Contenders aim at Berlin's Olympiastadion
« Reply #2 on: June 12, 2014, 11:26:51 AM »
With the 54 entrants confirmed, the 2014/15 campaign will conclude at Berlin's Olympiastadion on 14 May, the qualifying round draw streamed live from 14.00CET on 26 June.

Sole three-time champions 1. FFC Frankfurt and high-profile newcomers Liverpool LFC are among 54 teams from 46 nations aiming to reach the 2014/15 UEFA Women's Champions League final at Berlin's Olympiastadion – with the 26 June qualifying round draw in Nyon streamed live on UEFA.com from 14.00CET.

The top two clubs in the eight highest-ranked countries according to the association coefficient rankings and the champions of the next six associations receive byes to the round of 32. The other 32 entrants must compete in the qualifying round from 9 to 14 August for ten spots alongside those 22 clubs already in the knockout phase.

The qualifying round hopefuls are ranked according to their coefficient, and in the draw one team from each of the four established seeding positions will be allocated to one of the eight qualifying groups. Eight teams have also been designated as hosts: WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo, WFC Osijek, Rīgas FS, Gintra Universitetas, WFC Ekonomist, Clube Atlético Ouriense, CFF Olimpia Cluj and Glasgow City FC. They will be drawn first from a separate pot and placed in their group according to their seeding position.

Among the qualifying round participants are Faroese side KÍ Klaksvík, keeping up their record of entering all 14 seasons of UEFA women's club competition, plus six debutants: KKPK Medyk Konin of Poland, Greece's AS Amazones Dramas, FC Minsk from Belarus, Malta's FC Hibernians, Latvia's Rīgas and Macedonian newcomers ŽFK Kochani.

The eight qualifying group winners, plus the two runners-up with the best record against the teams first and third in their section, proceed to the 22 August draw for the round of 32, with the two-legged knockout phase beginning in October. Holders VfL Wolfsburg lead the seedings as they bid for a third straight title and are joined by the only side with three victories, Frankfurt, back after a two-year absence at the expense of 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam.

Clubs taking part for the first time who have been seeded straight to the last 32 include Italy's ACF Brescia and Liverpool LFC, who won their maiden English title in 2013 ahead of Bristol Academy LFC, meaning no place for 11-time quarter-finalists Arsenal LFC or Birmingham City LFC, like Potsdam beaten in the semis last season. The Czech Republic have two entrants for the first time, AC Sparta Praha able to earn a tenth straight campaign despite SK Slavia Praha ending their city rivals' nine-year reign as champions.

Twice-champions Olympique Lyonnais, who exited in the round of 16 to Potsdam last term after four consecutive finals, have a new coach in Gérard Prêcheur and are back along with Paris Saint-Germain. As 2013/14 UEFA Women's Champions League runners-up Tyresö FF did not fulfil the admission criteria, Swedish champions FC Rösengard (formerly Malmö) will be joined by the side next best-placed in last year's Damallsvenskan, Linköpings FC.

The competition will conclude on 14 May at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, the early date due to the following month's FIFA Women's World Cup, meaning for the first time since the present format and one-off final was introduced in 2009/10 the decider will be in the same arena as the men's final, which is not until 6 June. Two years ago, the final at Munich's Olympiastadion between Lyon and Frankfurt attracted a 50,212 crowd – a record for a women's club game in Europe.

Ouriense, Raheny and Medyk celebrate progress
« Reply #4 on: August 13, 2014, 02:36:53 PM »
The UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round concludes on Thursday but Irish side Raheny United FC, Polish debutants KKPK Medyk Konin and Portugal's Clube Atlético Ouriense will go into their last matches knowing round of 32 places are already theirs.
Related Items

 
Indeed, Ouriense are the first Portuguese team ever to progress through a round of this competition, less than three months after the final itself was played in Lisbon. UEFA.com rounds up the reaction from all three clubs and picks out prospects to watch.

Marco Ramos, Ouriense coach
What we did here was something big – we made history. We managed to adapt well to our opponents [in beating ASA Tel-Aviv University SC 2-1] and imposed our strategy. We scored our first goal and we could have scored more, but they equalised from a free-kick. Then we had a bit of luck in the way we grabbed the second goal, but we earned it. We are very proud for this city of Ourem and this group of players. We made history by winning the league and cup – and now by qualifying for the next round of this competition.

