Wolfsburg v Brescia:
Ralf Kellermann, Wolfsburg coach
We are very happy because we haven't had the chance to face an Italian team in the last four years. So this is new for us. I am also happy as we have a lot of Italian people living here in Wolfsburg and I hope a lot of people will come to the game.

We had a big change in the summer – people think that only Martina Müller is not here any more, but we also lost Viola Odebrecht who was an important person in our team. Nadine Kessler is also not available, and those have been three important players in recent years. Of course the change was going to take time, but you can see that we've got better and better in recent weeks. And I am convinced that with good preparation with all our players in the winter, our development will continue.   

Martina Rosucci, Brescia player
So Wolfsburg ... one of the strongest teams in the world ...

Frankfurt v Rosengård:
Siegfried Dietrich, Frankfurt general manager

The Swedish league is among the best in the world. Rosengård are an experienced side who have been successful in the past. We will see in March which team is the better side – we've heard that Rosengård will strengthen their squad during the winter break.

We are happy to have reached the quarter-finals and of course we want to advance. We might still sign a forward during the winter to defend our title. But we have great respect for Rosengård and we'll need to fight hard to overcome them.

Therese Sjögran, Rosengård sporting director
It's an OK draw. It could have been worse, it could have been better. Lyon are the team that I know best right now – and now we won't meet until a possible final.

Lyon v Slavia Praha:
Tereza Kožárová, Slavia player
We've been drawn against the strongest possible opponent. We'd like to surprise them with our performances.

Jitka Chlastáková, Slavia player
It will be really hard, but we will fight for the best possible result.

Blanka Pěničková, Slavia player
Lyon are really strong, have scored a lot of goals and we start away – it will not be easy at all.

Barcelona v Paris Saint-Germain:
Lindsey Horan, Paris player and Barcelona fan
