(Arsenal Ladies win 18-0 on aggregate)
Arsenal Ladies are through to the last 16 of the Women's Champions League after scoring nine times in their second leg against PAOK at Meadow Park giving them an 18-0 aggregate victory.
Tony Gervaise's team all but booked their place in the next round with an emphatic 9-0 win in Salonika last week but the manager had warned his players before the return match not to take their foot off the pedal.
Arsenal were clearly listening. Kim Little - scorer of four goals in the first leg - broke the deadlock in the 10th minute after latching onto a pass from Gemma Davison. The Scottish striker doubled her tally two minutes later with another cool finish past the PAOK keeper.
Katie Chapman went through to make it 3-0 shortly afterwards and Jennifer Beattie scored Arsenal's fourth goal in the space of 10 minutes when she lobbed the Greek keeper after Rachel Yankey's lofted pass.
An own goal two minutes before the break increased PAOK's misery and showed that Arsenal are in no mood to take it easy on the Greek champions.
The goals continued to come in the second period with Little completing her hat-trick two minutes after half-time.
Davison made it seven with 16 minutes to play and shortly afterwards it was eight; substitute Lauren Burton getting on the scoresheet.
The emphatic victory was complete six minutes from time when Laura Coombs fired home Arsenal's ninth of the afternoon.
Referee: Yuliya Medvedeva - Keldyusheva (KAZ)
