leg tie starting next weekend.
