What a game in Vantaa. Saved penalty by home keeper. Not long after that break-away, crossbar and post inside a minute for the home team.

Second runner up through: Spartak Subotica.
Reading the match commentary it looked like tense end to end stuff and in the end both side quality so everybody is happy !

Glasgow City and PK-35 among ten to progress
« Reply #41 on: August 17, 2012, 07:41:37 AM »
A draw in the Group 8 decider proved sufficient for Glasgow City LFC and PK-35 Vantaa to join eight other teams in reaching the knockout stages, six of whom qualified with maximum points.

Glasgow City LFC's 1-1 draw against PK-35 Vantaa ensured that last season's round of 16 participants finished top of Group 8 to qualify on seven points. Their opponents, only second on goal difference, joined Spartak Jaffa in progression to the knockout stage as the two best runners-up.

Elsewhere WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo's seven points proved sufficient, while FC Zürich, BIIK Shymkent, CFF Olimpia Cluj, RTP Unia Racibórz, Apollon Limassol LFC and MTK Hungária FC all finished with 100% records to cruise through. The qualified ten now join the 22 top-ranked teams, including holders Olympique Lyonnais, in the draws for the rounds of 32 and 16 on 23 August.

Group 1

With a place in the knockout phase confirmed, Zürich signed off with an assured 8-0 victory against FK Gintra Universitetas, to cement their position atop the standings with maximum points. ŽNK Pomurje Beltinci finished second, Tjaša Tibaut scoring twice in a 4-2 success versus Turkish outfit Ataşehir Belediyespor, who ended the game with ten players.

Group 2

BIIK Shymkent booked their place in the knockout phase and maintained a 100% record by overcoming NSA Sofia 4-0, who finished third. Sofia's loss was Spartak Jaffa's gain, the Serbian side progressing as one of two best runners-up. Captain Violeta Slović's 78th-minute goal proved decisive at bottom side Pärnu JK.

Group 3

Olimpia Cluj suffered a setback when SU 1° Dezembro took an early lead, but they responded in style to clinch a 4-1 win. Cosmina Duşa scored a hat-trick to take her group stage tally to eight and maintain the Romanian side's flawless record. Glentoran Belfast United WFC finished third, consigning point-less Birkirkara FC to a 3-1 defeat.

Group 4

Unia Racibórz will feature in the knockout phase after Chinasa found the net for the eighth time in qualifying to condemn FC Bobruichanka to a 5-0 reverse. "I'm very happy with the goals I have scored, I did not expect so many of them," she said. ŠK Slovan Bratislava made no mistake in tying up second place in the group, an 8-0 win against Ekonomist shaped by six different goalscorers.

Group 5

Sarajevo were held to a 1-1 draw against ASA Tel-Aviv, but the undefeated side still topped the group to qualify. Meanwhile Peamount United beat UWIC LFC 4-0 to finish as group runners-up. "Unfortunately we slipped up in the first match," said coach Eileen Gleeson, whose side did not do enough to secure a knockout spot.

Group 6

Apollon Limassol LFC coasted a 3-0 win against WFC Kharkiv to maintain their 100% record, all three second-half goals coming after Eleni Giannou was shown a straight red card. The Cypriots have not conceded a goal in qualifying for the knockout stage, and have registered an impressive 31 times - helped by nine-goal striker Laura Rus. KS Ada Velipoje lost 11-1 KI Klaksvík to finish bottom of the group.

Group 7

Two second-half goals ensured that MTK overcame Greek side FC PAOK Thessaloniki 2-0 in the final battle for top spot in Group 7, while ZFK Nase Taksi-SNT 2010 clinched third and consolation with a 5-2 win against point-less SKONTO FK.

