  1. City's journey in the Champions League continues...

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    ...but tonight's story is at an end.

    It was all at once breathless, frustrating, exhilarating and terrifying - fittingly for this Halloween night - but in the end Love prevails.

  2. The low-down on the teams in the last eight

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    Ada Hegerberg

    Lyon will be the team Glasgow City will most look to avoid – aside from four consecutive Champions League titles, they have a dangerous weapon in Ada Hegerberg.

    The striker won the inaugural Women’s Ballon d’Or last year and at just 24-years-old is already the highest scorer in the history of the competition with 53 goals in 50 appearances.

    Last year’s finalists Barcelona cruised to the quarters with an 8-1 aggregate win over Minsk and would be very difficult opponents.

    Scotland’s Kim Little helped Arsenal progress – she scored two penalties in the 13-2 aggregate win over Slavia Prague.

    Paris Saint-Germain were the team to end City’s European success in 2015 in the quarters – they beat them 7-0 over the two legs.

    Atletico Madrid put Manchester City out of this year’s competition, while Bayern Munich defeated Hibs 10-1 on aggregate the last time they faced Scottish opposition in 2016, and Wolfsburg won their last-16 tie against Twente 7-0 over two legs.

    Simply put, whoever City face in the next round will be a top-class side.

  3. Who can City face in the quarter-finals?

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    City have a long time to gather their breath after that incredible game, before they find out their quarter-final opponents – the draw takes place over a week from now on Friday November 8.

    Also in the hat for the last eight draw are Arsenal, Paris, Atletico Madrid, Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and six-time winners Lyon.

    Scott Booth will have plenty of time to prepare his side for whoever they may face – the first leg will be played either March 24 or 25.

  4. 'I'd take Arsenal next' - Love

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    Winning penalty taker Jo Love: "I've missed penalties in the past that have cost us but hopefully that's over now.

    "Everyone stepped up tonight and it's been the same all season.

    "I've got no preference for who we play - it'll be absoutely ridiculous whoever we get. We got a bit of a doing the last time we got to the quarters (against Paris). Maybe Arsenal, to see a couple of friends!"

  5. 'That's why you play for this club' - Alexander

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    Goalkeeper Lee Alexander: "For a long time we were under the cosh but nights like these at Petershill are unbelievable. That's why you play for this club.

    "It's hard to put into words - I don't know how I fell, didn't even know that was the last penalty!

    "I'm just so proud of everyone."

  6. 'Took your breath away' - Booth

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg - City win 3-1 on pens)

    City head coach Scott Booth speaks breathlessly after the match: "It took your breath away, that one. It didn't go to plan first-half but we came out and played really brave football second-half.

    "They bullied us a little in the first-half but we came out and created chances, hit the bar, controlled the game for a lot. It would have been nice to get the goal earlier but to go through is incredible and to win it on penalties was amazing.

    "She (Lee Alexander) kept us in it. Sometimes the keeper gets those moments and she deserves her moment but as a squad and team it was incredible.

    "This is what weve been striving for for four and a half years - to get over that line and make the quarter-finals is amazing.

    "We'll take anyone now because they'll all be different class - the top teams in Europe."

  7. Jo Love scores to send City through

    FT: Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    JO LOVE WINS IT. A stunning penalty blasted into the top right corner of the net puts Glasgow City through to the quarter-finals for the second time in their history.

  8. Jo Love steps up to win it...

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Megan Foley's penalty is saved by the Brondby keeper but Louise Kristiansen misses too. It's up to Jo Love as she steps up to take City's fifth - score and City are through to the quarter-finals...

  9. Glasgow ahead in penalty shootout

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Abilda is stopped by Lee Alexander - the City keeper has had an incredible performance and truly deserves to win this for her side. Eilish McSorley scores to put City 2-1 up after three penalties each.

  10. ALEXANDER SAVE

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Lee Alexander with one more stunning save to her left! It's 1-1 after two penalties each.

  11. Howat misses penalty

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Brondby put the second penalty away, but Kirsty Howat misses - the keeper guesses and dives to her right to palm it away. Brondby to take the lead next.

  12. City score first in shootout

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Skipper Leanne Ross steps up for the first penalty... AND SCORES.

    She sends the keeper the wrong way with a cool penalty.

  13. Zero shots on target

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    City will be lamenting not testing the Brondby keeper - no shots on target throughout the entire game.

  14. It's going to penalties

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    After extra-time, nothing has separated the teams over the two legs.

    Lee Alexander has been in spectacular form in the City goal - she'll hope she can carry that form through to the penalty shootout.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Eilish McSorley comes on for Sam Kerr - a change that is likely with penalties in mind.

  16. CLOSE!

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Leanne Ross lifts a free-kick given 20 yards out over the wall - it curves just past the post. City have had so many chances but still not testing the Brondby keeper as we enter the last couple of minutes.

  17. DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Hayley Sinclair and Carly Girasoli are on for the home side - it looks a straight switch for fellow attackers Hayley Lauder and Clare Shine. We're into the final few minutes before this tie will come down to penalty kicks.

  18. Post update

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Nicola Docherty wins a free-kick on the left that is floated in by Leanne Ross but cleared for a corner - Hayley Lauder threatens once more from the resulting corner, volleying towards goal, but it's headed away once more by the Brondby defence. Lee Alexander, after a very busy first 90 minutes, has barely had to do anything in extra-time.

  19. CLOSE!

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Incidentally, Scot Kim Little had a much less stressful night than the one that continues here in Glasgow - her second penalty of the two legs helped Arsenal to a 13-2 victory on aggregate over Slavia Prague to send them into the quarter-finals. City continue their bid to join them with some good possession and eventually Kirsty Howat fizzes it across goal from the right - Hayley Lauder just unable to turn it in at the near post.

  20. KICK-OFF

    Glasgow City 0-2 Brondby (2-2 agg)

    Back underway for one final time - can City grab a late winner before it is settled on penalties?
