Which teams make up the title?
Reigning champions Lyon are chasing their fifth straight title. Other teams in the quarter-finals: Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg, Glasgow City, Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Atlético Madrid.
When are the matches played?
The first two quarter-finals, Glasgow City-Wolfsburg and Atlético Madrid-Barcelona, are played on Friday and the next day it's time for the remaining two, Arsenal-Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon-Bayern Munich. The semifinals will be played August 25-26 and the final, which will be decided in San Sebastián, will take place on August 30.
How is the tournament affected by the corona pandemic?
Just like for the men, it is a compressed final game that applies, with single meetings on a neutral level in front of empty stands instead of the classic home / away setup. For the ladies, northern Spain will be the scene of the remaining matches - quarter-finals, semi-finals and final - with Bilbao and San Sebastián as hosts.
Corona mode in the law?
Atlético Madrid, with Swedish national team goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl, announced last week that the club has suffered five corona falls. The infected should not have shown any symptoms, but were isolated.
On Monday, after the rest of the team was tested again, all negatively, Atlético resumed training.
New rules open for Lindahl?
As many player contracts expired during the summer, Uefa has decided to allow the clubs to register up to six new players before the playoffs. This also applies to players who have represented other clubs during the current tournament, however, only three of these may have belonged to any of the other clubs that are ready for the quarter finals.
One such player is Hedvig Lindahl, who switched from Wolfsburg to Atlético Madrid during the summer, and is part of Atlético's match squad for Friday.
What are favorites?
German Wolfsburg and Spanish Barcelona, with stars such as Jennifer Hermoso and Lieke Martens, can apologize. Lyon, who have won the last four Champions League tournaments, are again clear favorites.
However, the team's windy Dutchman Shanice van de Sanden warns of the tricky approach, where it is a win or lose immediately.
- Usually if you play badly in the first match, you get the chance to correct it. But if we lose now - then we are knocked out, says van de Sanden to the International Football Association's website, fifa.com, before Lyons' quarter-final against German Bayern Munich.
Is Hegerberg ready?
Norwegian superstar Ada Hegerberg's season actually ended in January, when she pulled off the cruciate ligament. But the corona crisis has pushed the Champions League play-offs forward properly, and when Lyon presented their squad to Spain, Hegerberg was there. If she can play, it would be a decent reinforcement for already very strong Lyon: with 53 goals, Hegerberg is the top scorer in Champions League history, and last year she scored a hat-trick in the final against Barcelona.
Which Swedes are involved?
Amanda Ilestedt and Hanna Glas in Bayern Munich, Fridolina Rolfö in Wolfsburg and Hedvig Lindahl in Atlético Madrid. For Lindahl, it can be directly into the hot air, she has not played any match with her new club before the quarter-final against Barcelona.
Where can you watch the matches?
Nent Group has the rights to the playoffs. Quarterfinals, semifinals and the final will therefore be available on Viaplay.
