[AMERICANS ABROAD] The marquee match of the second leg of the round of 32 in the UEFA Women's Champions League pitting Swedish club Tyreso against France's Paris St. Germain featured six U.S. internationals, and Tyreso held on for a 0-0 tie thanks to goalie Ashlyn Harris that gave it a 2-1 aggregate victory. Americans to score in Wednesday action included Megan Rapinoe off the bench for French champion Lyon.

In the first half, Harris stopped French international Marie-Laure Delie and got help as a deflected shot from Laure Boulleau hit the crossbar.

Christen Press, Ali Krieger and fellow UNC products Meghan Klingenberg and Whitney Engen, who recently returned to Tyreso from Liverpool Ladies, also started for the Swedish club, which will finish second in its domestic league, while another Carolina product, Tobin Heath started for PSG.

Rapinoe came on for the last half hour and scored the sixth goal for Lyon, the 2011 and 2012 champion, in its 6-0 win over FC Twente that moved the French club into the round of 16 against Turbine Potsdam.

Alyssa Mautz and Nick Ashley combined for three goals in Zorkiy Krasnogorsk's 4-1 win over Iceland's Thor/KA that sent the Russian club into the final 16 with a 6-2 aggregate win.

Sinead Farrelly, one of six Americans to start for Apollon, had the lone goal for the Cypriot champion, which tied Austria's Neulengbach, 1-1, but was unable to make up the 2-1 deficit from the first leg.

ROUND OF 16, Draw:
Barcelona vs. FC Zurich
Konak Belediyesi/Unia Raciborz vs. Neulengbach
Fortuna vs. Tyreso
Spartak Subotica/Rossiyanka vs. Torres
Turbine Potsdam vs. Lyon
Zorkiy Krasnogorsk vs. Birmingham
