Barcelona shattered the attendance record for women's football after a crowd of 91,553 watched them progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League with victory over rivals Real Madrid.

Leading 3-1 from the first leg and roared on by a partisan Nou Camp, Barca won 5-2 on the night and 8-3 on aggregate to set up a last-four meeting with either Arsenal or Wolfsburg.

The previous highest turnout for a women's club game came in 2019 when 60,739 people saw Barcelona win 2-0 away to Atletico Madrid at Wanda Metropolitano.

Wednesday evening's crowd at Europe's largest stadium also dwarfed the record for spectators at a women's international, set when 80,203 fans witnessed the United States secure Olympic gold by beating Japan 2-1 at Wembley during London 2012.

Real briefly threatened to spoil the party after Olga Carmona's penalty and a fine strike from Claudia Zornoza put them 2-1 ahead on the night following Mapi Leon's early opener.

But Barcelona were not to be denied the El Clasico bragging rights on a historic evening.

Second-half goals from Aitana Bonmati, Claudia Pina, Ballon d'Or holder Alexia Putellas and Caroline Hansen comfortably sent them through.

They will discover their semi-final opponents on Thursday when 2007 winners Arsenal travel to Volkswagen Arena to take on Wolfsburg with the tie level at 1-1 following last week's first leg.

Ramona Bachmann celebrates after scoring the winner

In the night's other quarter-final clash, Paris Saint-German scored in extra-time to draw 2-2 with Bayern Munich and advance 4-3 on aggregate.

Sandy Baltimore gave the hosts a two-goal cushion early on after her cross deceived keeper Bayern keeper Janina Leitzig but the Germans fought back to force extra time with strikes either side of half-time from Saki Kumagai and Klara Buhl.

The momentum was with the visitors but Ramona Bachmann to score the decisive goal in the 112th minute.
