Chelsea and Sam Kerr battled it out against Atletico Madrid and came out on top. It was another dramatic match with two penalties awarded - adding to the three spot kicks from the first leg. The Spanish side was unable to convert their penalty in the 75th minute, with Toni Duggan hitting the crossbar. 

The Blues went down the other end, earned a penalty, and Maren Mjelde made no mistake from the spot. An injury time goal to Emelyne Laurent was a consolation for Atletico as Chelsea won the tie on aggregate 3-1. 

Kerr and the Chelsea attack were well marshalled by Atleti but looked the more threatening side. 

Lyon progressed through to the next stage of the tournament with a 3-1 win on the day and a 5-1 win on aggregate. Ellie Carpenter sat on the bench for this match but her team mates got the job done. 

The reigning champions had a small scare when Brøndby opened the scoring through Nanna Christiansen. But goals to Nikita Parris and Melvine Malard - who both scored in the first leg - and Wendie Renard penalty shored up the result for Lyon.
