The calm before the storm. That's what this week's Women's Champions League action felt like. Three months after the group stages concluded, the knockout rounds arrived and the first legs of each of the quarter-final ties all ended 1-0, setting next week's second legs up for plenty of fireworks.

Bayern Munich were the only team to win their home leg, beating Arsenal narrowly.

Barcelona's win in Rome was little surprise, though the fine margin of victory was, while neither French side had reason to celebrate.
