Anja Mittag

  • Record breakers

Anja Mittag has hit three goals for new club Paris to become all-time top competition scorer on 49, one ahead of Conny Pohlers; she could also become the first to a half-century on Wednesday. Rosengård's Marta has got five and is third on 46.

Frankfurt (in the round of 32 first leg at Standard Liège) and Lyon (in the round of 16 second leg against Atlético Madrid) became the first teams to record 50 UEFA women's club competition wins.

Lyon's 6-0 victory over Atlético took them two clear of Turbine Potsdam as all-time top scorers on 238 goals (from 65 games, in which they have conceded only 25).

• If Frankfurt reach the final they would equal Arsenal's record of having played 79 UEFA women's club competition matches.

Frankfurt won the tournament's sixth penalty shoot-out, 5-4 against LSK Kvinner in the round of 16. Frankfurt became the only side to have both won and lost shoot-outs in UEFA women's club competition, having been beaten by Umeå in the 2003 semi-finals.

• For just the second time, one nation had three entrants in this season's competition: Germany (equalling their 2009/10 feat). Like in that campaign Bayern München kept their status as the sole Frauen Bundesliga representative not to have won the competition, becoming the first team from their country to lose in the round of 32, against Twente.

  • Rematches in quarter-finals

2011/12
Quarter-final: Rosengård 1-0/0-3 Frankfurt (agg: 1-3)

2003/04
Semi-final: Rosengård 0-0, 1-4 Frankfurt (agg: 1-4)
(Rosengård results under former name Malmö)
