It’s the first leg of the second play-off round for this season’s Women’s Champions League with the likes of Real Madrid, Roma and PSG in action.
Here’s what happened.
Rosenborg v Real Madrid
Scorers: Weir 14′,52′, Athenea 34′
New signing Caroline Weir got Madrid off the mark with a spectacular bending effort that found the top corner from outside the box.
Athenea made it 2-0 with another impressive strike which crept under the goalkeeper after being hit with pace from the edge of the area.
And Weir doubled her tally with a simpler finish, this time a tap-in which took advantage of some poor goalkeeping from the home side.
The second leg of this match will be played in a week’s time, but it has to be said that Rosenborg face a huge uphill battle after a comprehensive defeat at home.
Sparta Praha v Roma
Scorers: Martínková 51′; Bartoli 78′, Haavi 90′
This was a match that Roma dominated from the outset, only to go behind thanks to a mistake which played Sparta’s Lucie Martínková through on goal.
The Giallorosse did manage to get back on equal terms when Elisa Bartoli volleyed home with just over ten minutes remaining.

A dramatic late winner from Emilie Haavi meant that Roma took a deserved lead back to Italy for the second leg next Thursday.
