Draw lowdown
• If quarter-final debutants Brescia want to reach the decider in Italy they must get past a Wolfsburg team that have not failed to make the semis in three previous entries.

• After two straight exits to Wolfsburg, Rosengård now take on Frankfurt, who beat them at this stage in 2011/12 and the 2003/04 semi-finals.

• Slavia are in their first quarter-final against a Lyon side with a perfect record of progressing through this round six times.

• This is Barcelona and Paris's first meeting in Europe – in women's competition anyway ...

• Should there be an all-German semi-final, Wolfsburg will want a repeat of their 2012/13 last-four success against Turbine Potsdam.

• A Lyon-Paris semi-final would be a rematch of last season's round of 16 tie when the capital club won 1-0 at Stade de Gerland after a 1-1 home draw.
