Kirby hat-trick helps Chelsea through
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 2 Nov 2018
Chelsea completed the job in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie against Fiorentina and did so in spectacular style, running out 6-0 winners to reach the quarter finals of the competition for the second time.
Emma Hayes' side went into the return meeting of their tie with a slender 1-0 advantage from the first leg, given to them by a Karen Carney penalty. An away goal would have been on the agenda and it came 24 minutes into the game, Drew Spence scoring a goal which meant the home side would need to score at least three times at that point. The tie was effectively killed off though, seven minutes before half time, when Fran Kirby inceased Chelsea's lead.
After the break, Chelsea started to run riot and went further and further ahead against an increasingly demoralised Fiorentina side. Kirby netted her second goal from the penalty spot and four minutes later, Erin Cuthbert also got on the scoresheet. Kirby then completed her hat-trick - her first in Europe - and substitute Ramona Bachmann completed the rout midway through the second half. The only blot on the night for Chelsea came with sixteen minutes remaining when Millie Bright was adjudged to have denied a goalscoring opportunity when she brought down Alice Parisi and she was red carded, ruling the England defender out of at least the first leg of the quarter finals.
Glasgow City meanwhile went into the second leg of their tie with FC Barcelona facing a virtually impossible task of overhauling a five-goal deficit from the first leg. That task was to get even harder with just thirteen minutes on the clock, when Toni Duggan latched onto a through ball from Vicky Losada and planted her shot past Lee Alexander to give her side an away goal. City battled hard to try and keep themselves in the game on the night but although they found it hard to make an impression on the Barca defence, they kept the deficit to one goal at the break.
However, two goals inside the opening five minutes of the second half once again put them on the back foot. First, Losada was the provider again with a slide rule pass to release Alexis Putellas who calmly finished past Alexander, then Duggan chested down a cross and volleyed in on the turn for her third goal. Duggan went close to a hat-trick when she headed just wide and Alexander made two good saves to deny Putellas, but City never gave up and did not concede any more goals to their powerful Spanish opponents.
