The journey to the 2010/11 UEFA Women's Champions League final in London starts across the continent on Thursday when the seven qualifying round mini-tournaments get under way.

The 2010/11 UEFA Women's Champions League begins on Thursday with two former European titleholders among the 28 clubs in action in the qualifying round which can be followed live on UEFA.com's MatchCentre.

Among them are the 2008/09 UEFA Women's Cup winners, FCR 2001 Duisburg, and two-time European champions Umeå IK, both of whom reached the semi-finals last season. Duisburg are in Group 7 in Northern Ireland while Umeå head to Cyprus for Group 3.

The group winners and the two runners-up with the best records against the sides first and third in their pool will join the teams given byes to the knockout phase, including holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, in the draw for the rounds of 32 and 16 on 19 August. The competition will continue as a two-legged knockout until the one-off final held in London on Thursday 26 May, two days before the men's UEFA Champions League decider at Wembley.

Former champions Umeå IK and FCR 2001 Duisburg began their campaigns with 3-0 wins, while Breidablik were one of two teams to hit eight on Matchday 1 of the qualifying round.

Last season's beaten semi-finalists − Umeå IK and FCR 2001 Duisburg − were among the winners on Matchday 1 of the 2010/11 UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round. Elsewhere, there were big victories for Breidablik, Glasgow City FC, ASD Bardolino Verona, FC NSA Sofia, Brøndby IF and Everton. UEFA.com rounds up the action.

Group 1
Sofia thrashed Gazi Üniversitesi SK 7-0 in Denmark. Leading 2-0 at half-time, the Bulgarian team stepped up a gear after the break, captain Silvia Radoyska scoring with efforts on 68 and 84 minutes. Brøndby also impressed as Sanne Troelsgaard Nielsen and Henriette Dahl both scored twice in a 6-0 success against Moldova's FC Roma Calfa.

Group 2
Everton were also among the goals, defeating Faroese outfit KÍ Klaksvík 6-0 in Lithuania. England international Fara Williams scored twice, her first coming from the penalty spot. Rasa Imanalijeva grabbed the headlines in the other game with a hat-trick for hosts Gintra Universitetas in their 4-0 triumph against ZFK Borec from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Group 3
Umeå got their campaign under way with a 3-0 defeat of ASA Tel-Aviv in Cyprus. The scoreline does not tell the whole story, however, with the two-time winners requiring two goals in the final four minutes to put the result beyond doubt. Apollon Limassol LFC had no such struggles, scoring four times inside 33 minutes before cruising to a 6-1 victory against WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo.

Group 4
Laëtitia Tonazzi stole the show in FCF Juvisy Essonne's encounter with Romania's FCM Târgu Mureş, scoring a hat-trick in a 5-1 triumph in Iceland. Breidablik went three goals better, however, with Harpa Thorsteinsdottir claiming a treble of her own in an 8-1 romp against FC Levadia Tallinn.

Group 5
Captain Melania Gabbiadini also walked away with the matchball after Bardolino Verona scored seven without reply, the Italian team defeating debutants Swansea City Ladies AFC in Slovenia. ŽNK Krka against FC Baia Zugdidi was abandoned because of a waterlogged pitch and will now be played on Sunday.

Group 6
Five different players scored and three were sent off as Russia's FC Rossiyanka overwhelmed Croatian hosts WFC Osijek 5-0. Oksana Shmachkova (73), who struck the opener, was dismissed for Rossiyanka, while captain Violeta Baban (73) and Dragica Cepernić saw red for Osijek. Republic of Ireland side St Francis beat Portuguese outfit 1° Dezembro 4-1 in the other game.

Group 7
Duisburg, champions in 2009, defeated ŠK Slovan Bratislava 3-0.  Four days after winning the Gold Ball and Shoe in Germany's triumphant FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup campaign, Alexandra Popp scored for Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's side, who lost Inka Grings to injury before kick-off. Northern Irish hosts Newtownabbey Strikers WFC endured a day to forget, though, with Clare Gemmell, Rachel Corsie and Leanne Ross all notching two goals in Glasgow's 8-0 success.

The mini-tournaments continue on Saturday and conclude on Tuesday, when the group winners and two runners-up with the best records against the teams first and third in their pool progress to the knockout phase.

Those two teams are unlucky, they have a game today, another one tomorrow and the last one on Tuesday. They are not probably at the same
level as Bardolino Verona but one of the two runner-up spot is for grab and it will be harder for them to get one.

Huge upset in group 3 with Umea beaten 4-1 by Cyprus team Apollon Limassol.
Umea needs a lot of good circumstances to finish top of the group or even in two best runner-up place.

I didn't think Duisberg were all that great from what I've seen so far.  So there could be two former cup winners going out at the group stage...

Apollon catch the eye on goal-filled day

Apollon Limassol LFC recorded one of the biggest upsets in European women's football history by defeating former winners Umeå IK 4-1 on Matchday 2 of the UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round.

Ten clubs, including the Cypriot side plus Brøndby IF and FCF Juvisy Essonne – both 12-0 winners on Saturday – boast maximum points going into the final round of mini-tournament matches on Tuesday. The group winners and two runners-up with the best records against the teams first and third in their pools will progress to the knockout phase.

