Aussie football stars Sam Kerr and Ellie Carpenter are through to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time.
Kerr starred for Chelsea in last week’s home leg of the last-16, drawing a foul to earn her side a penalty as the Blues survived an early red card.
This time around Kerr was not able to have the same impact but Chelsea managed a 1-1draw away to Atletico Madrid in Italy to advance.

Chelsea played Atletico in Monza because Covid-19 restrictions prevented the reigning English champions travelling to Madrid.
The match pivoted on a pair of penalty kicks two minutes apart in the second half.
In the 75th minute, Chelsea’s Niamh Charles conceded a spot kick but Atletico’s English striker Toni Duggan hit the woodwork.
Two minutes later, Sonia Garcia of Atletico gave away a penalty and Chelsea’s Norwegian defender Maren Mjelde converted.
French striker Emelyne Laurent equalised with almost the last kick of the game but Chelsea and Kerr went through 3-1 on aggregate.
Meanwhile, Carpenter was interestingly rested for Olympique Lyonnais’s record-breaking win over Brondby.
Carpenter was voted player of the match by the fans after a strong outing, with the full-back helping Lyon to a record-equalling 29th successive Woman’s Champions League game without defeat.
They extended that dominance overnight, claiming a 3-1 at Brondby to cruise into the quarterfinals of the Women’s Champions League.
That was despite having Carpenter kept on the bench, although the 20-year old will need to be well-rested as Lyon eye a potential French league decider against PSG.

There is also every chance Carpenter and Kerr face off when the full draw for the final eight is made.
While Lyon have been on a stellar run it has not been without setbacks and after leading 2-0 from the first leg, Lyon had an early shock.
Nanna Christiansen gave the home team an 11th minute lead, but English striker Nikita Parris replied after 32 minutes and Melvine Malard put the visitors ahead in the match 10 minutes later.
Veteran France centre-half Wendie Renard converted a 50th minute penalty so seal a 5-1 aggregate victory.
