Manchester City the sole survivors
 Women's Football News 14 Oct 2016
 
Manchester City are the only British team left in the UEFA Women's Champions League after they successfully completed a 6-0 aggregate victory over Zvezda-2005. 
 
Nick Cushing's side travelled to Russia holding a 2-0 lead from the first leg and were facing a side that had once reached the Final and were unbeaten at home in the competition since 2009.
 
An away goal was going to put Manchester City in a very strong position in the tie and it was Jennifer Beattie who fired them in front midway through the first half. Nine minutes later, Lucy Bronze doubled their advantage on the night from a corner, netting her third goal in successive matches. In the second half, another corner led to Beattie getting her second goal and Izzy Christiansen wrapped up a 4-0 win with the final goal.
 
Hibernian meanwhile travelled for their second leg against Bayern Munich with the tie well beyond them. Trailing by six goals going into the match, a tough night was in prospect and they found themselves three goals behind, Anna Gerhardt scoring twice and Lisa Evans the other, before Abigail Harrison notched up their first goal in the tie. Vivianne Miedema netted a fourth for Bayern during the second half but Hibs had worked hard throughout the match and will be better for the experience when they return to Europe next season.
 
It was also 'mission impossible' for Chelsea as they sought to overturn a 3-0 deficit when they played away to VfL Wolfsburg. Chelsea needed to withstand early pressure but then, on the stroke of half time, Eniola Aluko seized on a bad backpass to give her side the lead and keep any hopes of a great fightback alive. They came very close after the break when Karen Carney struck the woodwork but Wolfsburg banished any lingering doubts they might have had when Sara Bjork Gunnarsdottir equalised with ten minutes remaining. The game finished 1-1 and Chelsea had salvaged some pride but had ended up victims to the same side for the second year running.
 
On Thursday night, Glasgow City went into the second leg with Eskilstuna Utd trailing 1-0 from the previous meeting. However it was the Swedish side who took the lead after just seven minutes at the Excelsior Stadium through Olivia Schough, giving her side a valuable away goal. City fought hard to get back into the game and in the opening minute of the second half, Sarah Crilly brought them level on the night. Just before the hour mark though, Schough was to strike again with her second goal and this sealed a 2-1 win for Eskilstuna, 3-1 on aggregate.