Group 8

Glasgow City's 1-1 draw against hosts PK-35 in the table-topping decider was sufficient for both sides to clinch a place in the knockout stage. Both goals came inside the first eight minutes in a tight affair that ultimately meant Glasgow assumed pole position. "I'm satisfied," said Glasgow coach Eddie Wolecki Black. "We have a lot of progress to make, but the main thing was to get through." Maja Joščak and Ana Marija Kalamiza both hit hat-tricks as WFC Osijek defeated FC Noroc Nimoreni 11-1.

The first half included great chances for both teams. In the second half it was all Glasgow. However, very risky tactics regarding defending. Could have cost them a place in round 32 - if Vantaa hadn't been that tired and satisfied with a draw.

But to be fair, Glasgow was the better team by far and Vantaa lucky to get that draw.

Knockout draw live on Thursday

Holders Olympique Lyonnais, 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and Arsenal LFC are among the seeds for the round of 32 and 16 draws, streamed live on UEFA.com from 14.00CET on Thursday.

Holders Olympique Lyonnais are among 22 teams entering the UEFA Women's Champions League when the draws for the rounds of 32 and 16 are made at 14.00CET on Thursday, streamed live from Nyon on UEFA.com.

Lyon are among the clubs given a bye to this stage along with past winners 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam and Arsenal LFC, with the lineup completed by the ten teams that made it through from last week's qualifying round. The 16 teams with the highest UEFA club coefficient ranking, including Lyon, Potsdam, Arsenal, debutants VfL Wolfsburg and FK Zorkiy Krasnogorsk, will be seeded for the round of 32 draw and will each be paired with unseeded teams, among whose number are newcomers Birmingham City LFC and FC Barcelona.

The unseeded teams will be at home on the first leg of 26/27 September and visit the seeded teams on 3/4 October.

No side can meet a team from their own association – so Birmingham will not face Arsenal and Stabæk Fotball cannot come up against Norwegian rivals Røa Fotball Elite.

The round of 16 will be played on 31 October/1 November and 7/8 November and in the draw, also held on Thursday, 16 balls containing slips of paper reading 'winner of match 1' to 'winner of match 16' will be drawn, with no country protection or seeding.

Holders Lyon handed Vantaa challenge
« Reply #48 on: August 23, 2012, 06:43:49 PM »
Victors in the last two seasons, Olympique Lyonnais start against PK-35 Vantaa while debutants FC Barcelona take on Arsenal LFC after the draws for the rounds of 32 and 16 were made.

Olympique Lyonnais will begin their bid to win a third straight UEFA Women's Champions League title against PK-35 Vantaa while FC Barcelona will make their debut against Arsenal LFC after the draws for the rounds of 32 and 16 were made in Nyon.

Lyon, who have reached the last three finals having gone as far as the semis in their two previous entries, were among 16 seeded teams playing away in the first leg of 26/27 September and at home on 3/4 October. Opponents Vantaa of Finland were one of the ten clubs that progressed from the qualifying round last week.

Two-time European champions 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam, who lost to Lyon in the 2011 final which, like this season's decider, was played in London, have been matched with Standard Fémina de Liège while 2007 winners Arsenal start their journey to a possible showpiece in their home city against a famous name making their bow, Barcelona. Among the other debutants involed in the last 32, ambitious 2011/12 German league runners-up VfL Wolfsburg, will make their first appearance against RTP Unia Racibórz of Poland.

In the round of 16, for which an open draw was made, the winners of the match between Barcelona and Arsenal could face two-time champions Potsdam should they knock out Standard. Those ties will be played on 31 October/1 November and 7/8 November.

The draws were conducted by UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino and UEFA Head of Women's and Futsal Competitions Mikael Salzer.

It should be interesting to see if any seeded team get knocked out in this round.
I think Juvisy, Krasnogorsk, Verona, Torres could make an early exit.
11 games played today and 4 tomorrow to add to yesterday's one. Early kick-off in Kazhakstan betweek BIIK and Roa.

no doubt it will be tough, but if our Laura wants to go all the way this time, she is going to have to fathom how to get passed them.....still, Arsenal are no Glasgow City and if all step up, then its doable.