• Ouriense player to watch: Felipa Rodrigues, defender, 20
The history-making Portuguese champions have conceded only one goal in their mini-tournament – and organising their defence is Rodrigues. She previously made herself known in helping Portugal qualify for the 2012 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship, keeping two clean sheets in Turkey as they got to the last four in their nation's first major tournament. Now a senior international, she helped Ouriense retain the league title last term after joining from Fundação Laura Santos.

Casey McQuillan, Raheny manager
This was a super win for us [2-0 against FC NSA Sofia]. Clare Shine [who scored both goals] definitely shone today, but she had a fantastic supporting cast in the rest of the girls. We are absolutely delighted with the result, but will keep our feet firmly on the ground until the job is done on Thursday.

• Raheny player to watch: Clare Shine, forward, 19
The forward came to prominence at last month's Women's U19 finals when, just weeks after breaking her leg, Shine returned to score a late winner in the opener against Spain, eventually aiding the Republic of Ireland to the semis. Carrying on that form, Shine claimed an 81st-minute goal to overcome hosts CFF Olimpia Clujn in Raheny's qualifying round curtain-raiser before her decisive heroics against NSA.

Roman Jaszczak, Medyk Konin coach
[On receiving support from Polish soldiers based locally in Sarajevo] We can't complain about the support! And on Wednesday we were invited to the Polish embassy – a big surprise and a great pleasure. I am not thinking yet [about the next round]. I would most like to go to Barcelona but we will see.

• Medyk Konin player to watch: Ewa Pajor, forward, 17
The 17-year-old's four strikes in Monday's 7-0 defeat of Åland United, added to grabbing the first goal of this season's competition on Saturday against hosts WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo, took her tally in UEFA competitions to 23. She announced herself last season with her prolific record for Poland in winning the UEFA European Women's U17 Championship – having not long before come off the bench in the Polish Cup final to score twice as Medyk Konin beat champions RTP Unia Racibórz.

3 teams seeded 3rd already through after 2 games played, that is very unusual.

• Clare Shine, on target three times in Raheny's first two fixtures, scores a 79th-minute winner.

• Sarajevo finish second on home soil.
• Jelena Hršum's first-half goal gives the Serbian outfit a slender victory.

Round of 32 seedings
« Reply #6 on: August 19, 2014, 10:59:41 AM »
The two seedings pots have been confirmed for the round of 32 draw streamed live from 13.30CET on Friday, followed by the open round of 16 draw.


Debutants Liverpool LFC have missed out on seeding after the pots were confirmed for the UEFA Women's Champions League round of 32 draw at 13.30CET on Friday 22 August, which will be streamed live on UEFA.com and followed by the round of 16 draw.


In the ceremony in Nyon, the ten teams that qualified from the qualifying round, which ended on Thursday, join the 22 clubs given byes to the knockout phase (the top two sides in the eight highest-ranked countries according to the access list, which for the first time included the Czech Republic, and the champions of the next six associations).

DRAW PROCEDURE

Round of 32 draw
Those 32 teams have been split into two pots, with the 16 clubs with the highest coefficient placed in the seeded section. The seeded clubs will be at home in the second legs of their ties on 8/9 and 15/16 October, and can meet any of the unseeded sides other than those from their own association.

The progress of experienced European campaigners Glasgow City FC and FC Zürich Frauen means that Norwegian champions Stabæk FK and FA Women's Super League winners Liverpool, initially ranked 15th and 16th respectively of the clubs given byes to the round of 32, now drop into the unseeded pot. Last year that happened to Tyresö FF, and they ended up knocking out Paris Saint-Germain and reaching the final.

Among those seeds are holders VfL Wolfsburg, who retained the trophy by beating Tyresö 4-3 in May, sole three-time winners 1. FFC Frankfurt and twice champions Olympique Lyonnais. Other teams tipped to contend including Paris and FC Rosengård (formerly FCR Malmö and the new home of Marta) plus former runners-up Fortuna Hjørring and WFC Zvezda-2005 Perm.

Round of 16 draw
Following the round of 32 draw, the pairings will be made for the last 16 on 8/9 and 12/13 November, for which there will be no seeding nor country protection. The two-legged knockout system continues until the final at the Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark in Berlin, on the earlier date of Thursday 14 May due to the FIFA Women's World Cup.

Quarter-finals: 21/22 & 28/29 March
Semi-finals: 18/19 & 25/26 April

Draw highlights
• Holders Wolfsburg, hoping to be the first team to win the trophy three years running, must tackle a Stabæk side fresh from completing their first Norwegian double.

• Liverpool meet a Linköping outfit whose last European tie was an away-goals quarter-final loss to Arsenal LFC two years ago.

