The Women’s Champions League group stages drew to a close last night, where the eight quarter-finalists were announced.
The four teams that topped their group are seeded (Barcelona, Arsenal, Wolfsburg, Chelsea), and the four runners-up are referred to as unseeded (Lyon, Bayern Munich, PSG, Roma).
Chelsea and Wolfsburg had an undefeated round, in which the Blues won 5 times and the German side became victorious 4 times.
Arsenal top Group C, with a grand total of 13 points, with defending Champions finishing in second just two points behind.
Although a loss on Matchday 4 against Bayern Munich stopped Barcelona’s winning streak, the Spanish side secured top spot with an impressive goal difference of 23.
Although Polish striker Ewa Pajor found the net an astonishing 7 times in just 6 games for Wolfburg, it’s Barcelona that racked up the highest total of goals in the group stage (29).
On the other end of the scale, Chelsea had an impressive 5 clean sheets, but Slavia Praha’s Olivie Lukasova stole the defending show with the most saves by any goalkeeper in the group stage (51).
