Thanks, Mali.

Yes, as your link informs us, last year's finalists Lyon beat Zvezda 1-0 in the second leg; they now will face Arsenal in the Semifinal. Arsenal squeaked past Linköpings on the away goals rule, after a 3-3 aggregate score.

The other Semi will be an all-German matchup between Duisburg (who won the Cup two years ago) and the powerhouse of Potsdam (who won last year). Potsdam rang up a 9-2 aggregate on Juvisy, while Duisburg dispatched Everton on a 5-2 aggregate score.

Could we see a repeat of last year's nail-biting Lyon-Potsdam final on May 26?

Ah, the lyonnaises = women, the lyonnais = men. They have done better this year.

By the way, Tim said that he couldn't imagine so much cheating in the women's game as you see from the men. Like from Busquets... all that diving. More honesty.

well, they don't simulate indeed.
it's pleasant to watch, even if it's not as precise as the men play.
the germans play hard. they fight.

I wish I could watch. I've only read articles about women's football mostly, for example even some of the more known players must take on additional jobs to maintain a living in society.

they look more tired than the men. they aren't as doped as them certainly.
