We were treated to another thrilling round of Women’s Champions League action as clubs booked their spots in the semi-finals.

And it’s time to hand out our awards.

The Quarter-Life Crisis Award

Wolfsburg away is a difficult atmosphere to undertake but Arsenal looked a shadow of themselves at the Volkswagen Arena and extended an unfortunate record with their eighth quarter-final exit.

The Gum On Your Shoe Award

When you need to gain some ground call up Sakina Karchaoui. The PSG defender has impressively carried the ball a competition-leading 1514 metres and added to that tally against Bayern Munich.

The Try it On My Own Award

We’re giving a nod to the late Whitney Houston with this one as Claudia Zornoza’s absolute belter against Barcelona left us picking up our jaws.

The Depleted But Not Defeated Award

Bayern Munich had a big challenge ahead of them against PSG with multiple stars ruled out due to COVID-19 but showed they’re not a side to dismiss after registering the most shots against the Parisian side this season.

The Journey of a Lifetime Award

We have to give credit to Juventus’ impressive run this season after taking seven-time winners Lyon all the way to the end in dramatic fashion.

The American Dream Award

Twenty-two-year-old United States international Catarina Macario made her case to suggest she’s a generational talent after pulling off some incredible close control skills before finding the target against Juventus.

The Let’s Here It For The Clean-up Crew Award

Wolfsburg’s match against Arsenal was initially delayed thanks to some extra festivities foreshadowing their eventual win.

The clean-up crew did their best to clear the confetti by picking up each individual piece by hand before bringing out a vacuum. A+ for effort.

The Calm Cool and Collected Award

Didier Ollé-Nicolle’s decision to bring on Ramona Bachmann in the 93rd-minute paid off when the forward remained ice-cold deep into extra time to send PSG through.

The Haters Gonna Hate Award

Those who think there’s no support for women’s sports were shown up after a record-breaking 91,553 fans turned up to watch Barcelona beat Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