• Brescia's first tie is against two-time winners Lyon, who could face French arch-rivals Paris in the pick of the round of 16 potential fixtures.

• Medyk Konin, who came through the qualifying round on their first entry, take on Glasgow City LFC. As the winners of that tie play ŽNK Osijek or FC Zürich Frauen, a quarter-finalist that began in the qualifying round is assured.

• Frankfurt, bidding to be the first four-time winners, end their two-year European absence in Kazakhstan.

• Ouriense's reward for being the first Portuguese team to get through a round is to play 2003 runners-up Fortuna.

Stabæk is having a difficult season.  This week they struggled to beat a team who have taken points in just 1 of 13 games.

Liverpool/Linköping is madness.

Wolfsburg and Paris edge ahead
« Reply #11 on: October 09, 2014, 09:44:26 AM »
Holders VfL Wolfsburg and highly-fancied Paris Saint-Germain both scraped narrow victories, while 1. FFC Frankfurt were held and Brøndby IF were beaten in the first legs of their UEFA Women's Champions League round of 32 ties.


The other opening instalments are on Thursday with Irish champions Raheny United facing Bristol Academy WFC and debutants ACF Brescia welcoming two-time winners Olympique Lyonnais; the returns are next Wednesday and Thursday.

FULL RESULTS/FIXTURES

Stabæk FK 0-1 VfL Wolfsburg

FC BIIK-Kazygurt 2-2 1. FFC Frankfurt
• Gulnara Gabelia's close-range header unexpectedly put the Kazakh side in front and though Verónica Boquete's sweet finish and a long-range Dzsenifer Marozsán effort turned the tables, Nikoleta Nikolić levelled in added time.

Liverpool LFC 2-1 Linköpings FC
• Linköping had the better of the early exchanges but on 14 minutes Gemma Davison's long shot was deflected in for debutants Liverpool. Home keeper Libby Stout almost immediately denied Kristine Minde but when the Norwegian was played clear again on 36 minutes she made no mistake to equalise. Substitute Nicole Rolser hit the bar for Liverpool in the second half but Stout was still the busier keeper before Natasha Dowie pounced with 18 minutes left after a ball across by Lucy Bronze.

Ryazan-VDV 1-3 FC Rosengård
• The Russian hosts held out in the first half but Katrin Schmidt and Marta put the renamed FCR Malmö into a 2-0 lead just past the hour. Ksenia Tsybutovich reduced arrears but Anja Mittag restored the two-goal cushion for the Swedish champions in added time.

FC Twente 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain
• Kosovare Asllani's splendid tenth-minute opener set Paris on their way, with the visitors' No9 also playing a role in their second by teeing up Shirley Cruz Traña to finish. The French side did not have it all their own way, however, and Twente halved the arrears through Ellen Jansen just after the hour.

Stjarnan 2-5 WFC Zvezda-2005
• Zvezda-2005, runners-up in 2009, prevailed thanks to four goals from José Nahi, who put the Russians 2-0 up inside 12 minutes. Though Harpa Thorsteinsdóttir pulled one back and Kristrún Kristjánsdóttir made it 3-2 following Nahi's hat-trick goal, Nahi and Daryna Apanaschenko added gloss to the scoreline late on.

Apollon LFC 1-0 Brøndby IF
• England forward Lianne Sanderson, one of several Apollon loan signings from American clubs, converted a last-minute penalty to give Apollon victory against the two-time semi-finalists. Sanderson, the game's outstanding player, had hit a post early on, while Katrine Veje threatened on the left for the Danish visitors. However, the game was decided after Mie Janes brought down Apollon substitute Anti Violari.

Clube Atlético Ouriense 0-3 Fortuna Hjørring
• The 2003 runners-up made light work of the Portuguese club to make this stage. A goal apiece from Sofie Pedersen and Line Jensen in the space of a minute, plus Nadia Nadim's late spot-kick was enough for Fortuna, though Ouriense did come close to registering when Pisco's shot struck the bar.

Barcelona's Sonia Bermúdez

SK Slavia Praha 0-1 FC Barcelona
• More than 4,000 spectators watched on as Barcelona edged the first leg in Prague. The decisive moment came with just eight minutes left when defender Ruth García headed in a Alexia Putellas corner. Virginia Torrecilla could have doubled the visitors' advantage but struck a post late on.

