FFC Frankfurt 7 (Ando 8, Marozsán 38, Islacker 58,68,75, Störzel 87, Löber pen 90)
Bristol Academy 0
Bristol Academy's adventure in Europe came to a close as they were handed another heavy defeat by a merciless Frankfurt side, who go on to play Brondby in the semi finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League.
Already five goals up from the first leg at Ashton Gate, there was no sign of Frankfurt letting up in the return meeting and they were in front after eight minutes when Kerstin Garefrekes set up Kozue Ando to score from close range.
Frankfurt continued to seek more goals with Jessica Fishlock heading against the post on the half hour mark but at the other end, her fellow Welsh international Angharad James came close to an equaliser with Academy's first attack but her shot was blocked at the near post by Anne-Kathrine Kremer.
As half time approached, Frankfurt scored their second goal when Dzsenifer Marozsán slotted home the rebound after her initial shot had been blocked.
Fishlock looked determined to score against her former club and, five minutes into the second half, she had a great opportunity to do so but once again headed against the post from close range. However Frankfurt increased their lead shortly afterwards when a flick by Peggy Kuznik set up Mandy Islacker to fire home.
Islacker was on hand again ten minutes later, scoring from the rebound after Loren Dykes had blocked a Kuznik header on the goal line. Marozsán smashed a free kick against the bar before Islacker then went on to complete an opportunist hat-trick, once again from point blank range.
To their credit, the Bristol Academy players did not give up and fought until the end but Frankfurt remained ruthless. Laura Störzel headed in from a Marozsán free kick and as the game went into injury time, Jana Löber completed the scoring from the penalty spot after Grace McCatty had brought down Ana Maria Crnogorčević in the area.
