English duo through to last eight
 Women's Football Club News - 18 Nov 2017
Chelsea and Manchester City completed the job in the second legs of their Round of 16 ties in the UEFA Women's Champions League and ensured that there will be two English clubs in the quarter finals for the first time since the 2013-14 season.
Chelsea were first in action on Wednesday night, taking a 3-0 lead from the first leg into their return meeting with FC Rosengard of Sweden, seeking an away goal which would put the outcome of the tie virtually beyond doub.t
That goal almost came in the opening minutes as Ji So-Yun curled a shot narrowly wide and the South Korean also forced a good save with a free kick from the edge of the area.
Maren Mjelde and Gilly Flaherty passed up good opportunities to score as the first half ended goalless but, ten minutes into the second half, Ji slotted home following a good run and cross from Crystal Dunn to give Chelsea the lead on the night that they craved.
The goal knocked the heart out of Rosengard and Chelsea almost added further goals through Ramona Bachmann, Mjelde and Fran Kirby but a 1-0 win was sufficient to sew up a comfortable four-goal aggregate victory.
Manchester City meanwhile led 5-0 from the first leg against LSK Kvinner of Norway, rendering the return match at the Academy Stadium as a mere formality.
Jill Scott had the opportunity to take Nick Cushing's side into the lead but LSK ‘keeper Cecilie Fiskerstrand got there first to prevent the midfielder from scoring. In the following moments the Blues had a number of opportunities to increase their aggregate lead, with skipper Steph Houghton's header being captured by Fiskerstrand - who hugged the ball on the line to prevent a goal.
Despite City's dominating presence the first goal of the evening went to the visitors. Marte Berget gave LSK Kvinner the advantage at the Academy Stadium in the 17th minute after Emilie Haavi's cross was converted and fired narrowly past Ellie Roebuck's outstretched hand.
Cushing's side tried their upmost to equalise, and it seemed likely to happen in the 24th minute when Demi Stokes expertly sashayed around the LSK defence and was able to pin point Nikita Parris' head perfectly, but the forward's header slipped inches wide of the ‘keeper's left post.
Less than a minute after returning to the pitch from half time, Izzy Christiansen fired home Parris' through ball beautifully to make it 1-1 between the sides.
Later on in the second half, City doubled their goal tally after substitution Melissa Lawley drove forward to feed the ball to Parris, who drove the ball forward with force and determination to give her side a 2-1 win on the night.
