MADRID, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- FC Barcelona will face Wolfsburg Women in the first semifinal of the Women's Champions League after the two teams won their respective quarterfinal on Friday.
While Barca had to work hard before a late goal from French international Kheira Hamraoui gave them a 1-0 win against a well-organized Atletico Madrid, Wolfsburg had a much easier 9-1 win against a Glasgow City side that had not played since February.
Pernille Mosgaard-Harder scored four goals as Wolfsburg controlled their game from start to finish, leading 4-0 at half time, with two goals from Harder and two from Ingrid Engen, with goals in the 44th minute and three minutes into injury time effectively Glasgow's slim hopes of reaching the last four.
Harder scored twice more in the second half, with Rauch and two late own goals completing the rout.
Atletico Madrid were without five first-team players who had tested positive for Covid-19 but made Barcelona work hard for their win.
Although Atletico hardly created chances of their own, their defensive discipline limited Barca's options until midway through the second half and then keeper Hedvig Lindhal was on hand to make a string of saves to keep Barca out until Hamraoui was able to sweep the ball home following a cross from the right in the 81st minute.
