Arsenal and Glasgow City through
 Women's Football UEFA Women's Champions League - 1 Nov 2019
 
Two British teams remain in the UEFA Women's Champions League as Arsenal and Glasgow City went through to the quarter finals - but Manchester City's hopes are over for this season after they went out to Atletico Madrid.
 
Manchester City were first in action on Wednesday night as they travelled to Madrid with the scores level at 1-1 from the first leg. City went into the game needing to score, to at least cancel out Atletico's away goal from the previous meeting, but fell behind five minutes before half time when a shot cannoned off the unfortunate Steph Houghton and into her own net. Atletico took a firm grip on the tie when captain Angela Sosa produced a neat finish to double her side's lead midway through the second half, leaving City with a mountain to climb. City pulled a goal back with two minutes remaining as the home defence failed to deal with a long throw by Megan Campbell and Pauline Bremer pounced to sweep in from close range, but there was too little time left to grab what would have been a decisive second and City went out to the Spanish side for the second year in a row, beaten 2-1 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate.
 
It was a memorable night for Olympique Lyonnais striker Ada Hegerberg, who passed Anja Mittag as the tournament's record scorer when she netted twice in their 7-0 win against Fortuna Hjorring. Nikita Parris was also on the scoresheet as she grabbed the final goal of the game in injury time.
 
Arsenal reached their first quarter final since 2014 by brushing aside SK Slavia Praha in a one-sided affair at Boreham Wood. Taking a healthy three-goal advantage into the second leg, two goals in a four minute spell from Danielle van de Donk and Kim Little banished any fears of a comeback. Jill Roord made it three just after the half hour and Vivianne Miedema got on the scoresheet on the stroke of half time. Arsenal did not let up after the break, van de Donk netted the fifth on the hour and went on complete her hat-trick ten minutes later. Miedema then added a further two goals herself to seal an 8-0 victory, 13-2 on aggregate, and her own personal hat-trick, taking her past Ada Hegerberg as the leading goalscorer in this season's competition with ten.
 
Glasgow City were 2-0 up going into their second leg with Brondby IF at Petershill Park and a nervous start by the SWPL Champions saw them put on the back foot. Nanna Christiansen gave Brondby a sixth minute lead on the night and Ferderikke Lindhardt made it two just before half time, to cancel out the deficit. City improved after the break but goalkeeper Lee Alexander made three outstanding saves to ensure her team did not fall further behind. Neither team was able to break through in the second half, meaning that the tie went into extra time. City took control of the game in the extra period and always looked the likelier side to score, going closest when a deft header from Jenna Clark hit the underside of the bar and stayed out, Samantha Kerr just being unable to bundle home the rebound. Leanne Ross was inches wide with a free kick in the dying minutes but City just could not score, therefore the tie had to be decided on penalties. Both teams converted their opening kicks but the outstanding Alexander then took over the show, saving three successive penalties, allowing Joanne Love to slot home the winner and spark huge celebrations as Glasgow City made it into the quarter finals for only the second time in their history.
 
The draw for the last eight will take place next Friday and the other four teams who will are still in the competition are former winners VfL Wolfsburg, last season's beaten finalists FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain.
