The Women’s Champions League returned for the knockout rounds this week and the quarter-finals did not disappoint.

Here are our awards.

The Cat Amongst the Pigeons Award

Well, nobody expected Real Madrid to take the lead against Barcelona. In a fine first half performance, Madrid gave Barça a bigger fright than anyone else has managed this season.

They couldn’t sustain it but this was a superb start, they were rewarded for it, and who knows what would’ve happened without that controversial penalty decision going against them?

The Olivia Rodrigo deja vu Award

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Sunday, Alexia Putellas on Tuesday. In the Clásico.

The Shop Window Award

Two corners, both tucked away by Marie-Antoinette Katoto. She is set to leave PSG this summer and they will sorely miss the 23-year-old, who is scoring around a goal a game for the sixth season in a row.

The Nothing Lasts Forever Award

Bayern are still in the tie, though. Unfortunate to lose in front of a crowd of 13,000 in Munich, a stunning Klara Bühl free-kick meant PSG’s run without conceding in this season’s competition finally ended at 622 minutes.

The Award for Biggest Turning Point

A moment of panic and the game in Turin was turned on its head. Lyon were leading until Ellie Carpenter saw red on the halfway line …

The Award for An Even Bigger Cat amongst Even More Pigeons

Lyon had been good value for their lead but Juventus took full advantage of having an extra player. First Cristiana Girelli equalised, then Agnese Bonfantini gave them a lead to take into a huge second leg.

The Unstoppable Force Award

That’s now nine goals in seven Champions League appearances. How do you stop Tabea Waßmuth scoring in Europe? Answers on a postcard.

The Childhood Dream Award

A crucial Champions League goal at your home stadium for the team you grew up supporting. Lotte Wubben-Moy took it brilliantly and must still be on cloud nine this morning.
