As It Happened: Atlético Madrid Femenino 0-1 Barcelona Femení in the UEFA Women's Champions League


18:562 years ago


So it's Barcelona against Wolfsburg for a place in the final in nine days' time. I'd hate to call that one. Until next time, folks!
18:522 years ago


Barcelona, now unbeaten in thirty matches, will face Wolfsburg in the last four. That's a titanic clash. Atlético made it hard work in their first ever UWCL Quarter Final. They'll be here again.
18:502 years ago


San Pedro's free kick is headed goalward, but Paños collects with ease and that's it! Barcelona make the semi finals!
18:482 years ago


One minute for Atléti to save themselves. And they've got a free kick in a dangerous area!
18:472 years ago


18:472 years ago


Hermoso fires over as Barcelona try to kill the game off.
18:462 years ago


Atlético just can't string more than five forward passes together. Barça look destined for the semis.
18:442 years ago


CHANCE! Hamraoui could have sealed it, but hits it straight down Lindahl's throat.
18:432 years ago


Wolfsburg now have NINE against Glasgow City!
18:412 years ago


Atlético have to come out and play now.
18:382 years ago


GOAL!! Hamraoui! Barcelona earn another corner after second-half substitute Caldente spread the play wide. Atlético thought they'd dealt with the danger, but Caldente recycled the ball. It's a carbon copy of how the corner was won, but what a delivery and what a finish from Hamraoui!
18:332 years ago


It's a thankless task for Atléti's frontline as they keep chasing lost causes in behind. It only takes one mistake, though...
18:312 years ago


ANOTHER chance! Hermoso slices the Atlético defence open, but Hansen strikes it straight at Lindahl! How many opportunities are Barcelona going to waste? How many can the afford to?
18:282 years ago


Chance! Another brilliant ball is whipped in from the Barcelona right but it's turned into the side netting at the far post with Lindahl beaten!
18:252 years ago


Looks like Wolfsburg will play the winner of this one in the semis. They're currently beating Glasgow City 5-1.
18:242 years ago


Midway through the second half, there's still nothing to separate the two sides. Atlético are doing themselves proud. They couldn't, could they?
18:202 years ago


Martens goes down in the area as she heads to the byline, but it's yet another brilliant tackle.
18:192 years ago


Less than thirty minutes to go. Looks like one moment of brilliance will settle it.
18:162 years ago


Down the other end, a long ball send Knaark running through towards goal, but her effort blazes wide.
18:142 years ago


It's another chance for Barcelona, and another for Oshoala, but she sends the ball off target! That's the best chance of the match so far.
18:122 years ago


It's not the most entertaining Quarter Final we've seen, but Barcelona are doing far better than their male counterparts, so that's something for them.
18:112 years ago


Barcelona are getting the crosses in much more frequently now, but Oshoala heads wide.
18:092 years ago


Martens threatens again down the Barcelona left, but her cross is dealt with by Tounkara.
18:062 years ago


Jade Moore comes off worse from a 50/50, but carries on with little fuss. Atlético have made a bright start to the second half.
18:032 years ago


Barcelona may have heard a few strong words at the break. Considering they're facing a makeshift Atlético side, they didn't create anywhere near enough chances.
18:022 years ago


We're back underway for the second half!
17:542 years ago


Meanwhile, Wolfsburg are strolling against Glasgow City. The German side lead the Scots 4-0 at the midway point.
17:502 years ago


The urgent nature of Barcelona's handball appeal shows just how much Atlético are managing to keep them at bay. Martens' shot that was cleared off the line is the only clear-cut chance to note from the first half.
17:482 years ago


It's 0-0 at the break. Atlético standing firm thus far, but they really need to bypass the Barcelona press and get Duggan on the ball if they want to win this. Barcelona look the more likely.
17:452 years ago


Handball appeal from Barcelona! It does strike Tounkara's arm, but it was totally unintentional and the referee is unmoved.
17:432 years ago


Given the usually high-scoring nature of this fixture, it's extremely surprising that we're still goalless here. Hopefully writing that changes things.
17:342 years ago


BIG CHANCE! Barcelona win a corner, but the referee wants to make sure everything's clean in the middle first. Well punched clear by Lindhahl before Lieke Martens' effort is cleared off the line! Somehow still 0-0!

Just as I say that, Lindhal gets the faintest of touches to a dangerous cross. If Atléti open up, Barça will punish them.
17:272 years ago


Knaak feeds the ball out wide to Sosa, but her effort flies well over the bar. Atletico are growing into this one.
17:222 years ago


In case you need reminding, Toni Duggan moved from Barcelona to Atletico last summer. It would be some story if she made the difference tonight. As of yet, though, it's still 0-0 in Bilbao.
17:172 years ago


No clear-cut chances in the opening fifteen minutes, but Barcelona are on top. Martens looks threatening in behind.
17:122 years ago


If you haven't seen them already, here are tonight's starting line-ups:


Attetico: Lindhal, Strom, Menayo, van Dongen, Tounkara, Guagni, Moore, Sampedro, Sosa, Knaak, Duggan. Barcelona: Pantildeos, Leon, Hermoso, Marta, Hamraoui, Alexia, Leila, Graham, Pereira, Oshoala, Martens.

"It's going to be a tough one" - Asisat Oshoala

Speaking to VAVEL UK ahead of the game, Barcelona striker Asisat Oshoala said:

"Atletico Madrid are a very good team and a top side as well. The fact that we beat them doesn't mean that it's going to happen again. They're a very good side.

"We just have to keep working on ourselves to get better than before, to make sure we try to get something out of the game, so it's going to be a tough one. I think we're just going to give our best. 

"I'm not going to say anything more because you have to learn to respect the opponent you know and if not, it's going to cost you the game."
