Chelsea 2-0 Atletico Madrid 

Sam Kerr and her Chelsea team mates have travelled to Monza, Italy to take on Atletico Madrid in their second leg. The match is being played at a neutral stadium due to COVID-19 border restrictions between the UK and Spain. 

It was a crazy night of football at Kingsmeadow in the first leg with the Blues going down to 10, three penalties being awarded, Ann-Katrin Berger saving two of them, and Chelsea ultimately coming away with the win. 

Emma Hayes' side have been busy with a 2-0 win against West Ham in the league over the weekend and a Continental Cup final on the other side of this UEFA Women's Champions League game. 

Meanwhile, Atletico enter this match off a 4-0 win over Real Betis in the league. This match promises to be entertaining, with progression to the quarter finals still very possible for both teams. 

Olympique Lyonnais 2-0 Brøndby 

The reigning title holders take on Danish side Brøndby in the second leg of this tie. After a solid 2-0 win at home in Lyon, Ellie Carpenter's side will look to carry on their winning ways. 

Lyon were strong in the first leg of this clash but the Danes had their chances. It took half an hour for the home side to open the scoring through Nikita Parris and injury time in the second half for them to extend their lead via Melvine Malard.

The French side did not play over the weekend while Brøndby lost 1-0 to AGF in a match that was meant to take place at the end of the last season. 

VfL Wolfsburg 2-0 LSK 

Karly Roestbakken's LSK and last year's finalists Wolfsburg will battle it out in Hungary for a spot in the quarter finals. The match cannot be played in Norway due to COVID-19 border restrictions. 

An Alexandra Popp double was enough for Wolfsburg to take a 2-0 lead into this second leg. Roestbakken did not feature in the clash due to a persistent injury. The German Frauen Bundesliga is in season and Wolfsburg enter this game off a 4-0 win against Meppen. 

LSK on the other hand begin their Toppserien season on March 20th. The task to progress to the quarter finals is not impossible for the Norwegians but it will be a big ask against a team that is very familiar with what it takes to win this tournament.
