  • LSK will be the only new quarter-finalists, and Norway’s first team in the last eight since 2009/10. Just like in last season’s round of 32, they drew at home to Brøndby in the first leg then won by a two-goal margin in Denmark.
  • Ada Hegerberg scored in both legs against Ajax, and in the first became only the seventh player to reach 40 European women’s club goals, at the age of 23, to keep up their bid for a fourth straight title.
  • Lyon’s Wendie Renard made her 77th European appearance in the second leg, moving level with Emma Byrne and only four off Camille Abily’s record.
  • Ajax were the only last-16 debutants.
  • Fran Kirby’s hat-trick was the highlight of a superb Chelsea display but Millie Bright’s red card leave her facing a suspension in the quarter-finals.
  • Wolfsburg (only past winner involved other than Lyon) also knocked out Atlético in last season’s round of 32.

First legs:

Wednesday 17 October
LSK Kvinner 1-1 Brøndby
FC Zürich 0-2 Bayern München
Wolfsburg 4-0 Atlético Madrid
Ajax 0-4 Lyon
Barcelona 5-0 Glasgow City
Linköping 0-2 Paris Saint-Germain
Chelsea 1-0 Fiorentina

  • Wang Shuang of Paris became the first Chinese player to score in this competition.
  • Wolfsburg’s Lara Dickenmann suffered a serious knee injury against Atleti, ruling her out for several months.
  • Slavia are on course to avenge their 6-1 aggregate loss to Rosengård at this stage two years ago, after a game where Anja Mittag increaded her competition-record tally of goals to 51.
  • Glasgow are one of three survivors from the qualifying round with Ajax and Slavia.
