  • The opening 5-1 win at Lyon, the first time OL had conceded five at home, set them up for comfortable progress which was clinched with a game to spare when they lost 1-0 to the holders (their head-to-head advantage making the Gunners safe). Injury to Vivianne Miedema in that game, however, was a big blow on top of already having lost Beth Mead. However, even without that pair they hit nine in their last match against Zürich to finish top.
  • Arsenal have reached a record 15 quarter-finals, in as many entries; they have also become only the second club after Lyon to get to 100 games in this competition.

Roma: No previous European meetings

  • A 9-0 opening victory against Benfica was the spark to a comfortable progress with a new mark for this round of 29 goals, even if their perfect group stage record dating back to last season was ended by a 3-1 loss at Bayern on Matchday 4. Still, the performances of Aitana Bonmatí, Geyse, Mariona Caldentey and Asisat Oshoala among others have ensured the injury loss of Alexia Putellas and departure of Jenni Hermoso have not halted the Barcelona juggernaut as they attempt to win back the title.
  • Reached three finals in four years and attracted two record-breaking 90,000+ crowds to their home knockout games at the Camp Nou last season. This season broke the group stage best with the 46,967 that watched them play Bayern.

  • Bayern had to come from behind to beat Rosengård and Benfica in their first two games, recovering from 2-0 down in Lisbon to win 3-2, and that proved crucial as they were to go through with a game to spare. Became the first team to take points off Barcelona in a group with their 3-1 Matchday 4 victory.
  • Beat eventual winners Lyon 1-0 at home in the group stage last season and took Paris to extra time in the quarter-finals.

  • Began with a 1-0 win at Paris and picked up four points against Real Madrid before victory at Vllaznia on 16 December took them through exactly one year on from the 4-0 loss at Wolfsburg that ended their hopes in last season's group stage. A 3-0 win against Paris in Stamford Bridge made sure of first place.

  • A shock exit was on the cards after losing 5-1 at home to Arsenal and being held by Juventus. But two defeats of Zurich and a gritty 1-0 win at Arsenal meant that they only needed a draw at home to Juventus in their last game and the 0-0 result took them into a 14th quarter-final in 16 years.
  • During the group stage became the first team to pass 100 wins in this competition, adding to their many records including the eighth title claimed last season.