Gintra Universitetas 1-1 AC Sparta Praha
• Through the qualifying round at the 11th attempt, Lithuanua's Gintra levelled with nine minutes left through Kamilė Vaičiulaitytė's powerful shot from ten metres out. Karolína Křivská had turned in Adéla Odehnalová's cross to break the deadlock and on 55 minutes Eva Bartoňová had a shot cleared from the line by a defender.

ŽNK Pomurje 2-4 ASD Torres Calcio
• Pomurje have scored 93 goals in their five league games in Slovenia so far, but were 2-0 down inside 30 minutes against Torres. Though goals from Mateja Zver and Manja Rogan – direct from a corner – levelled the scores, the Italians are in the ascendancy thanks to subsequent efforts from Joana Flaviano and Veronica Maglia.

Action from MTK v Neulengbach

MTK Hungária FC 1-2 SV Neulengbach
• A header from Nina Burger and Daniela Tasch's close-range finish gave the Austrian outfit victory against MTK, who pulled a goal back through Rita Méry. MTK captain Angéla Smuczer spurned a fine chance to equalise late on.

KKPK Medyk Konin 2-0 Glasgow City LFC
• In front of a sell-out 4,000 crowd in Konin, the Polish debutants continued their fine form from the qualifying round by beating the more experienced Glagow. Ewa Pajor took her season tally to eight goals from distance and Aleksandra Sikora made it two with a cross-cum-shot that fooled the visiting defence.

ŽNK Osijek 2-5 FC Zürich Frauen
• Competing for the right to face Medyk or Glasgow, Osijek stole a march through Maja Joščak after ten minutes. The away side equalised on the stroke of half-time and added four more in the second period. The hosts' misery was compounded by the late dismissal of Izabela Lojna.

Overall, scores more or less as per seedings. Of the British teams - Glasgow City's 2-0 defeat leaves them with a lot to do, especially without an away goal. Liverpool have a slender advantage and I feel they will need to score in return leg otherwise the goal they conceded last night will be crucial (against them).

Didn't realize it will be Lyon/PSG.  Oi.
Sure there's a good reason but seems odd there are two Czech teams.

This is due to the 5 years country coefficient from 2008/09 to 2012/13 which was

1. FRA 84.5
2. GER 83.17
3. SWE 58.5
4. RUS 58.5
5. ENG 495
6. ITA 37
7. DAN 34.5
8. CZE 32.5

9. NOR 31
10. SPA 28.5
11. AUT 28

etc...

Champions League: Glasgow beat Konin in extra-time to progress

Glasgow City overturned a 2-0 deficit against Poles Medyk Konin to reach the Uefa Women's Champions League last 16.

Jo Love's drive put Glasgow ahead on the night and Susan Fairlie levelled the tie with 14 minutes remaining.

Extra-time ensued and Denise O'Sullivan gave the Scottish champions a 3-2 aggregate win and knocked the Polish outfit out of the competition.

Eddie Wolecki Black's side progress to face Swiss side Zurich Frauen, who beat Croatians Osijek 7-2 on aggregate.

City faced an uphill task at the Excelsior Stadium after goals from Ewa Pajor and Aleksandra Sikora gave Konin victory in last week's first leg in Poland. But they started the second leg brightly.

• Both teams began in the qualifying round and each reached the round of 16 last season too. This tie guarantees at least one first-time quarter-finalist.

FC Rosengård (SWE) v Fortuna Hjørring (DEN)
• 2003 runners-up Fortuna have been eliminated at this stage by Swedish clubs in the last three seasons.

Paris Saint-Germain FC (FRA) v Olympique Lyonnais (FRA)
• Lyon won the only previous all-French tie 9-1 on aggregate against FCF Juvisy Essonne in the 2012/13 semis.


VfL Wolfsburg (GER, holders) v SV Neulengbach (AUT)

Frankfurt 5 Torres 0
Brondby 5 Gintra 0
Neulengbach 0 Wolfsburg 4
Zurich 2 Glasgow City 1
Rosengard 2 Fortuna 1
Linkopings 5 Zveda 0
PSG 1 OL 1
Barcelona 0 Bristol 1

The only remaining English team managed an away win at Barcelona. Huge result.

The current 5 years country coefficient

1. Germany 84.5
2. France 70.5
3. Sweden 59
4. England 57
5. Russia 42.5
6. Spain 40
7. Danemark 36.5
8. Italy 35
-----------
9. Austria 32.5
10. Czech republik 32
11. Norway 27.5
12. Switzerland 27
13. Scotland  26


Chelsea will hope that Bristol can through and add more points to England's coefficient, so that they can hopefully be seeded and avoid getting a big team like Liverpool did this season..
