Lyon 0-1 Wolfsburg (agg: 2-1)
Lyon made full use of their 2-0 win in Germany last Thursday to reach a joint-record eighth semi-final. It was a competitive tussle throughout between two teams only separated by penalties in last season’s final, and it was from the spot that Caroline Graham Hansen gave Wolfsburg hope with eight minutes left after Kadeisha Buchanan had fouled Pernille Harder.

However, urged on by a Stade de Lyon crowd of 14,128, the holders looked the more likely team to score in the dying minutes and deep in added time Wolfsburg’s Anna Blässe was sent off for her second bookable offence. A joint-record fourth title remains on for Lyon.

Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Bayern München (agg: 4-1)
For only the second time after 2006/07 there will be no German semi-finalists after Paris made light of their first-leg deficit to the delight of nearly 14,000 fans at Parc des Princes. The 2015 runners-up were kept out by Tinja-Riikka Korpola last week but the Finland goalkeeper was beaten in the fourth minute tonight when Marie-Laure Delie pounced following a defensive mix-up.

Just eight minutes later Paris led on aggregate through Cristiane after a Verónica Boquete free-kick was blocked. Before half-time it was three through Shirley Cruz Traña when she stole the ball and lobbed Kopola, and Cristiane made certain with her second of the night thanks to a tremendous 52nd-minute combination with Delie. A booking tonight means Paris defender Laura Georges will be suspended for the away first leg of their semi-final with Barcelona.

Barcelona 2-0 Rosengård (agg: 3-0)
Barcelona will face Paris next month after finishing off the job in front of 7,350 fans, their second-biggest ever home attendance after the crowd that saw them draw 0-0 at home to the French side in the quarter-finals last season. Having surprised many by winning in Sweden last week, Barcelona were put under pressure in the first half, with Ella Masar hitting the post early on to set the tone.

But against a Rosengård side missing the injured Lotta Schelin, Barcelona rallied after the interval and Jenni Hermoso doubled their aggregate lead with her shot going in off both posts following a beautiful diagonal pass from Vicky Losada. Barcelona were now on top and got their second goal with virtually the last kick as Bárbara Latorre sent fellow substitute Mariona Caldentey clear and she calmly beat Zecira Musovic.