Group 1
Brøndby took their tally to 18 goals in two matches by defeating Gazi Üniversitesi SK 12-0, substitutes Sanne Troelsgaard Nielsen and Henriette Dahl both scoring twice for the second successive match. FC NSA Sofia stand level with the Danish club on six points following a 4-0 defeat of FC Roma Calfa. The pair meet on Tuesday.

Group 2
Everton made it two wins from two by hitting ZFK Borec for ten without reply. Substitute Nikita Parris struck twice for the English side in a match which featured nine different goalscorers. Mo Marley's team are two points ahead of Tuesday's opponents Gintra Universitetas, who drew 0-0 with a KÍ Klaksvík side thankful to goalkeeper Randi Wardum for keeping them on level terms.

Group 3
The shock of the day came in Cyprus, where two goals from Alexandra Iusan helped hosts Apollon to victory against Umeå, beaten semi-finalists last season. Christoforou Christakis, the Apollon coach, said the victory was "historic for Cypriot football". Apollon possess maximum points, with Umeå and ASA Tel-Aviv – 3-1 victors against WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo – three behind.

Group 4
Juvisy Essonne emulated Brøndby's scoring feat, with Julie Machart helping herself to four in 22 minutes either side of the break as Sandrine Mathivet's charges overwhelmed FC Levadia Tallinn 12-0. Breidablik, who face the French club next, also have a perfect record thanks to a 7-0 defeat of FCM Târgu Mureş.

Group 5
ASD Bardolino Verona are another team with a 100% record after beating Gerorgian outfit FC Baia Zugdidi 3-0. Melania Gabbiadini, who struck a hat-trick against Swansea City Ladies AFC on Matchday 1, doubled the Italian champions' lead on 49 minutes. ŽNK Krka also have a perfect record after beating Swansea 4-0 on Saturday and Baia Zugdidi by the same scoreline in their rescheduled Matchday 1 game on Sunday.

Group 6
Emueje Oghiabeva scored four inside 38 first-half minutes as FC Rossiyanka put nine past St Francis. The Russian side, for whom Olga Petrova set up four, lead the way on six points, three clear of their opponents and 1° Dezembro, 4-1 winners against WFC Osijek.

Group 7
Glasgow City FC and FCR 2001 Duisburg will meet on Matchday 3 in Northern Ireland for the right to decide who progresses as group winners after the pair both won for the second match in succession. Glasgow lead the section on goal difference thanks to a 4-0 triumph over ŠK Slovan Bratislava, while Duisburg − semi-finalists last season − eased past hosts Newtownabbey Strikers WFC 6-1.

Potsdam face Finnish encounter

Holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam have been handed a round of 32 tie with Åland United while Olympique Lyonnais take on AZ Alkmaar after the draw for the first two knockout stages were made.

UEFA Women's Champions League holders 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam will begin their title defence against Åland United in Finland after the draw for the first two knockout rounds were made in Nyon.

Potsdam are one of 23 teams entering the competition at this stage, joining the nine clubs who progressed from the qualifying round. They take on European debutants Åland in the round of 32 on 22/23 September and 13/14 October and are at home in the second leg, like all of the seeded teams. Should they go through, Potsdam will face PAOK FC or Austrian champions SV Neulengbach in the last 16 in November.

FCR 2001 Duisburg, who preceded their German rivals as European champions by winning the last UEFA Women's Cup in 2009, have a round of 32 tie with newcomers CSHVSM of Kazakhstan. The only other previous titleholders still involved, Arsenal LFC, face Serbia's ŽFK Mašinac. The side who lost the 2010 final to Potsdam, Olympique Lyonnais, take on AZ Alkmaar in perhaps the tie of the round along with 2003 runners-up Fortuna Hjørring against former semi-finalists CF Bardolino Verona – that pair also met last season with the Danish side winning 5-2 on aggregate.

Lyon's French rivals, FCF Juvisy Essonne, will be rematched with Breidablik, the pair having drawn 3-3 in the qualifying round in Iceland to ensure their mutual progress. Apollon Limassol LFC, who surprisingly eliminated two-time champions Umeå IK in the qualifying round, have been rewarded with a tie against 2009 runners-up Zvezda-2005. The eight teams progressing from the round of 16 will enter the draw for the rest of the competition on 19 November.

Making the draw, UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino said: "European competitions are the icing on the cake of the domestic leagues and the national federations. The UEFA Women's Champions League gives clubs a chance to experience new countries and new cities, new football cultures and new stadiums and will ultimately end in the final on 26 May 2011 in London."

Round of 32 draw
First leg: 22/23 September
Second leg: 13/14 October

1. K. Sint-Truidense VV (BEL) v AC Sparta Praha (CZE)
2. Legend Chernigov (UKR) v FC Rossiyanka (RUS)
3. ŽFK Mašinac (SRB) v Arsenal LFC (ENG)
4. CSHVSM (KAZ) v FCR 2001 Duisburg (GER)
5. MTK Hungária FC (HUN) v Everton (ENG)
6. Breidablik (ISL) v FCF Juvisy Essonne (FRA)
7. PAOK FC (GRE) v SV Neulengbach (AUT)

As Syvlain said, it is simply a typo.  The UEFA rules are clear on the matter.
