Twice Champions League Women winners Linz AG Froschberg recovered from two defeats against French clubs at the start of Stage 2 to record two wins in the last two matches. Tonight, ETIVAL ASRTT suffered at the hands of Austria’s players in France.
Now the situation in Group C is very interesting. With Linz's 3-1 away win against Grand Quevilly in the return leg two weeks ago, the Austrian champions brought themselves back into the game for promotion to the quarter-finals.
Tonight's victory launched them to safer ground, but everything remains open until the last match on December 14th when two French clubs will play against each other. If Grand Quevilly wins, all three teams could hold on to two victories. So far, in the opening leg, Etival ASRTT beat Grand-Quevilly ALCL.
